A History of Oxford Restaurants

29 Jul

I just came across a fun group on Facebook called Restaurant History of Oxford, Mississippi. And for those of us who haven’t lived here all of our lives, it’s an interesting page to read about all of the old restaurants that used to be here in town (Danver’s, Smitty’s, Joe’s Hamburgers, Sloth’s, Mr. Oliver’s Pink Crustacean, etc.). The list goes on and on.

Check it out when you get a chance, and add your own memories to the list.

    I will be visiting Oxford next month for a few days and will be sure to check out some of those restaurants. I love going to places that have great food AND have a real historical ambiance and story behind them.

    SFA has some interesting articles on their website about Oxford’s restaurant history. This is one of my favorites.

    BTW, Angelo is no longer working at James Food Center but at Lindsey’s Chevron on North Lamar.
