What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
UC Irvine has a lot of food options! It is also a great campus for healthy eaters, vegetarians, and vegans. Aside from the UCI dining choices, there are also many chain restaurants on campus, including but not limited to: Starbucks, Wahoo's Fish Tacos, Quiznos, Subway, Einstein's Bagels, Panda Express, Organic Greens To Go, and Jamba Juice. There are also many restaurants and eateries across the street in the University Town Center.

The Dining Commons (Pippin & Mesa Commons) are constantly busy with mostly Freshman and some upperclassman. It is good the first year, but then you realize you got The Freshman 15. Once you get into apartments, you rely on the fast food places nearby and ramen. BC Cavern and Phoenix Grill have amazing burritos!

Ok Iâ??ll be honest with the food. In Mesa Court, we have the â??anteateryâ??. The food is alright but some days it is awesome. The cafeteria will always have pizza and hamburgers which are always great no matter what for lunch and dinner. Other than that, we have different stations that serve different food depending on the day. The â??homeâ?? station has some traditional homecooked meals such as fried chicken, beef, etc. The â??Fire and Iceâ?? station changes depending on the week, so they have â??taco tuesdaysâ?? and â??sushi bowl saturdaysâ?? etc. If you are vegan, vegetarian, or you just like vegetables there is a dedicated vegan station and salad bar station. Everything is all you can eat. There is something pretty awesome that happens every so often. please see the unusual traditions portion of this review!

The dorm food isn't the best, but compared to other school food, it's pretty good. A lot of options, and the occasional theme night is sure to please.
