The pita bread and hummus are delicious. Soups, salads, and sandwiches. I've never had a bad meal there.

We were traveling through Oxford on our way to Memphis and searched for a vegetarian-friendly restaurant. We found Volta Taverna on Trip Advisor, and it was exactly what we were looking for. Volta is in a converted service station, but you would never guess that once you are inside. The atmosphere is quirky, light and friendly. There is a beautiful... More

Thank you for writing us a great review! I hope the next time you come to Oxford from Huntsville that you come eat with us again. The quinoa and black bean burger is quite popular for our vegetarian and vegan customers. If you like spicy food, next time ask them to cook it with sriracha sauce. It's delicious that way... More

We went here for lunch after a 4.5 mile hike. We all ordered margaritas, and after tasting mine, my jealous husband decided he didn't want the plain old margarita, he wanted a fruity one like mine. The server obliged him and doctored his up with some raspberry flavoring. We ordered some hummus to share, which was good...I added Siracha and... More

As a local, I eat at Volta all the time. I've had just about everything on the menu, and it's all worth ordering. Some of my favorites: lamb & beef gyro, BBQ chicken wrap (ask to add feta!), and in cold weather: tomato soup with feta pita melt. Yum!
