Tupelo Too?

8 Jan


I don’t know about you, but when I’m looking for a change of scenery, I venture out to Southaven, Memphis or Tupelo on the weekend. Recently, I’ve noticed that several Oxford restaurants have been popping up in Tupelo, making me feel like I never left Oxford. Have you recognized these familiar storefronts while in Tupelo (large chains not included)?

Old Venice Pizza Company
McAlister’s Deli
Newk’s
Varsity Grille
Oby’s (coming soon)

Do you feel that Oxford loses a bit of its charm when local restaurateurs venture into other cities, or that growth is good for both the restaurateur and the customers because it will all eventually trickle down and translate into improvements for Oxford as well?
