Texas Wesleyan students have a new campus eatery to look forward to this semester. Opening Aug. 18, West Express Eatery, located in the north side of the Baker Building, will feature two dining concepts served up fresh and made-to-order.

“We are very excited to debut the West Express Eatery and are certain the fresh concepts, convenient location and to-go options will be a big hit with students, faculty and staff,” Pati Alexander, vice president of enrollment and student services, said. “Although it is unfortunate that the Dora’s Dining Hall renovation project is delayed, we couldn’t be more pleased with the dining selections available.”

In addition to the new West Express Eatery, a full-service dining location, named The Sub, will be located in the Brown Lupton Campus Center.

The new eatery features two dining concepts, along with grab-and-go Caesar, southwest and house salads, beverages and dessert. 

  • A Mexican grill will offer authentic chicken, beef, pork or veggie tacos and burritos with a choice of black or pinto beans, cilantro lime rice, fresh made salsa and all the toppings. 
  • The artisan pizza restaurant allows guests to create their own specialty pizza with their choice of chicken, sausage, pepperoni, veggie and cheese toppings.

Monday – Thursday: 11 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Friday: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

In addition to The Sub and West Express Eatery, local vendors such as Central Market and Campesino’s will provide food trucks on campus and Subway has reopened on Rosedale.

“We are committed to creating a positive dining experience for our students while the Dora’s project is underway,” Alexander said.
