The Navy Hospital Mess Hall in Guantanamo Bay was always very good! The Mess Hall on Marine Hill was great too. If you sat outside you'd always be joined by huge iguanas looking for scraps.

Whatever the Airforce base in Quatar is called, they had pretty good chow, especialy after a month at sea. On ship the best chow i ever had was on the USNS Walter S Diehl. USNS ships have great chow, when they could the captain would slow the ship and the cooks would tail a line and we'd have fresh fish

It wasn't the chow hall, but the bacon cheesburgers at the bowling alley in Lajes are incredible.

Guys would always get upset when we were routed thru Lajes rather than Europe on those long fights back from the Middle East. But after eating MREs the entire time we were deployed those bacon cheesburgers really hit the spot. Me and my buddies would rush over to the bowling alley (open later than the chow hall) the moment we got off the aircraft and scarf them down, then head over to BAQ for a good nights sleep in a nice warm soft bed...our first real meal and real bed in months.

Getting to spend a couple days in Germany or England was great. Wouldn't trade that for the world. But if they diverted us to Lajes instead, that was cool with me too - thanks to those amazing bacon cheese burgers.

FOB Marez after the suicide bombingg in late 2004. While that was quite a blow to us at the time, they fixed up the chow hall and made it the best one I've ever ate in. And yes, that includes the awesome AF chow halls in Korea.

It was in a quonsen hut in Twenty Nine Palms, CA. Was a mess hall called Tankers. Made the best omlettes and meat gravy on busqettes ever. They built a new one and closed Tankers but the food was never the same as Tankers.

An AF chow hall on Naval Station Rota, on a stopover flying home from my last Iraq deployment.

Don't know if it was the food itself or the freedom flight.

It was the "KILL BLUFOR" DFAC at Ft. Polk back when it was run by soldiers. That was back in 2000/2001... my last stint in Tigerland saw a vastly different grade of dining facility. Best ever? The DFAC at the American Embassy in the Green Zone, Baghdad. Only went there once, after a particularly long mission that was one of our only trips into the Green Zone, but man did it leave an impression.

My first would be a small German army base we stayed at prior to the Iraq invasion. It was a mom and pop style authentic German. Wish i knew the name, but after landing in ramstein, they bused us to this foreign base. Second would be an AFB in Spain we stopped at in the middle of the night.

Seeing a bit of a theme in this thread...

Been quite a few years but...

Best: Lowry AFB in Denver & RAF Lakenheath in England.

Worst: No contest. Marine Base 29 Palms. Only place I've ever been that could make BACON taste awful.

If your eating fancy gourmet meals on base your definitively in the rear with the gear

I don't remember Ft McClellan being all that memorable, then again I was a New Yorker at the time, there in August and going thru MP reclass kind of against my will, wanted to stay 11B. So the insane heat and humidity and crappy new job, knowing that I was going straight from there to Ft Dix to MOB with a P.R. NG unit might have put a damper on it all. Did have some pretty good BBQ at a place in town though.

For me the best was probably the Air Force chow hall just off the air field at BIAP or the Embassy in the Green Zone, we would often decide to stop in for lunch when we were on patrol just across the river, got to meet Gen. Odierno and his CSM at the time.
