Oxford, Mississippi is a place that one would expect to have amazing food. If you choose to come and visit this great city of ours, you have to check out all of Oxford's local food scene. Here is A Locals Guide: Where To Eat In Oxford for all you foodies out there. 

Oxford Grillehouse 

salmon, bread, chicken
Sara Doan

Located conventionally on The Square (Oxford's popular area for shopping and night life) you can go shop and dine at this amazing restaurant after. The steak is delish and I'd highly

recommend the mac n cheese. However, I will say it can be kinda pricey. 

Taylor Grocery 

Sara Doan

So technically the next one on our local restaurant list isn't in Oxford, but it's worth the 15 minute drive down Old Taylor Road to get to. This restaurant was a no brainier when making our local list. Taylor Grocery is a classic that's been around forever in Taylor, MS. The outside of the restaurant might turn you off, but trust me the food will turn you on. Everything at Taylor Grocery screams southern cuisine. 

Big Bad Breakfast (BBB)

Elizabeth Blackstock

Big Bad Breakfast or commonly referred to as BBB, is a must if you're in Oxford. This all-day breakfast restaurant is a classic. But, be sure to arrive early if you go on the weekends because the wait could be an hour long (but TOTALLY worth it)! 


garlic, pasta, asparagus
Caroline LeGates

This place is mouthwatering!! Boure's menu offers a range of things including: crawfish cheese dip, grilled cheese and tomato soup, a wide choice of salads, crabcakes and so much more. And as an added bonus, they have a second story patio with a full service bar!

Funky's Pizza and Daiquiri Bar

alcohol, strawberry, lemonade, sweet, ice, cocktail, juice
Mary Alexander Hooker

Talk about something fun and yummy - Funky's is home to the best daiquiri's in Oxford and some of the best New York Style pizza. At Funky's you can make your own pizza or pick from their selection. 

Side Bar: The Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift daiquiris are a MUST when you go.  

South Depot 

spinach, cheese, chicken, sandwich
Hannah Trinkle

South Depot is Oxford's very own, original version of a Chipotle. You can't go wrong with anything you get here. It's always poppin' and the chips and queso are to die for! This place is also cheap and affordable giving it an added bonus.

The Coop at The Graduate 

whipped cream, caramel, cream, ice, ice cream
Sara Doan
strawberry, cream, milk, ice
Mary Alexander Hooker

The Coop is a restaurant on top of the Graduate Hotel that over looks the Oxford Square. While they have a limited option for food (typically bar snacks) you will for sure be able to find something you'll wanna sink your teeth into. It is also a great place to go and get drinks while watching the sunset. 

El Agave

pasta, rice, vegetable
Caroline LeGates

And wrapping up our Locals Guide: Where To Eat In Oxford, the last but certainly not least restaurant is.... El Agave. El Agave is new to Oxford, but has been sure to make a name for itself. Every single time you go here, there is always a line to get a table. Trust me though, it's so worth it. There is something about it that makes it one of our favs!
