Students and faculty react to restaurant openings

At long last, Blue Blob’s Diner and All for Subs served the majority of their menus at their soft opening last Friday after hosting a tasting menu on last Thursday. The restaurants will have their grand opening after they finalize minor graphics, custom tables and other small details. Each restaurant is fully permitted.  

The Text2Chat program that was implemented in Hoff Dining Commons earlier this semester is now available for both new restaurants as well as both Victory Perk locations and Fresh Xpress in the Conaton Learning Commons. Students can text their comments on Xavier’s food options to (812) 487-1991.

The following are Xavier community member’s reactions to their meals from the new restaurants:

“The thing I’m most excited for this place is after a nice long day at work and studying I hit this place at, like, midnight, get a nice chicken sandwich or a burger and fries. Should be a good time.”

“I absolutely loved the pancakes. I am pretty scared that I’m going to lose all my dining dollars to this place now, but I absolutely loved them. I think they’re great, and it’s a good price.”
