Hearty soul food with a great atmosphere!!! Located in a wonderful location. Leave the fancy pants at home and bring a yourself, a fun attitude and friends. Southern food the way it's meant to be prepared.

We stopped in late looking for a plate lunch type meal which Ajax serves all day - not just at lunch. I got fried catfish and my wife got the turkey and dressing and both were excellent. Ajax Diner is a "don't miss" when in Oxford.

Ajax diner is the place to dine when you are visiting Oxford. Great homestyle cooking at very reasonable prices. The place is not fancy. Actually, I would almost consider this place as a dive. However, I always enjoy eating there. They have a full menu including sandwiches, salads and plate entrees. Nothing seems to be out of a can here.... More

Dependably consistent good food, reasonably priced with excellent staff. My family has tried most all menu options and never been disappointed. Vegetables are well prepared, with adequate but not overwhelming portions. Ajax is must experience dining when in Oxford.

The place was crowded but it didn't take that long to get a table. The food was really good. The wait staff was reliable and courteous. Good place to ea. If the locals come back you know it's good.

Be prepared for a nap afterward! Great meat and 3 or 4 plate on the square. If you're feeling healthy, pops shrimp salad!

We are glad we ate lunch at this popular diner on the Courthouse Square. I had Chicken N Dumplins, with fried okra, cucumbers & onions, and cornbread. My husband had the Shrimp Po Boy with fries. The food was great! Service was friendly. This place gets my vote!

We had lunch at this courthouse square diner. We went on Saturday and it was very busy. However, we did not have to wait long. A lot of variety on the menu. We went with the meat and two sides which was a great choice. Highly recommend the country fried steak, turnip greens and purple hull peas. Reasonable prices. My... More

My wife and I were visiting Oxford for a couple of days from Edmonton, Alberta and read about his diner on Tripadvisor so we decided to try it for supper. The diner is on the main square of town. The diner lived up to our expectations! This place serves some great food at great prices. My wife had chicken and... More
