Granted we had lunch here on Sunday on a home game weekend for Ole Miss - never a smart thing to do when you don't want crowds. Ordering your food is easy enough - though I missed the big menu on the wall - hard to miss but I was avoiding people moving and darting here and there. Luckily the... More

Never been to Newk's until today. I had their Signature salad and it was huge and delicious! They have a table of other salad toppings if you wanted more than what was on your salad (or sandwich). Nice feature! Wanted to try their German chocolate cake, but was too full! Would definitely eat at a Newk's again!

We have been to Newk's at the Galleria several times for lunch, but never at the University Avenue location - or for dinner. The University Avenue Newk's is a bit crowded, but the food is about the same - which is very good. We had a salad, smoked ham sandwich, a cheese pizza, and a kids' pepperoni pizza. Everything was...

Was pleasantly surprised with the excellent food at Newks. Ordered the kale chicken salad and tomato soup. Both came out looking great and tasting very good. Restaurant is a bit dark at nite but otherwise this place is a gem in an area where most things are fried, etc...

Newk's Eatery was started off as Newk's Express Cafe by the same family that brought McAlister's Deli to the world. Don Newcomb and his son Chris started the chain in 2004 and have two locations in the Oxford area. The original at this location on University Ave. just down the road from their previous restaurant venture. The second location was... More

Newk's impresses me that their food and services is always the same - excellent. The Mediterranean pizza is my wife's favorite and it is consistently delicious. The Royal sandwich and the Caesar salad is my personal favorite, but the black and blue salad (with roast beef and blue cheese) is also a winner. As Newk's started in Oxford, you would... More

We have dined at Newk's in other cities. The facility here is pleasant and the food is good. We like the freshness of the ingredients. We also like to order and have the food delivered to the table. The table's then get bussed, which I really appreciate. Somehow, ending a meal by stacking my dishes with those of other diners... More

I am at this location on Newk's several times a month. The food is always excellent and the service as well. I've never been disappointed and will continue to be a regular.

We have eaten here a couple of times. It is our go to place when we want good food fast. I like their soups, particularly the corn and crab chowder. I also really like that I can look up the daily featured soups on their website. My daughter has some dietary issues and has discovered she can order off the... More

Stopped in to Newk's Express Cafe during the Double Decker weekend in Oxford. Newk's has an outdoor patio and I needed a place to rest with my puppy. They were very accommodating and welcoming. Provided a bowl of water for my four legged friend, too. I enjoyed a glass of wine and a DELICIOUS bowl of black bean soup, served... More
