Local restaurant with a personality of its own. It's a tradition to "blow" cocktail picks up to the ceiling. Lots of local favorites: their sides dishes are delicious. I had fresh tomato slices, sweet potato casserole and beans and rice. All great. My companion had a turkey sandwich, didn't look like anything special.. I ate there twice during my visit... More

I have to go there once while in Oxford. It is a tradition for me. If you are on a diet don't go. Save yourself the heartache of not being able to enjoy this southern food experience. The service is very good. Nice people work there. The food is excellent. I feel that I am back in my Tennessee grandmother's... More

There was a line at 11 am for the 11:30 opening. I tried the meat loaf and it was very good. The best thing I had was the turnip greens, seasoned unlike any I had ever had before. GOOD SERVICE AND REASONABLE PRICES.

Never had bad meal here. Sometimes (translate:most times) service is a little slow. Perhaps because there are so many customers. Both Pot Roast and Meatloaf are killer. I can't explain how good the pot roast is when its good. Only once was it a little "not-tender". Every other time you could eat it with a spoon. The broccoli/rice casserole is... More

We always love visiting here when we are in Oxford. Great Southern Food for quite a steal. There is almost always a wait for a table, I recommend eating at an off time or you will wait. Only issue is if you are dining with a young one, there is no changing table in the bathroom.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at a gem of a restaurant! I grew up in the South and this was authentic food and authentic experience. If you are in Oxford, a must do!

Had the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. It was really good. Perhaps a little on the salty side but not over the top. It was a lot of food and if I had it to do over again, I would get a salad and split the entree.

I went to the restaurant as a guest and we had a great time. The atmosphere is outstanding and the choices to order seem to be perfectly selected. The service was fast and courteous. If you are in Oxford this is one of the places that is worthwhile to visit.

This was my first time to eat here and I was part of a party of six referred by several friends. The food was excellent. I ordered pork chops, mashed potatoes, and butterbeans. I will return to this restaurant. My only "complaint" if you could call it that is when we entered the restaurant the sign read "Please seat yourself"... More

I found this cool place on TripAdvisor and am glad. Our large party all agreed that our food was delicious. The service was fast and friendly also. We will be back if ever in Oxford.
