List O' The Week: Best Places to Eat in Oxford, MS

1. L and M's

Italian. For the big spenders, although they have reasonable lunch prices. The fixed price dinner ($45) is the best. If you don't get the fixed price be sure to order the cured meat and cheese tray.

2. Yocona River Inn

The best steaks in town (although Yocona is actually about 10 miles outside of Oxford). BYOB. Menu changes weekly. Be sure to get the Yocona sauce on your steak.

3. Ajax

Great prices, great food. Diner atmosphere. My favorite is the meatloaf with fried eggplant and sweet potato casserole.

4. Petra

Greek place. Never seems to be crowded so I don't know how long it will last. I always get the Petra wrap, a combination between a gyro and chicken souvlaki. The fries are fantastic and the desserts (tiramisu and baklava) are perfect.

5. Taylor Grocery (see photo)

15 miles south of Oxford in the tiny town of Taylor. Good country food. Buffet is $5. Best day to go is Friday lunch for the catfish plate with fries and hushpuppies.

6. Phillips Grocery

Best burgers in the state.
