This fall is my first semester at UT Dallas and one of the many great factors that attracted me to the university is all the wonderful dining options we have to offer on campus. There is a great variety of locations all across campus, all of which are compatible with school’s different meal plans. Two of my favorite areas that house great dining selections are the Comet Café and the Food Court, both of which are located in the Student Union Building.
The Comet Café has a Subway, Ben & Jerry’s and Create. At Subway, deli meat subs make for a great alternative if you’re looking for something lighter than fried or greasy foods. Create is a new “build your own” salad or spud bar that provides a surprising amount of different toppings and condiments and is exclusively at UT Dallas. Create is my personal favorite because I love sweet potatoes! Ben & Jerry’s is the place to go if you’re looking for a sweet treat to escape the Texas heat. Ben & Jerry’s offers some of their unique flavors, such as Cherry Garcia! YUM!
The Food Court is new this year to UT Dallas and is home to Chick-Fil-A (Express), Moe’s, 2-Mato and Panda Express. Chick-Fil-A (Express) means that they do not offer every single menu of chicken entrée favorites that you would find off campus, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less delicious. Moe’s Southwest Grill serves made-to-order burritos, quesadillas, nachos and wraps. 2-Mato is our pizza bar where they’re cooking up all your cheesy favorites from Meat Lover’s to Mushroom pizzas. Panda Express is bringing out the bowls of fried rice mixed with your choice of Chinese entrees, such as my favorite, Orange Chicken. No matter what your preference is here at UT Dallas, we have several ways to keep your bellies and your brains fueled!
