Located on Oxford's
town square, the Ajax Diner whips up a bunch of good
down home cooking. As I always do, when it's on
the menu, I went for the chicken and dumplings.
Chunks of chicken and plenty of dumplings in a rich,
cream gravy. On the side, sweet potato casserole
which in a crust would be sweet potato pie and spicy
creamed spinach that packed a peppery kick. For
dessert - warm cherry cobbler a la mode.
Also on the menu,
Matty's Mom's Meatloaf, Hot Tamale Pie, Fried Catfish
and Red Beans and Rice.
