What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
Okay, now I must say...Temple has some good and some bad when it comes to food. However, after you become acclimated with the options that you have, you will learn how to maneuver so that you are close to satisfied. The main cafeteria, Johnson and Hardwick Dining Hall, is an all-you-can-eat style dining experience. There are nights when you can find foods that will make you want more and there are others where you'll say, Lord, why me? LOL! Also, another main eatery is the Valaida S. Walker Food Court located in the Howard Gittis Student Center. Here, Temple students can find Einstein Bagel Brothers, WOW! Wingery and other well known vendors. The only downside to this place is that it costs a lot. You don't get a bang for your buck like at Johnson & Hardwick Dining Hall.
