We've all been there. You're home after a long day, there's a sink full of dishes that you wish you had washed before work, and cooking doesn't sound nearly as nice as simply putting your feet up and relaxing.
That's when the clouds part and you hear an angelic voice singing: it's a delivery kind of night!
Ordering delivery is the perfect way to support your favorite local restaurants around town, not to mention that dining in your own home means physical distancing from other people won't be an issue.
Check out your Oxford delivery options below, and then take a load off. You deserve it.
All of the delivery options listed below offer no-contact delivery, meaning they can leave your food outside your door.
There's no way to talk about food delivery in Oxford without talking about Oxford to You, our town's locally-owned delivery service offering delivery for over twenty restaurants in town.
The list of restaurants you can order from through Oxford to You includes familiar chains such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Graeter's but is overwhelmingly made up of Oxford-specific restaurants like the Cru Gastro Lounge, Krishna, and Left Field Tavern.
Delivery is only $3.99 and the online ordering system includes a tracker so you can see when the driver gets to the restaurant and when they're enroute to you. (It's actually really fun to watch the tracker, in my opinion.)
When: Delivery for most restaurants begins daily at 11:00 AM.
If you've ever craved just a single slice of pizza while walking around Uptown, especially during a late night out, chances are you're already familiar with Bruno's Pizza.
In addition to pizza so good you'll probably want more than just a slice, Bruno's also offers burgers, subs, and even desserts like cheesecake and funnel cake fries.
When: Bruno's online menu and delivery becomes available beginning at 5 PM daily.
Follow Bruno's on Facebook to stay up to date on their daily specials.
Sometimes a classic pepperoni pizza is all you need to hit the spot (and SDS makes a very good pepperoni pizza) but maybe you're in the mood for a half-pound burger, sub, salad, or calzone. SDS also has you covered there, too. Check out their full menu online to explore all of your options.
When: Delivery is offered daily from 11:15 AM to 10 PM.
Having opened in 1985, Phan Shin is the oldest Chinese food restaurant in Oxford. Their menu covers a wide range of dishes from Classic Cuisine options like Egg Foo Young to Chef Specials like Braised Garlic Eggplant.
When: Phan Shin is open for both takeout and delivery 11 AM - 9:30 PM Tues, Wed, Thurs, Sun and 11 AM - 10 PM Friday and Saturday. Give them a call at (513) 523-1020 to place your order.
Pro tip: Phan Shin also has outdoor seating available right outside their front windows on High Street if you'd like to dine outdoors!
Bagel & Deli
Ah, Bagel & Deli. The perfect way to both start and end your day. Their large menu of bagel sandwich creations has something for everyone, from meat-lovers (try the Redhawk Reuben) to vegetarians (the Greg-o-Bagel is a personal favorite).
If you want something classic, you really have no other choice than getting the Crunch & Munch: turkey, smoked cheddar, lettuce, honey mustard, parmesan, peppercorn and Doritos on an Everything bagel. Two words: Yum. Mee. Pro tip: when ordering, grab your choice of Doritos off the shelf first, then hand to the bagel maker.
When: Bagel & Deli offers delivery 5 pm - midnight when Miami University is in session (August through mid-May).
DoorDash offers delivery for the town's fast food chains such as McDonalds, Arby's, and Taco Bell. But you can also enjoy some local favorites through the DoorDash delivery such as Ramen Hachi (which is also offered through Oxford to You), Fridge & Pantry, and SoHi Grilled Sandwiches.
If you're ordering SoHi, we recommend a signature sub such as the Roasted Veggie or the Korean Teriyaki. And don't even think about forgetting the fresh cut fries which are topped with Pecorino Romano Cheese. You're welcome.
When: DoorDash delivers all day but when you can order depends more on the specific restaurant.
Fridge & Pantry opens at 9 AM, SoHi opens at 11 AM, and Ramen Hachi opens at 12:30 PM.
