    The Cafeteria at Merced College is spectacular, they offer a wide variety of hot food they make fresh every day as well as salads and sandwiches, lots of coffee, and enough chips to fill that junk food need.

    At the Los Banos campus, there is no cafeteria. Just the local taco truck that sells on the campus sometimes and a lounge with vending machines with super small snacks.

    The cafeteria food is alright. There are some good dishes but they're pretty expensive. The cafeteria is not that big and is usually crowded. Some rooms are louder than others which makes eating there not so fun or relaxing.

    Just ok. A bit too expensive. Cheaper just to go off campus for better food.

    The food is great and the prices aren't too expensive. The cafeteria is a popular place so expect some people to be there usually all throughout the day.
