What Students Are Saying

4.19 Average Rating
The dining hall staff at the main cafeteria, otherwise known as the Pit, are extremely friendly and the food is pretty good as far as cafeteria food goes. Outside of the main Pit, there is a nicer, upgraded New Pit nearer to the upperclassmen dorms. The Magnolia Room offers really delicious meals for lunch, that's the best food on campus. There are two coffee shops, a Starbucks in the library and an independent one called Campus Grounds. One can use Old Gold Swipes at the campus restaurant Shorty's, Zicks (pizza place), a Subway, Moes, Chick Fil A, Boars Head (hamburgers and sandwiches), a really great salad place, Einsteins Bagels, and a fancy bistro place.

The cafeteria is called the Pit and the food is great but it gets really repetitive. The only thing I suggest is using Food Dollars wisely because they go surprisingly fast. Share your swipes if you have extra. It really just helps out your friends a lot, especially if they are trying to save money for other things. The fast food places are good but make sure you order healthily. It is VERY easy to gain a few while on campus.

Wake Forest does it's best to offer gourmet foods with endless options. Take advantage! And they are constantly changing the meal plan in efforts to make each student just a little more comfortable.
Markecia from Charlotte, NC
The food at Wake is pretty good! There are many places to grab a snack on the go or to sit down and enjoy a real meal. With the Pit right in the middle of everything, it is quick and easy!
Hannah from NC
The 'Pit' (the dining hall) offers a wide variety of food. There is also another food court with a ton of options, a on campus restaurant, and a 24 hour Subway. There are also a couple of Sundrys that offer snacks and such.
