Stern Dining

A Stanford student enjoys a Guest Chef event at Stern Dining. Stern Logo

Located in the center of the Stern residential complex and serving students from Burbank, Donner, Larkin, Sally Ride, Twain, and Casa Zapata (the Chicano theme house), Stern Dining is heavily influenced by the vibrant community that surrounds it. From the daily salsa bar to the rotating Latin American specials, the taste of the food is matched only by the beauty of the murals adorning the walls of the dining rooms.
