“Tuna Tacos we dream of!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Since we had the fish tacos here last year we have been searching for something comparable at home, and we have a lot of choices in the S.F. Bay area... no luck yet. So although it's a small menu and friends rave about the other choices we've yet to move far beyond the Tuna Tacos, ok, now we had the salad. Only once were they just good, otherwise always excellent mouthwatering delicious! I've lost track of how many times we've eaten here now. I love the fresh, farm to table idea of meals as supporting local is the way to stronger economies and diverse farming makes for diverse flavors, that makes travel so much more enjoyable too.

“Upcycled decor, unique ingrediants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Oxbow is a cute, trendy, fast restaurant. We wound up here because our usual Clarkesdale stop, Madidi, had closed and a business associate recommended it. You really can't get food like this in the Delta- it's very 'comfort meets style' with really good quality food with a twist. I ordered the fish tacos (seared ahi with a srichia sauce, fruit on the side, and a local beer). My husband had Chicken Carbonarra (pure yum with a salad on the side and fanta in a glass bottle) It is very filling, but we wound up going back for chocolate chip banana pudding and chocolate ice cream. It was all fantastic. They also have a small produce section and an area to get pasta salad and other things to go. You can also buy art prints decorating the walls and hard-to-find items in the Delta like sushi ingredients and other things they carry on their menu.

The prices are fair and we just had a great time here!

“Love it! Love it! Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

Best burger EVER!! So meaty and the pickles and gruyere and aioli - all the tastes blended together in perfect harmony! I'm hooked! Also had to taste their famous choc chip banana pudding - which was also heavenly! We'll be back for lunch tomorrow. DO NOT miss this place if you're in Clarksdale!!
