The long anticipated hamburger spot, Burger831, finally opened on the California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus on Oct. 18. At the start of the Fall semester, after the return of on-campus activity, dining options around the campus were extremely limited due to hiring issues.
Places like Burger831 and Bok Choy couldn’t operate without a proper amount of staff, and previously well-known dining options such as Wow Cafe, Monte’s and Otter Express remain closed. This left students and faculty with limited options, as far as what there was to eat or what a meal plan would cover.
Burger831 followed shortly after the opening of the Chinese cuisine spot, Bok Choy, at the start of October. So far, students have taken quite a liking to the new food and have given some positive feedback. Students can use their Otter bucks or dining dollars at Burger831, or use a meal exchange from their meal plan for a burger, fries and soft drink.
