An article I wrote The Eagle's Eye, a UMC student newsletter.

The Evergreen Grill started as an idea from Residential Life and became reality when the establishment opened up for business in the new residence hall.  The new food venue is entirely run by student employees, with 3 student managers and 7 workers total.  The grill bears similarities to the Eagle’s Nest in the Sahlstrom Conference Center but their differences result in the two venues complementing each other well.  While the Eagle’s Nest is open during the day so students can grab a bite between classes, the Evergreen Grill is open at night and seems to be geared towards on-campus students.  As the name implies, the Evergreen Grill also offers more grill items than the Eagle’s Nest so students can have a full supper in their dorm.
The most popular items at the Evergreen Grill are burgers and chicken tenders, which philly cheese steaks starting to increase in popularity as well.  The grill also serves appetizers such as mozzarella sticks, as well as soup and chili.  For the Sunday crowd, specials on big pizzas and wings will be starting soon.  The food at the Evergreen Grill attracts a wide range of people, including plenty of upperclassmen.  “We’re starting to get lots of regulars that come get supper here every night,” student manager Ryan Ellingson said.  Students can purchase their items with Eagle Bucks or cash.  Both the Evergreen Grill and the Eagle’s Nest will also be getting credit card machines soon.
Since the opening of the grill just under a month ago, it has seen steady business.  “It’s gotten busier since we lowered our prices about 2 weeks ago,” Ellingson stated.  This price decrease is demonstrated by the fact that with the same amount students previously would have spent on just one hamburger alone, they can now get a hamburger combo which also includes fries and a drink.  A ¼ lb hamburger costs just $2.69, with a combo being $4.75.  With these prices, the Evergreen Grill tends to stay busy throughout the night, even until closing at midnight.
