On the weekends, try our "Made to Order Skillets" with your choice of ingredients, such as onions, green peppers, mushrooms, ham, sausage, cheese, eggs and potatoes, grilled to perfection while you wait. 

Also, Thomas is the only Dining Center that offers late night service until 1:00am. Enjoy this option Sunday – Thursday and get some late night pizza with your friends!

Thomas Dining Center will remain open for certain holidays and special weekends - watch for consolidation signs with special hours posted in the dining centers.
