We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. From our general manager to our front line servers, we work carefully to address food allergies, celiac diets, or other special dietary needs.
Please visit https://www.ut.edu/academics/academic-support/academic-excellence-programs/student-disability-services to fill out the Accommodation Request Form if you have special dietary needs. Once the form has been completed, one of our dining managers will reach out to you to set up a one-on-one meeting.
