I liked those strange glued together by the rubber cheese foil wrapped burgers.

Now that I have learned from this thread that they put bulgur in the burgers (say that 3 times fast) I know why they tasted so different.

I seem to recall the pizza was pretty good and we had some kind of goulash(it had spaghetti noodles instead of elbow macaroni)that tasted a whole lot better than it looked.
I got smart my senior year and got a pass so I could go eat real food at lunch

I was fortunate that in my high school we had 2 cafeterias: A regular one and a senior cafeteria.
Seniors could eat at either, but underclassman were banned from the senior one. We also had a Dominoes Pizza line, a 'bakery' (sold cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and also icee type frozen drinks) as well as a sub line. There was also a little kiosk that sold chips, hot pretzels, and little snacks like that.

My favorite food was the taco salads (every Tuesday and Thursday in the 'regular cafeteria'). If I didn't eat that, I always got a sub. Usually roast beef, swiss, lettuce, and tomatoes. The best!

Oh, and an elementary favorite: the corn. It was always so buttery!

The square pizza! And it had to be a middle slice with no crust. lol! Otherwise, Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and corn were a winner with me.

At my high school, they made this really fantastic spaghetti. I wish I could find the recipe. The person whose recipe the school used is most likely deceased.

They also had these really good hamburgers.

Pizza! The pepperoni floated in puddles of grease like lilypads in a pond, but we loved it.

for school cafeteria lunches--

the taquitas were good and the burritos, I really liked the hamburgers too.

I dont like cake but the cake they served in school was good, it had pink icing and when I went to jail for a week they served the same cake in there. I thought the jail food was actually kinda good, no different than school food.

Heck are you kidding, I loved school food. Way back in the day, my elementary school offered 'seconds' to the students if there was anything left because they didnt want to have to reheat it later.
And in high school, 20c bought my main course, 10c got dessert and 5c was milk money. But during my sr year everything went up 5c.
