    Bluffton University's main cafeteria is called The Commons which has many different food options. There is are two grills, a station that offers pasta and pizza, the mainline, the deli, an ice cream machine, salad bar and a variety of options for drinks like pop, milk, coffee and juice. The Commons also has the option of To Go Lunches for days when you want to eat in your dorm and do work or when you don't have much time in between classes. There is also Bob's place which is open after The Commons is closed and is open until 11pm. They have a variety of options but a favorite is their milkshakes. During the week there is meal exchange at bobs where you can use a meal swipe. Otherwise you would use your Beaver Bucks. The quantity of your Beaver Bucks depends on your meal plan.

    Food improves year from year, but salad and grilled chicken is always a safe bet. A must try is chicken tortilla soup. And we have a themed lunch or dinner every month that is truly exciting!

    Although it gets old, as any college food does, there really is a good variety of options during any meal. After a while you will learn how to get creative and find food that you really like.

    The food is better than some places but it's still college and eating the same things all the time is tiring.

    The food is great! There are many different choices and the staff mixes up the options from day to day so that there is never a meal that is overly exerted on the menu. Also, I have never seen so many beverage choices!
