Great Food

We were sent here for lunch by the owner of Cathead and it did not disappoint. The food was superb and the restaurant was really cool. I definitely recommend giving the seared tuna tacos a try. I could've ordered another batch of that goodness!

A local told us this was one of the best food places in the city. So we stopped by. Bustling at the noon hour, on a cold winter day. I had a very good burger, interestingly seasoned, and served up quickly. My partner had a grilled pimento cheese sandwich, which looked good, but she rated only average. Small selection of... More

It's not often that you arrive in a town surrounded by dirt, and find incredible seafood, but the fish tacos at the Oxbow are incredible. We had Gumbo and a burger, and those incredible fries and of course the fish tacos. Nothing else we had on this trip topped the tacos. The gumbo is also incredible. Rich, delta flavor. Can't...

Yummy food at this cute little restaurant. Order at the counter and take a seat. The fish tacos are the best. The fries and soup are excellent. Can't say anything bad.

I popped in here on a rainy Saturday before heading over to the nearby Hambone Blues Festival. This restaurant is designed as a Southern shack and the decor inside is shabby industrial chic if that makes sense, with high ceilings, metals and woods and a big almost clinical bar at the end above which hangs a sign that says "Make...

Great downtown lunch spot. Hamburgers to salads. The Tuna Tacos are the best. They do serve beer. Across from the stage. Great location for Juke Joint and the Blues Festival.

Went to Oxbow for lunch based on a tip from a local. The food was regular American fare, but it tasted great and the prices were reasonable. Gets full quickly during lunch.

This chef-driven restaurant does amazing tuna tacos. The salads are great. Went in for the close location to the Sunflower Blues Festival, and was thrilled to discover this gem.

Had it not been for TA and the suggestion from a local store owner I wouldn't have found this place. From the outside entrance you cannot tell how awesome it is on the inside. Nicely decorated with a cool vibe. You walk up and place your order, self serve drinks and refills. They have a "bar" but appears they only... More
