Double Decker Festival 2017 Food Rundown
The 22nd annual Double Decker Festival hosts 25 restaurants, food trucks, and sweet shops, right in the middle of the square. The list includes a number of Oxford originals and plenty of others from around the region.
Patrons definitely do not want to miss some of these local favorites and out of town favorites. Included in this mix up of flavors are Proud Larry’s, Ravine, Taylor Grocery, and Rebel Barn BBQ, debatably some of the best BBQ in Oxford, serving some classic Oxford staples. Get pizza from anyone you can imagine in Oxford such as Dominos, Old Venice Pizza Company, Funky’s Pizza, Dodo Pizza, and the newest Fergndan’s Wood Fired Pizza. Maybe we can find something healthy at the Living Foods Organic Cafe and Market booth.
Beat the heat with a snow cone from Sno Biz or some fresh pink lemonade from Camp Lake Stephens. Enjoy some traditional cuisine from Ming’s Kitchen and Casa Mexicana. Then, of course, don’t forget Oxford favorites including Neon Pig, Beagle Bagel, Abner’s Famous Chicken Tenders, and Gus’s Fried Chicken.
