Located just off Oxford’s Main Street is a Charming restaurant, complete with exposed brick walls, an old telephone booth and delectable menu. They’re serving the Chicken Salad for Restaurant Week, with your choice of side. I always go for the green beans, and they were good with a smoked pork flavor. The This salad was refreshing, with a ranch-like sauce base, celery, lettuce and diced red peppers, ideal for a warm day. The Chicken Salad sandwich was topped with tomatoes and onion. Be sure to pair it with their really good sweet tea.
