Tech Dining Hall No. 2 in the Country

My goodness, who'da thunk it: Virginia Tech is No. 2 in the country in campus food and James Madison is fourth. We knew Tech had a pretty good hospitality school and that its annual feeds on the lawn are exquisite, but that doesn't always translate to the dining hall.

No. 1 in the poll is Bowdoin College in Maine, a tiny school most have never heard of. The one glaring omission is Roanoke College and maybe the football training table at Vanderbilt. Here's the whole story.

Here's some of what the review of Tech says:

"They serve ribeye and whole lobster daily—and no, we’re not talking about the fancy restaurant downtown. In addition to the chop house options in Virginia Tech’s West End Market, VT students can find gourmet pizza cooked in wood-fired ovens at its Italian restaurant, or eat signature burgers while watching big screen projection TVs in its sports lounge."
