I had the Ox Burger and seasoned fries. The burger tasted like pure beef and had a smoky grilled flavor on a brioche bun. Exceptional burger with delish seasoned fries. Great food for reasonable prices.

This place looks unassuming, and yet everything here is super gourmet at rock-bottom prices. Their featured burger is insanely good, and their shrimp po'boy is the best ever, with fresh, large Gulf shrimp. Even their sauces and sandwich spreads are made from scratch, and don't...More

We stopped at the Windmill Market, during Fairhope's downtown "First Friday" event. The Ox Kitchen, one of many establishments at the Market, looked promising. It was better than expected. The burger was fresh, cooked perfectly, and the daily soup, a creamy squash, was excellent (nice...More

Had higher expectations after reading several reviews. For the starters the young heavy set lady running the cashier was very short and unfriendly. We decided on the ox burgers and I must for $8 for a small frozen burger is absurd. The home fries were...More

As the owner, I sincerely apologize for your experience. I've spoken with the impolite server and that kind of interaction won't happen again. I am also sorry you didn't enjoy your burger. Please let us know next time and I will remove it from your...More

Glad you stopped by John! Our menu is always adding fresh new options - with healthy grilled veggie sandwiches, soups and a greek twist on our signature Ox Burger now along with weekly lunch specials. Come back to see us!

Gulf Coast BBQ tends to be sweet especially the Mississippi variety. Ox Kitchen delivers a more salty Texas style to area taste-buds. The Ox Kitchen is located inside the Windmill Market making it a convenient spot for lunch.

Coming from a Texan - that's tall bbq praise. We use pecan smoked wood with our 'q which makes the difference. Our sauces are all scratch made - so we appreciate the feedback! Hope you'll come see us again soon!

With out-the-door fresh ingredients from the garden and local sources - dishes include berry & feta salad; pecan-smoked wings; fried Alabama Gulf oyster BLT and Bo's signature Ox Burger. Plenty for the kiddos. Casual sit down at the Windmill Market.
