They call the cafeteria "the original fast food" and that is accurate. The elder population that dominates the establishment is pretty much done with lunch by 11am, so by the time we show up, there's no line. Food is always fresh and tasty, and the portions are generous. Kids plate is more food for less money than you will find anywhere else.

The food makes my life easier... Service is always good. I enjoyed the charm of this place every visit.

The meat options were very good. The desserts were hit or miss. I had the chocolate walnut pie (one of my favorite desserts), and it was not good...too much corn starch in the recipe they used. Coffee leaves much to be desired. It was quick and easy to order. I loved the variety of vegetables and meats available. Overall a good value. Not fancy, but you can get a balanced meal on any meal plan- vegan, vegetarian, keto.

SO GOOD!!! Stopped here on the way home from a week long school trip with my daughter to Washington DC... After a week full of greasy fast food, this was the best thing ever! Food and staff are wonderful!

It was decent. Nothing too spectacular. Good place to go if you want "Homestyle" food.

Great food and you get to see what you are going to eat before you order it. Me and my wife ate for $15.05 plus a 2 dollar tip. Good cheap eating

The food here is very good. I got the pork roast, mashed potatoes, green beans. and soft roll. I was very satisfied with the portions and the food tasted great. The friendly staff were so much fun and very helpful. I definitely recommend this place.

Overall my experience has been good. Only other thing this particular time is that I was looked over while a Caucasian server took care of two other Caucasian male customers behind me. I waited and made eye contact with the server and told her what I needed. Wanted to share because I did feel some type of way. I wonder if anyone else had this experience here. Food was good as usual.

Nice selection of fruits, salads, meats, veggies, breads, and drinks. We had 5 people in our party. Seems like everyone got something different and everyone said it was good. Less than 10 dollars per person. Pretty good deal.

Honestly cafeterias aren't my thing, but the employees here are exceptionally nice. I don't know if it's an awesome place to work or they all just like each other or are customer service experts, but it's a good atmosphere for the customer as a result. The food is pretty good. The layer cake is soft like they use swan's down, so it's awesome. The crab cakes are more of a deviled type than Maryland, but still good. They have the usual greens, potatoes and creamed corn which aren't bad. The open cafeteria ambiance and whole ordering in the line while making several decisions under pressure is rough personally, but not something that can be helped for this type of place.

Great food so glad they has gone back to seasoning. Price is great and over all staff okay. But they need to let staff know eating from counter is a no no.

Well, I guess they were having an off day with some of the food items on the menu not all good or happy at my table. But it happens. Maybe I will have better luck next time.

Look forward to eat there every time I go to Durham or above in North Carolina. Would be solid gold money maker if he could locate to south park mall. In colonial heights off 95 in Va he would make big money nothing like it all thru Va .
