THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.” (Virginia Woolf) Ever since the school year began in late August, SAGE Dining Services has been making breakfast and lunch every day for Jesuit students and faculty. I was able to sit down and talk to the Executive Chef, Ryan Messina, and the SAGE Food Service...
**In the land of Dallas where meat lies One Rib to rule them all, One Rib to satisfy them One Rib to bring them all and the Lodge fill them.** Now, anyone from a hungry office worker in downtown Dallas, to a wandering hipster in Deep Ellum, or to the barbecue enthusiast (basically anyone) who enjoys Dallas food knows or needs to...
As we approach the old, stone building, we see the immense line of patrons all eagerly waiting to be admitted inside. Many of them have been waiting since 5:00 am, just to be the first ones in line. We wait for several hours, our anticipation building, before finally seeing the line start to shift forward. Once closer, we detect...

It's because the printed word- definitive, exacting, permanent- is in many ways antithetical to the process of cooking barbecue, which is, for lack of a better word, loosey-goosey. - Aaron Franklin,...
The vibrant Open sign quite literally never turns off, a beacon of consistency and reliability in a tumultuous world. As you park and approach the mundane brown building, the delicious smell of waffles hits you. You’ve arrived at Waffle House. Waffle House is one of the greatest, if not the greatest dining establishment for a multitude of reasons, but there...
It's the beginning of 4th-period lunch and many hungry students wait to be given permission to get food. Before the students, however, the faculty is allowed to fill their plates. The food served to them is a product of what we all know as SAGE Dining Services. The faculty of Jesuit has been eating from SAGE for a whole...
