    I love eating at Mean Greens cafe! You can get food as healthy or as sugary-fatty-deep fried as you want to eat here. They have an ice cream station with flavors that change every week, a “veganini” grilled sandwich bar, and even doughnuts once in a blue moon. There’s vegan options at all the other cafeterias, including at Kerr hall on the weekends. They have ice cream there, too! I don’t even live on campus, but I got a meal plan. It’s worth it- I wouldn’t have the time to make the quality of vegan food they have on campus even if I could afford it. The availability of vegan options here actually gotten me to participate in campus life activities more- there is *always* a vegan option whenever there’s food based events, such as the midnight breakfast during finals week, or the homecoming cookout. They even display a copy of PETA’s report card on the salad bar at mean greens cafe.

    UNT’s Mean Greens all-Vegan buffet dining hall always has fabulous, delicious variety, and the best part is how it’s also open to the public, so it’s common for Vegan meetup groups to come here too. My Vegan family and I come here from Gainesville, TX (30 minutes away) even though I graduated from TWU, on about a once a week to two weeks basis. Children under 2 are free. It’s ~$8 per adult. This is our favorite place to eat, and with a great vibe, from the music to the students. The staff are always personable, friendly, and helpful. Chef Wanda White took the time to get to know us here, and so did the new manager Carla Trujillo (Wanda is now touring and training chefs at hospitals and schools all across the nation!).

    It’s amazing! There are quite a few vegan restaurants or ones that have vegan options in Denton but Mean Greens is the best and closest to campus. At under $8 you can’t beat the price. Love it.

  • diana

    that pizza looks delicious!

  • Naomi Ruiz

    I love maple cafeteria! I love them for their grilled pb & j’s with freshly grounded pb and their array of cooked and raw all vegan options. I also love that UNT has added an extra vegan section on Mondays at bruce cafeteria instead of just a salad area.

  • Robin Spicer

    Mean Green Flavor is amazing!!

  • Alison Brushaber

    UNT has put an effort into developing new recipe additions. I don’t know who is creating the new stuff but it is awesome!

  • Samra Bufkins

    Awesome food. I’ll admit I’m an omnivore who leans toward vegetarian eating at least 5 days a week. The Mean Greens dining hall is one of the best eating places ever–not just vegan, any kind of food. Everything is fresh, the variety is awesome, and the quality is great.

  • Sophia Shah

    Fantastic place that shares compassion and healthy options. Go Mean Green!

  • Lindsey

    Our vegan cafeteria is so tasty. I especially love the soups.

  • Kiersten

    I love Mean Greens in Maple Hall, seriously, i don’t know what i would do without it.

  • Susan Whitmer

    I’m macrobiotic and I find the Mean Greens cafeteria at UNT choice of grains greens and beans to be most delicious. I’m a simple cook so the vegan lasagnas and casseroles are a welcome addition to my diet.

  • Dan Fenlon

  • Karthik

    I love it here! 🙂

  • Alicia

    Mean Greens has amazing food. The flavor of every dish I’ve had has been a masterpiece. I had a rice crispy treat that was the best I’ve ever had, vegan or not! So gooey and rich! Some of my favorite things about the dining hall are that they are open to the public, are super cheap (under $8 for all-you-can-eat), and the wall decor is all pro-vegan, inspirational, and beautiful. My only complaint is that they are closed on weekends and breaks!

  • Ashley Gillen

    UNT has tons of great vegetarian and vegan options all over campus. The entire university seeks to be sustainable and healthy and they don’t dissapoint. From california rolls at the sushi bar, to extensive salad bars, veggie burgers, and kush roti international cuisine, there’s never a reason for a vegan to go hungry. Then there’s an entire vegan dining hall, how convenient is that!? Also great is that there are tons of vegans and vegetarians at the school so even the places like taco bell and boar’s head are used to making non-vegan options vegan or vegetarian!

  • Alana

    mean greens all vegan dinning hall 100%

  • Alicia Townsend

    UNT’s all-vegan Mean Greens dining hall takes healthy vegan eating to unbelievable greatness. No picture can do justice to this food, as the flavors are brilliantly bold. Also, the best rice crispy treat I’ve ever had… vegan or not! So soft and gooey!

  • Ken Botts

    So lucky to have this awesome vegan cafeteria on our campus
