University of Mississippi: Best Late Night Food Spots
Late nights and college kids go together like Ole Miss and football. Whether you're coming from a house party, you've been living it up on the Square, or you’ve spent the whole night studying, here are the 10 best spots for late night bites in Oxford!
Believe it or not, the most popular place for late-night grub in Oxford is a gas station. Although its official name is 4 Corners Chevron, this bastion of fried goodness is more commonly called “Chicken on a Stick.” Obviously it's named for its most popular offering, but you can also get the usual roundup of gas station fare, like potato logs and pizza sticks.
Who doesn't dream about a pizza place that's open late after a long night out? Named for its location on the Square (or is it their square-shaped pizza?), this is popular spot to stop by after the bars close. These double-baked pizzas have a distinctive crunch, making them perfectly crave-able late at night (or anytime)!
Looking for a late-night meal that's still light and fresh? Try the Pita Pit. They're open until 1 a.m. Sunday-Wednesday and 3 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. You can design your own sandwich, so even the pickiest eaters can get exactly what they want. If you're rushed for time, you can order ahead online.
Late-night tacos? Yes, please! The Yoknapa Taco truck is a favorite in the area thanks to their delicious menu of Mexican-style street food. This cheerfully-decorated, bright green truck is sure to put a smile on your face when you see it parked near you! Keep an eye on their Facebook page so you always know where to find them!
Another awesome pizza offering from the Oxford food scene, Dodo sets itself apart by delivering quality pizza straight to your door. Their artisan pizzas are topped with fresh basil and come with a variety of toppings, from strips of real bacon to fresh-cut pineapple (if you're into that). Order online, then watch your pizza being made live on the website!
If you're looking for a place where you can have drinks and get something to eat at the same time, check out the Blind Pig Pub and Deli. Their menu includes grilled hoagies and sandwiches, burgers, nachos, salads, all perfectly crafted to hit you right in the late-night cravings. The prime rib French dip is sure to satisfy.
SWOON! 😍 The Southern Bella @theblindpigoxford is everything you could ever ask for in a #vegitarian sandwich! #melt 😋 Made with grilled baby portabellas and grilled onions, provolone, tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, pesto and mayo, served up on a toasted hoagie roll! 🙌🍄 #blessyourheart #oxford #mississippi #olemiss #rebels #lapescilife #cityskinny
So, you're the designated driver for the night and you have a car full of people who all want something different. Somebody's in the mood for barbecue, someone else wants a milkshake, you've got a couple of votes for burgers. Where do you go? Cook Out, of course! This fast food chain is open super late, serving up char-grilled burgers and chicken, delicious bbq, and over 40 flavors of milkshakes!
Rafters in Oxford is a great place for live music, but they're also known serving up some great food. Their menu has a strong Cajun influence, like the Babineau Burger, topped with Pepper Jack cheese, fried onions, bacon, and remoulade sauce. Go ahead and order the alligator bites as an appetizer—you know you want to.
Okay, let's be honest—sometimes the only thing that's going to satisfy those late-night munchies is something sweet. When that sweet tooth hits, Insomnia Cookies is there for you. They're conveniently located on the Square, but they also deliver until 3 a.m. Their menu includes cookies, brownies, ice cream, and more.
10. Secret Grilled Cheese, Oxford, MS
Located in the Downstairs Bar, "Secret Grilled Cheese" was once a late-night, speakeasy-style restaurant closely protected by a select group of locals. You can't keep something this delicious a secret for long, though. Located down Faulkner's Alley behind Old Venice, Secret Grilled Cheese serves up gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches in an upscale setting—there's a dress code, so pull yourself together for this one.
