AUM Dining Options

The Egg Shoppe student eating pizza

The Egg Shoppe is inspired by the American continental breakfast traditions. Traditions that we all have in our culture, that fresh and local food where each detail evokes a sense of story, place and delight in a welcoming, relaxed setting. 

Burger 334

Millennials and Generation Z are nostalgic groups that take interest in the trends of the past, often looking to bring them back with a modern twist. Burger 334 capitalized on this insight aesthetics wise, blending inspiration from classic, retro diners with clean and modern design elements. Additionally, it was important to incorporate elements unique to UM and capitalize on the unrelenting pride students have towards the U.  

Tu Taco

Think of a hot rod food truck and you have Tu Taco. The concept brings the street indoors with a simple soft taco that pays homage to Tex-Mex and Cali influences. The proteins and sauces are varied and creative yet simple. Add locally sourced tortillas and magnify the sauce flavors that are popular for your region. Tu Taco is versatile, drive inside food from the outside experience.


Every campus needs a great BBQ shop and Smoked is just that!  With house smoked meat rotating each day, cool sides students are able to customize their meals creating mouthwatering combinations reminiscent of home BBQ’s.

BUILD Pizza by Design

BUILD is a fast, fresh and flavorful quick-serve concept base​​​d on traditional Neapolitan style pizza. This concept, available as both add-on or stand-alone, features great scratch-made dough, garden-fresh local produce, succulent sauces, traditional cheeses and high-quality proteins.​


The Meat-and-Three is a proud Southern tradition and we offer great options that rotate daily!
