Stopped in for a late lunch and was greeted and seated promptly. Tried the chicken souvlaki which was delicious. Chicken was well marinaded and very flavorful. Pita was soft and warm. Service was great. My only complaint was the fries. They were crinkle cut fries that looked like the kind you would buy in the grocery store and had no... More

The food is always very good here. Good traditional Greek food, Interesting salads, but I like the spicy chicken stew. Atmosphere a bit funky, but nice, since it is an old gas station. The staff is very friendly. When it is not too hot, you can sit outside on a covered deck. Off the main square in Oxford, but worth... More

This is one of my favorite places in Oxford to go for afternoon drinks. The restaurant itself is quite casual--and exists in an old gas station. out front there is a patio area with picnick tables, the perfect place to park yourself on sunny days. Two days a week (Thursdays and Saturdays I believe?) they have half price maragaritas, which... More

My family and I ended up here somehow one day for lunch and we all thought it was pretty good! We had the dip sampler, and gyros.

Sat outside on the deck and had yummy margaritas with a really wonderful Greek salad to which I asked to have added ingredients. Service was attentive and the changes no problem. Will go there again.

For so many Mediterranean restaurants that I have been to, this one is just average. Given that there is not many Greek food choices in Oxford, MS, this one becomes somehow unique.

Best hummus and pimento cheese dips. Margaritas are also amazing. Great casual place to go for lunch or dinner.

First let me say that I live miles outside Oxford...many, many miles. And every year as the weather starts to cool I begin to crave Volta's Spicy Chicken Stew...and I hop in the car and drive...with Tupperware. I love this stew!! Thick and hearty and meaty. I don't even LIKE chickpeas and I love them in this stew. There is... More

We have always eaten indoors at Volta, but this sunny but comfortable weather day left it up to our great-grandson to choose. He said "Outside." Had Volta's spicy chicken stew and marinated pork souvlaki wrap, while Jayden and GG [great-grandma] both had individual cheese pizzas. The dining deck has umbrellas and plenty of space to play under the tables.
