What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Food at St. Edward's tastes really good the first time you are here, but it doesn't change often so if you get bored of the same thing quickly then you might be in trouble. They cook it well and it tastes good, so the food's not bad, it's just that it doesn't change very much so there isn't much variety. There are two dining halls, Hunt and Ragsdale and then you have The Huddle which is a Tex-Mex food place. There is also a little convenient store called Outtakes which is located in Hunt.
Mary from Riverside, CA
There is something for everyone to eat on campus, whether you prefer traditional American food or you are a vegan. There are two main dining halls, Hunt Hall and Ragsdale. There is also The Huddle, which offers barbecue and a Chipotle-like style of Mexican food. The food is very good and is made fresh daily from scratch. There is alwasys plenty to choose from whenever you get hungry. St. Edward's is known for using sustainable ingredients, which means that most of their ingredients come from a 150-mile radius, keeping the food fresh and healthy. St. Edward's also offers two on-campus coffee shops through local coffee shop Jo's Coffee, and Starbucks Coffee is served in Hunt Hall alongside a bakery.

The food at St. Edward's comes from local farmers and growers, significantly lowering the impact on the environment, while also providing very healthy choices in diet. There is food ranging from Texas Grill to Japanese Sushi, and a wide array of options are available to vegans and vegetarians as well as anyone with a sweet-tooth.

The only problem I do have with dining is the hours -- vacation hours for cafeterias are sometimes rather small or non existent on some days, I would press future students to invest in bringing a small fridge to hold extra food in if they aren't going home over break.
Diana from Santa Fe, NM
The food on campus is very expensive if you do not have any meal plan, but the food is a lot more healthy and appetizing than most of the other state schools I have visited. The only negative I would present is the inability of some of the kitchen staff to cook any meat all the way. There have been many times where I have received an uncooked piece of chicken or beef, but I believe this might be due to the cooks feeling rushed. Overall the food is delicious.
Nicole from San Antonio, TX
We have two separate cafeterias and 3 coffee shops--there's something for everyone.
Sara from Shermans Dale, PA
The food is great here. There are many places you can go to eat.
Joselin from Austin, TX
Expensive but many different options including organics and local food. Jo's coffee shop is also included in the meal plan and provides many options for delicious drinks and food.
Paris from Austin, TX
After visiting campus, I realized that I would never go hungry! If you cannot find something to eat on campus you can definitely find something near by. Literally a walk away!
Victoria from Houston, TX
The food is great, St. Ed's is catered by Bon Appetit which is an Austin company that gets it's food from Austin farmers. So very local and fresh. There are two major dining facilities with vegetarian, sushi, pasta/pizza, salad bar & station, sandwich station (like subway), and an entree which changes every day.
