Dining dollars are awesome, as awesome as a university meal plan can be. You can't use them off campus, but on campus there are a bunch of places. Quick Zone, which is basically a little overpriced drugstore, Taco Bell, Sub Connection at the Pete and in the Union, a salad place at both as well, a kitchen with changing meals (favorite is General Tso Chicken Tuesday!) in the union, a Mcdonalds-esque place in the Union, a Burger King at the Pete, Einstein Bagel Brothers in Benedum and Posvar, and the Chic-fil-a, sandwich place, and kitchen in the ground floor of the cathedral!

All students living in residence halls are required to get a meal plan. Each of the plans varies in the amount of meal blocks (a set dollar amount used to purchase meals) and dining dollars (money to supplement the meal blocks) it has. Meal plans are accessible through student ID card at dining halls and food carts. More meal blocks are added with each larger plan. If you don't use up all of your meal blocks each week, they will go to waste.
There are a number of eateries located across Pitt's campus, each set in a different style. Market Central and the Schenley Cafe in the Union are usually the busiest and have a number of different dining options. The all-you-care-to-eat cafeterias boast more variety than any of the other eateries, though students say that the food still gets old quickly. Overall, many students are satisfied with the quality and availability of Pitt's dining services. However, meal plans can get costly. Also, the sporadic hours and lack of a 24-hour dining option means you'll find yourself in Oakland's local restaurants on many nights and weekends. Meal plans do not work at any local restaurants but Panther Funds do, which is money loaded onto your ID card, separate from any meal plan cost, that works like a debit card.
