What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
There is only one campus dining hall, and the hours are not flexible. The food is okay but gets worse once you've been eating it for months. The other dining locations on campus also have weird hours. Most everything shuts down after classes are done. During weekends the dining hall only serves brunch and dinner.
Kathryn from Lees Summit, MO
I love the food and the dining hall staff is very friendly. We have a wide variety of options including vegan and gluten-free options.
Claire from Parkville, MO
Chic-Fil-a all the way!! Very convenient, always fresh, and never gets old! Try their fresh squeezed lemonade! Baja Fresh is also great if it seems Chipotle is a far walk. The cafeteria food is good on a regular basis. On special occasions, it is delicious; meal plan well spent!
Julie from O Fallon, MO
The food is my favorite about the campus! You have so many choices of food to choose from and even if you decide you don't want any of the food from the cafe it only takes 5 minutes to go to the plaza and grab a bite with some friends.
UMKC student
Cafeteria food is average, nothing too special. There are a few places on campus to eat, such as Chick-fil-a in the union. Also there are a couple of awesome places just off campus (Pizza 51, Picklemans, Winsteads).
