“Not really Jamaican cuisine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

I initially did not consider this restaurant when I was reading the trip advisor rankings because it was labeled Jamaican...but after seeing the long line at Ajax decided to step in next door-so glad i did! Great burgers and homemade fries! Even returned the next day to try the chicken sandwich :) make sure to try the mimosas!!!

“Great food great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Love love the irie burgers. Very well prepared and have many not your norm toppings. Fries are good. I haven't tried anything but the burgers yet cannot seem to make myself look at the other food because the burgers are that good. The staff, owners, everyone at Erie make you feel welcome. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere. Love this place and always eat here when I am in Oxford.

“Loved the loaded fries!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We were in town for the Texas v. Ole Miss game. We were trying to find some place with minimal wait and happened upon this place. I remember seeing it on Trip Advisor but glanced over it because the cuisine was "Jamaican". The only thing I saw on the menu that was Jamaican was the name. We LOVED the loaded fries that you could customize any way you wanted. The 3/4 pound burger grilled on charcoal grill was also excellent. My husband and I split the fries and the burger and was more than enough food!

The service was a little slow on this day but it was a CRAZY day in Oxford, MS so it was understandable.

“My Favorite place to eat on the Square!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The owner of this eatery is dedicated to only the finest, freshest, and unique Serf and Turf. The lightly battered fried Jumbo Shrimp wrapped in bacon will make you slap your momma! The Cap steak is the best cut of meat in town. The beer on tap offering is the best in town. The staff is friendly and good at what they do.
