Lunch & Dinner
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.
