I got tired of looking up the menu on my laptop to figure out where I wanted to eat. It just seemed like something that I shouldn't have to do in 2018, and now nobody has to.

What it does

You can ask Alexa about the overall menu for a campus dining location or for just a single station at a specific location.

Phrases: what does {dining_hall} have on the menu today what is {dining_hall} serving today

what's at the {station} bar at {dining_hall} what's on the {station} bar at {dining_hall} what does the {station} at {dining_hall} have today what's at the {station} at {dining_hall} what's on the {station} at {dining_hall}

Stations at Core: Deli Dessert Entree Station Grill Lite-sy Corner Mongolian Grill Pasta Pizza Salad Soup

Stations at Schilletter: Fresh Focus Deli Grill Pizza Salad Bar Dessert Mongolian Saute Soup Taste of Home Vegetarian
