The Michelin stars of campus dining halls

By Aminah Koshul

Ike: It has the most variety, but it gets crowded pretty fast around 5 p.m., so show up super early or super late to avoid the rush. A bonus tip: For the milkshake to be good, it has to have the perfect ice cream-to-oreo ratio. Just saying.

Allen: This dining hall has the most vegetarian options and plenty of room for seating.

FAR: Breakfast for dinner on Tuesday nights is probably this dining hall’s best meal of the week.

PAR: Always a good option when you’ve missed regular dinner hours and feel hungry for “late night.”AG

    Busey: By far the smallest dining hall, but lunch on Fridays gets pretty busy because of their specialty pasta station.AG

    ISR: I’m not a big fan of the food, but their late night is pretty convenient.
