If you haven’t tried Lenoir Dining at Ole Miss yet, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Operated by the University of Mississippi hospitality students, this 40-seat teaching laboratory invites students and nonstudents to enjoy restaurant-quality lunches for a fraction of the price you’d pay for a meal on the Square.
Open for lunch Tuesday through Thursday, students, faculty and staff pay $7 while non-university customers pay $10 (all prices include tax).
For this unbelievably low price, you receive a choice of beverage, freshly baked bread of the day, soup or salad, entrée with side, and dessert. Throughout the semester, students rotate through various positions in the restaurant and patrons help evaluate their progress via comment cards on each table.
The menu’s theme changes every week with highlights from this week’s Mexican menu, including chicken tortilla soup, grilled beef fajitas and Mexican rice pudding.
Reservations are available online at www.LenoirDining.com, which also helps students handle reservation requests. Lenoir Dining is located inside the Department of Nutrition and Hospitality Management at 108 Lenoir Hall.
If you are not an existing student with a parking pass, avoid a ticket and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to secure a daily/visitor pass.
