“Delicious Southern Home Cooking!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I ordered the turkey and dressing with candied yams and rice & broccoli casserole and cranberry sauce and cornbread. It was delicious! And so much food for just $10.00! The staff was very friendly and attentive. My husband ordered the country fried chicken and mac and cheese and corn. It was very good too! His was also $10.00.

The only thing I did not like is that we could not find parking around the square, it took us a good 15 minutes to get a space. But of course, this in no way is their fault. I wish they could move the restaurant out of the square into another, more accessible, easier to park location.

“Perfect.”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Had it not been for Ajax Diner, I'd have starved. The staff treats you like family. Best place in town.

“Closest thing to Home Cookin'!”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

When we want to get out of out town for a day out we usually end up in Oxford. Depending on our mood we either go to Boure or Ajax. We stick with the meat and vegetables usually and are never disappointed. The roast is great but know ahead of time that several of the dishes have a a different flavor than you may not be used to. For instance, the broccoli casserole is a little spicy. The servers are extremely busy and I wouldn't say out of the dozen times I've been that service was ever 5 star. But it's not 1 star either! Do go try it!

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We went for lunch on a weekday and were very pleased with our meals. The food was delicious, the portions were generous and the price was very reasonable. The server was friendly and efficient. We were a little early before the 12 o'clock lunch hour and were about the third table, however, by 12:15 the place filled up to capacity and when we left there was a line up to get in. So, arrive early!

“The best food on Earth”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

If you're in town, eat at Ajax! I have lunch here at least once a week and haven't had a bad meal yet. Cheese grits, meatloaf, country fried steak, oyster salad- everything is delish!
