I currently live in Oxford and attend Ole Miss and Volta is by far one of my favorite restaurants in town. Great atmosphere with great service. I always get the lamb and beef gyro and it is always amazing! They have great half priced margaritas several days a week that also keep me coming back. Last time I was there... More

Volta has the best atmosphere of any restaurant in Oxford. The walls are decorated with art by local artists and on beautiful days they open their garage doors so you can feel the breeze. The service is consistently great and the food is consistently delicious. One of my favorite meals in town is their souvlaki wrap with a side of... More

I've gotten to enjoy this restaurant twice in the past two years on visits to Oxford. I've eaten gyros all over the country, and these are toward the top of the list. Although the pita was a bit dry and cracked apart on the last visit, it was still worth the stop. The gyro is overloaded with meat, something you... More

Located in a converted garage, Volta Taverna hosts a predominantly young crowd drawn to a good but not fancy menu of pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, and the like. Prices are very reasonable and food quality pretty decent. A gyro pizza featuring lamb and sausage was tasty and just the right size. Service was fast and friendly. For a quick but good... More

My husband and I were in Oxford, MS and wanted some lunch but most of the restaurants in the area was still selling breakfast so we said we would go on over to the funny looking restaurant made like a big gas station and most everybody was there anyway but to our surprise it was the best restaurants we had...

I've visited this restaurant on several occasions for lunch and dinner. I've never had anything but wonderful things to say about it! The service is always very attentive and friendly. The food comes out quickly and is always spot on. The atmosphere is amazing with friendly employees and being in an old gas station. I definitely recommend the souvlaki, hotty... More

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.
