Vol State is surrounded by a few choice food places, but there is only one choice actually on campus and that's the Vol State Grill, run by First Choice Foods. This year caffeine fans and Asian food lovers will have something to cheer about. This fall semester the Grill will introduce a barista, serving iced coffees, frappes, lattes and smoothies made with real fruit. The grill is also introducing “A Taste of Asian,” where individuals will be able to pick their choice of veggies, sauces, rice and noodles from the bar and then have it grilled up with meat of their liking.
“We have one of the biggest salad bars in Gallatin, said Paul Fields. There is also a hot bar where most of the food is made from scratch, including the soups.
If you're ready for dessert, soft serve ice cream is also available. Feel free to mix things up with candy toppings including Oreos, Butterfingers, and Heath Toffee Bars.
The grill is open Monday through Friday, offering breakfast and lunch. If you think you are familiar with the Grill, there have been a few changes to its appearance. The chalk board has been replaced by a digital board showcasing the menu and new signs have been added.
First Choice Foods also runs the vending machines. They are working on a Facebook page as well as an online menu that should be posted soon. If you don’t want to wait for your food to cook, place an order in advance via email or text to email@example.com. You can also place an order ahead of time and let them know what time you plan to pick it up.
