My son isn't really impressed by his school's offerings, but I remember mine had some pretty good food. My favorite thing to order was fries w/ gravy. LOVED it.

Back in the day, it was pretty awful. I can't remember a favorite, but I'll never forget the unsmiling cafeteria worker, donning a shower cap, with an ice cream scoop in her hand asking me if I wanted mashed potatoes -- the first time I'd ever seen an ice cream scoop used for that purpose -- LOL!

We had what would be considered by some to be a heart attack grilled cheese sandwich. Thick layers of butter on two slices of white bread. Put one slice on the skillet butter side down, slice of welfare cheese (you know, the kind you need a chain saw to cut), slice of white bread, another slice of cheese, and the third slice with the butter side up. There was so much butter on that bread that the crust was rock hard but the center was gooey soft. We loved it. Sometimes they'd throw chicken and sausage jambalaya on the line. That was pretty good too.

The school I went to California had good Haystacks (That's when you put fritos on a plate and then then you layer it with beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, salsa, sour cream- sorta like a tostada)

I haven't ate school lunch since Pre-K/Kindergarten (when my Grandmother made it).

The food in my school smells good sometimes though, I like the smell of the Little Deep Dish Pizzas with Mozzarella Sticks. They also serve Tacos with ketchup which is disgusting. My middle school had garlic knots.

I liked french fries, most of the rest of their stuff was not fit for a dog.
