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! (Plus, their margaritas were recently voted "Oxford's Favorite" so you should... More
