My husband and I went to MCL in March. No a long line to stand in to get your food. Got are food and it looked good. Got to the table and were eating our food. No taste at all. Everything was flat. Added salt and pepper to it and it did help some. The pecan pie was very good.... More

We eat at the MCL Cafeteria in the Muncie Mall. They have a wide variety of foods from salads, dessers, meats, vegetables, and baked goods. I especially like their turkey dinner, chicken and noodles, breaded tenderloin. Love the peach pie, tomato, onion, and cucumber salad, tossed salad. Wonderful hot rolls are not to be missed. Should give it a try.

Over the past couple months have revisited this MCL and the food prep has definitely improved. I've had different dishes and all were delicious. Good job MCL.

I used to eat here with my grandmother and parents while growing up. Then later with my children. While back in town for a wedding, my parents, children, husband and I decided to stop in to eat. We all enjoyed our meal together and the memories it brought back.

We have been to MCL a few times in the past with no issues but what has happened??? We went for the "all you can eat"catfish and wow, were we disappointed! Apparently they want to keep it a secret because it was not noted anywhere in the restaurant. We now can see why.. Greatly undercooked ...after complaining they brought out... More

I wrote a review three years ago about this place and while the food has largely remained constant, the prices have skyrocketed. For what I paid for two dinners last night, I could have gone to most of the other chains and had a sit down service with waiters and maybe even a beer or two. More than $28 for... More

I know a bunch of people who work here. Most are fine and nice though def not happy with their jobs, I usually get good service though the food is average at best. But I fond a Twitter account for one of the cooks who said she thought blood running down her arm was beet juice. Who thinks blood is... More

My husband and I went to lunch at Muncie MCL a couple weeks ago. We usually go at least once a week because we like the down home foods. However, this time it was a big disappointment! As we were starting with our meat selections we jumped back as a half inch long roach ran between the meat dishes. The... More

This is 3rd time eating here. 1st time food was ruined with excessive salt. 2nd time all was ok. This time I had liver and onions. It was like eating my leather belt. Other customers were also complaining. The waiter offered to replace it with something else but I don't like to waste food. I won't be going back. My... More

Having frequented a great MCL in another part of Indiana, I was excited to find this cafeteria. I really looked forward to eating here, & I was pleased with my experience. The veggies were fresh, hot and tasty. Our fish was hot, & tasty. The servers were quality people, & I was moved to tip them. I learned that we... More
