Welcome to UNT 101, a weekly series to prepare you to hit the ground running for your new life at UNT. We’ve interviewed Eagle Ambassadors (read: UNT aficionados) about everything from the best places to study to the best music venues in town. Let their answers be your guide to joining the Mean Green family.
Between our dining halls and retail options, there’s no shortage of choices when it comes to grabbing a bite to eat on campus. Here are some of the Ambassadors’ favorites:
The cafeteria at West Hall just reopened as Kitchen West, the first university cafeteria in Texas completely free of the “Big 8” food allergens. While foods containing allergens will continue to be clearly marked in all of UNT’s dining halls, Kitchen West will make dining effortless for those affected by the most common food allergies. The food may be allergen-free, but it lacks nothing in flavor!
The Campus Chat
Located on the second floor of the Union, the Campus Chat provides a variety of foods from fire roasted pizza to fresh sushi. Due to its central location and mouthwatering options like Boar’s Head and Sauté, when you need to grab a satisfying meal between classes, there’s no better place to stop.
If you’re in the mood for great pizza, fresh burgers and school spirit, Champs Cafeteria is the perfect place to go. Located at Victory Hall next to Apogee Stadium, this dining hall offers a great selection of entrees, grilled specials and desserts.
Offering a fully vegan menu that’s full of flavor, Mean Greens is located at Maple Hall. Whether you’re adhering to a strictly vegan diet or just looking for a healthier option that won’t let your taste buds down, this place never disappoints.
Located between the General Academic Building and Sycamore Hall, this is the perfect place to grab a grilled cheese sandwich, something to drink, a side or a dessert to munch on before class.
