Buffalo Mash

by Mike Bock

Ever since I was a freshman, I have been obsessed with D-hall.

Buffalo Mash is hands-down my favorite food offered at JMU. This combination of chicken, mashed potatoes, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and a little bit of celery, all thrown together in a bowl, is so delicious that it could be considered proof that God loves us. And I’m not the only one who thinks Buffalo Mash is great— dozens of people I’ve talked to agree that Mash is among the best of JMU’s on-campus food. You’d think that, if JMU Dining has created a wildly popular dish, they’d want to serve it all the time… right?

Nope. D-hall only serves Buffalo Mash a few times per month, and usually only at weird times like Monday afternoons. I’m sure that they have a good reason for doing so, but I can’t help but think that myself and others would have a higher opinion of JMU Dining were to serve our favorite foods more often.

Fortunately, there’s something we can do about it. Next time you go to D-Hall, write on a comment card that you’d like to see Buffalo Mash (or whatever your favorite dish is) on the menu more. With enough cards, we can make a difference!

One thought on “Buffalo Mash”

  1. The reason they don’t serve it more often may be the 1,400 mg of sodium PER SERVING in the dish. Just a thought.
