Oxford Food Favorites: 15 Under $15, pt. 9: Ajax Diner
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 Home Cookin’
Ajax is one of my go-to bar stools for lunch. I post up at the bar with a glass of sweet tea, a three-veggie plate ($9), Pop’s Salad ($12), or, on a Monday, a big ol’ helping of red beans and rice ($13). The popular Ajax Salad ($13) was recently renamed The Ronzo Salad in honor of owner Randy Yates’ longtime friend and local hero, Ron “Ronzo” Shapiro.
