Which colleges have the best food, best cafeterias?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch can recall some good times eating at the college cafeteria.

From the unlimited double-cheeseburgers to the fresh scooped chocolate milkshakes (salad bar be damned!), the all-you-can-eat cafeteria was well worth the daily fee that the 21-meals a week program required.

Oh, there were some naysayers.  Some thought that they could eat better in their dorm room for $5 a day, cooking only with a hot pot and a down-the-hall microwave.  An in-room kitchenette?  A shared refrigerator?  These would be luxuries that were not available at the time.

Of course, today is different, and students are picking their colleges for their food as much as they are for their education.
