“Its all good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

I found this cool place on TripAdvisor and am glad. Our large party all agreed that our food was delicious. The service was fast and friendly also. We will be back if ever in Oxford.

“Great vegetarian options!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

The veggie plate is AMAZING! It's the south, so you need to verify that the veggies you order are vegetarian (some have bacon and such) but that still leaves you with fabulous options. I recommend the broccoli casserole and the fresh sliced tomatoes (which are seasonal).

“Try the porterhouse pork chop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This little diner rocks. Best down home cooking ever. Lots of veggies, fish, and various meat selections. Sweet tea and cornbread of course.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We chose the restaurant based on reviews and weren't sorry, very good. Cornbread just a little dry. BBQ excellent. Sweet potato casserole great!

“Down Home Cooking with a Pinch of New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Owner Randy Yates and his highly dedicated and energetic staff make Ajax a welcome and always reliable stop-over for lunch (and dinner until 10 PM). The large variety of vegetable offerings (including fried okra from scratch; thick slices of Big Boy tomatoes in season; green beans; red beans and rice...) along with long-remembered casseroles (broccoli rice; squash; sweet potato...), meat loaf, roasted turkey with dressing, chicken and dumplings and fried catfish are seasoned to perfection, often with an added little kick of peppery goodness reminiscent of the Big Easy. Without question, one of the friendliest and most reliably delicious restaurants in Oxford. Unfortunate that foodie Anthony Bourdain missed it on his recent sojourn here...definitely his oversight and his loss!
