Not all that long ago, lunchtime on the Evansdale campus meant driving off-campus for food.
All that changed in 2016 with the opening of the marketplace at Evansdale Crossing at the Engineering PRT stop. Today, students at engineering, agricultural sciences, the Creative Arts Center, and other Evansdale locations have two food courts right on campus—a 1st floor marketplace and a 5th floor rooftop bar—and the options are fresh and healthy.
Hugh-Baby’s BBQ and Burger Shop
Try Hugh-Baby’s for hand-formed burgers, slow-smoked BBQ using Martin’s BBQ recipes, fresh-cut fries, and milkshakes that are the real deal.
Two Birds Chicken
Rotisserie and fried are the two birds on offer at this chicken shack. Fresh-made sides include cole slaw and mac & cheese.
A Southern-Mex taqueria: tacos, burritos, and other favorites made with tortillas from fresh-ground corn, slow-roasted meats, and signature salsas.
Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe
The first two locations in town proved the popularity of fresh Mediterranean here. Taziki’s serves up gyros and sandwiches of grilled chicken and sliced turkey with sides that include a Greek salad and fresh-cut fruit.
Panini Pete’s / Octane Coffee
Offerings at this rooftop café include homemade beignets, fresh-cut fries, and a muffaletta the critics rave about.
