I've heard about City Grocery for years and am happy to say that I was even more pleased than I thought I would be. Great appetizers (get the Pickles & Cheese) and entrees.

During our recent, first time visit to Oxford, we were fortunate enough to enjoy a fabulous lunch at City Grocery. We had heard a lot about City Grocery, some it even fanatical, and it certainly lived up to the hype. Between the two of us, we had a pork chop sandwich and City Grocery's version of a hamburger.
