Grabbing something to eat at Illinois State is almost as easy as heading to the kitchen at home.

Our two conveniently located dining centers offer a wide variety of options, including those for vegans, vegetarians, and students with other dietary needs. You can grab breakfast before class, stop in for a late-night snack, or anything in between.

Like most students, senior marketing major Nick Bednarek has his favorite—the Mongolian grill, a create-your-own stir fry.

“I love the dining centers,” Bednarek said. “There’s always something for whatever I’m in the mood for. There’s pizza. There’s pasta. There’s salad. There’s cereal all day.”

Beyond the dining centers, there are also several on-campus restaurants, including McAlister’s Deli, Pizza Hut, Burger King, and Einstein Bros. Bagels.
