There are three Oxonian restaurants on this trail: the City Grocery, SnackBar Bistro and Oby’s.

Currently, the readers of USA TODAY and 10Best are voting the best food trail out of 20. The Mississippi Gulf Seafood Trail is second, behind Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail in New Mexico. Among the nominees are the Alabama BBQ Trail, Sweet Tea Trail South Carolina and Tennessee Whiskey Trail to name a few.

This is what USA TODAY and 10Best said about the Mississippi Gulf Seafood Trail:

“The Gulf of Mexico is the richest fishery in the Continental United States, especially famous for its wild caught sweet shrimp that command the world’s highest prices, along with lots of other delicious seafood. To celebrate this bounty, the State created a trail of 52 specialty restaurants stretching 360 miles from the Delta to the Gulf Coast and featuring shrimp, oysters, crab and fish (especially drum and flounder). The trail is uniquely sortable by the dish you crave as well as by region, and includes everything from fine dining to oyster shacks to po boy sandwich shops.”


Voting ends August 17. The winners will be announced August 21. Vote here at this site.

Allison Brown Buchanan, University of Mississippi graduate and the head of The Focus Group, the Coast agency behind the Mississippi Gulf Seafood Trail for Mississippi Hospitality & Restaurant Association, said, “Eating at restaurants on this trail is a delicious way to support Mississippi Gulf Seafood and Mississippian restaurants. If everyone who knows about the competition could vote every day until August 17, we could be the number one food trail in the United States! That would give the trail more recognition and could draw more tourists to enjoy our great seafood.”
