“Margaritas and Greek Pimento Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

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 come in a variety of flavors. The margaritas are awesome. Pungent, not overly sweet, and large. I like getting them frozen with either strawberry or watermelon flavor....don't knock it till you try it. AND the very reason I come back time and again....the Greek Pimento Cheese. It's a spicy, savoury, delicious take on pimento cheese made with feta and served with warm pita. Just describing it here is making my mouth water. So good!

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.

“Great salad and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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.

“Overated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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.
