The Southern Eagle Dining Facility features a variety of destination dining locations providing customers access to an expanded variety of healthy food options that also include plant-based, vegetarian and vegan selections at many stations. Features include a “rotating restaurant” station that will open with Bento®, Peking Plate®, and Wholly Habaneros®, and mainstays will also feature SubConnection®, Slice of Life® pizza, and N’Rich Grill®. The very popular and convenient grab & go Simply to Go® concept has been incorporated throughout the serving line and around point-of-sale systems for quick, customer convenience.

The Afterburner Kiosk, located at the former flight kitchen, features convenient grab & go items just adjacent to the flight line operations area. Each day will feature hot entrees, way more than a typical flight kitchen — picture a quick, convenient dining kiosk for those working on or near the flight line.

I am a shift worker and cannot make it to the DFAC during operating hours. Can I receive BAS?
Please contact your Shirt and ESM monitor to verify your missed meals and work hours. They will determine if you should receive BAS in lieu of government meals.

I am a vegan/vegetarian. What will be available for me?
Food 2.0 offers a variety of menu options that cater to a diverse crowd.

Is the DFAC the only location ESM members can eat?
No. Food 2.0 offers Campus Style dining, which means ESM members (formerly known as card holders) can go to the Compass Café at Outdoor Recreation and the 10-Pin Café at Phantom Lanes bowling center for meals, with some limitations to cost. There will be a limit of $12 for lunch/dinner and $6 for breakfast when using the other eating establishments. If meals cost more than what is allotted, members must pay the rest out of pocket.
