What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
There are tons of restaurants close to campus, but I wish there would be more on campus.
t
The dining hall food is not the greatest but it is a blessing to have. Some days are better than others but there will always be something that you can pick to eat. Breakfast is amazing and lunch and dinner are alright. It is a great time to meet with friends and relax. The staff are all really nice and they work really hard.
Michelle from Brownsville, TX
Recently installed a new food court with up to day restaurants and is really fun to eat in the cafe.
Francisco from Edinburg, TX
plenty of variety
Marlin from Pharr, TX
The food is wonderful! So many options.
Nilani from Edinburg, TX
In the student Union, we have Mexican food, Subshop, Smoothie place, starbucks, and a convenience store. There is ONE cafeteria around campus, the food varies every day and I think is delicious. They SHOULD have more variety though. Currently UTPA is going through some changes. They are adding more restaurants around campus which I think is just a FABULOUS idea. In the Library, we have what is called a Grab n' go They have drinks, coffee, chocolate, Shipley's, etc.
