Concept Mix at the Lot

The Lot is much more than a temporary dining site with a handful of basic food stations. Rather, the food court is a careful blend of eight high-impact branded concepts that are designed not only to make the venue an acceptable placeholder while the new Ronald Tutor Campus Center is built, but also a dining destination that drives business.

The concepts in the Lot are…

Wolfgang Puck Express

A fast-causal outpost featuring salads, sandwiches, pizzas and more from the international restaurant group.

Baja Fresh

A Mexican food chain featuring all-fresh, traditional fire-grilled Mexican favorites such as burritos, tacos, and salads.


A San Diego-based sub shop concept offering healthy sandwiches made with fresh, California produce and ingredients.

ZAO Noodle Bar

Founded in Northern California, this small chain features new takes on Asian street food and a menu that includes salads, noodle and rice dishes and vegetarian options.

Carl's Jr.

The noted quick-service American chain known for its charbroiled burgers and French fries.

Red Mango

South Korea's largest purveyor of authentic, natural frozen yogurt markets its offerings in original and green tea flavors, serving them with toppings such as fresh fruit and granola.


USC's venerable pub has a temporary new home at The Lot, offering students and alumni a festive gathering place to watch USC games and socialize with colleagues and peers.


This licensed outlet of the Seattle chain offers Starbucks coffees, including favorites such as lattes, cappuccinos, and more.
