New dining options come to UA Little Rock

What's happening at the Trojan Cafe'.

UA Little Rock students and employees can look forward to several new dining options available this fall at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. 

A new restaurant, Tres Habaneros, will replace Taco Bell in Donaghey Student Center. Tres Habaneros is a Tex-Mex style restaurant. The restaurant will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Some of the menu items include tacos, burritos, rice bowls, taco salads, quesadillas, house made nachos, and churros.

Another addition to campus dining will be W.O.W. Café American Grill and Wingery, which will replace Trojan Grill in University Commons. W.O.W. Café is a New Orleans-style restaurant that will serve menu items like fresh chicken wings, burgers, veggie burgers, lettuce wraps, chicken sandwiches wraps, chicken tenders, French fries, sweet potato fries, and red beans and rice.

The restaurant will open for its first day on Sunday, Aug. 19, from 6-10 p.m. The restaurant’s regular hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, and 6-10 p.m. Sunday.

In addition to the new restaurants, the Trojan Café (formerly Diamond Café) and the Trojan Bistro in the Donaghey Student Center are receiving facelifts. Trojan Café’s renovation features include new furnishings, revamped menu options, and an All-You-Care-To-Eat buffet. The expanded menu includes a refreshed serving area, and more Mindful, Simple Servings, Vegetarian, and Vegan options. Prices for breakfast ($4.85), lunch ($7.95), and dinner ($8.95) at Trojan Café are the same as last year.

UA Little Rock Dining Services has transitioned the Trojan Café into a traditional resident dining format in order to expand dining programs at the Trojan Café. While the format of the Trojan Café has changed, seating will be doubled in the Donaghey Student Center retail dining area. Additionally, plans for a new second-floor student lounge in the Donaghey Student Center are underway.

Students with meal plans have the option to use meal swipe in retail dining for any meal of the day. Additionally, a meal swipe exchange can be used at four on-campus restaurants: Tres Habaneros, Trojan Bistro, Sub Connection, and WOW Café. There are four menu options to choose from for each location.

Swipe To Go is an option for students who want to take their Trojan Café meal to go. A one-time fee gives students a reusable green container to use for the semester. When returning to Trojan Café, students can exchange their used container for a clean and sanitized container.

We Proudly Brew (Starbucks) will no longer be located inside of Donaghey Student Center and has been temporarily moved to the Business Brew location inside of the Reynolds Business Center.
