We were in town on business and wanted a casual meal. Yes we know the "square" has fine dining but sometimes we just want to relax. Three of us ordered the 1/2 price margaritas and one had a beer, cheap spot to drink that night for sure. We tried to hotty toddy balls (ok but not wow), the greek pimento... More

We enjoyed the menu. The Hotty Totty balls were a great starter, as was the hummus and pimiento cheese. I thought my beef/lamb pita was average, but others were happy with the soups and salads.

Had the lamb and beef gyro with sweet potato fries. It was outstanding. The gyro was extremely good. Wish this place had been around when I was at Ole Miss.

Best deal in town for lunch. Excellent food, very good service and fair prices. All 4 of us had great meals and had no room for dessert. Would love to go back and try some more entrees.

Thank you for your great review! I'm very happy to hear that all 4 of you enjoyed your lunch experience. If you save room for dessert next time, try the chocolate chip Kahlua bread pudding. It's my favorite! More

With game weekend [Ole Miss vs Arkansas] it looked like everyone was avoiding Oxford Square at dinner time. We got in early [before 6pm] and when we were leaving [around 7pm] about 40 people were in line waiting to be seated. That could be a 30 - 45 minute wait. Fun food is the draw at Volta: wraps, gyros, pizzas... More

We had lunch at Volta and it was such fun. The atmosphere inside is great and the service ( thanks Kate) was friendly and efficient. We had wraps and appreciated the vegetarian options and we loved the bread pudding. I recommend Volta for lunch or dinner.
