Oxford Food Favorites: 15 Under $15, pt. 2: Volta

After living in Oxford, Mississippi, for almost 14 years, it can sometimes feel like I’ve exhausted everything our town has to offer—especially on the culinary scene. I’ve worked in special events for over six years and in the food service industry directly and indirectly during that time, but food has remained a personal and professional passion. I have compiled for the new-to-Oxford and the settled some inside scoop of 15 food bites for under $15, making living deliciously more affordable than ever.

For the Margs and Porches

Volta Taverna

Volta is a college-y restaurant, there’s no away around that. But it’s also a very family-friendly, and local-centric place. You won’t be met with kourabiedes or grape leaves at this Greek-inspired restaurant, but you will be left craving for seconds.

The lemon pepper chicken, souvlaki, feta pimento cheese, and Hotty Toddy Balls (just try them) are perfectly paired with half-priced Margaritas and frozen Mojitos on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays on their massive porch.
