Enjoyed this outside spot in Oxford! They have heaters outside and really good food with generous portions and good prices.

Volta is a very casual small restaurant serving home-made dishes, The location is a former gas station, but the food is fine. They offer Great Soups.

I enjoyed the quaint setting and the food was okay. It is not very big on the inside, but it does have an outside eating area.

This restaurant doesn’t look like much from the outside (old gas station) but the food more than makes up for any lack of ambience. Wonderful selection of Greek dishes with a Mississippi flair. From several appetizers through the salads and wraps, our group tried lots...More

Had a fantastic first visit to Volta in September. We ordered a big variety of plates and they were all great! DO NOT pass on the HOTTY TODDY balls, the very best appetizer in Oxford. We will definitely visit Volta again!

Always crowded. Great place for dinner. Dine outside or in. Small bar area. Can accommodate large families. Try the mash potato balls.

Hands down, one of my favorite places to eat in Oxford! The vintage setting and delicious margaritas makes this a top favorite! The menu offers lots of options on Greek cuisine and all are equally delicious.. The Hotty Toddy Balls and Dip Plate are appetizer...More

The chicken gyro is excellent and hummus is fresh and perfectly garlicky! The pita bread was fresh and delightfully chewy. Friends had recommended Volta and we were not disappointed!
