People living in Oxford have weighed in on what types of restaurants they would love to see come to the city.

While Oxford is not short on places to eat, with many new spots opening in the last six months, there is always room to fill empty units with delicious restaurants.

Members of the Oxford and Surrounding Area Message Board shared their views on June 27 about what types of restaurants should come to Oxford.

This is what you said:

RON BEDNARZ: Any good fried chicken! Campbell’s grocery used to have excellent fried chicken and sides. I went there almost every week. When they sold, the new owners discontinued and quickly went out of business.

MAJELA URBAY: A good diner would be great!. A good bakery with decent bread.

JENNIFER SALI: A great farm to table with vegetarian options. We are in the perfect area to support fresh local eats!

COURTNEY GROSS: A steak house or something a little nicer to sit down and enjoy a night out.

KIM CHRANOWSKI: I really want a great Steakhouse.

MELISSA PRICE: A French bakery that makes fresh croissants, breads and bakery items. That also makes fresh breakfast sandwiches and lunch sandwiches. Not microwaved with real eggs etc.

JUDY KAMP: A good Greek diner.

TIM BOLT: How about an oyster house style seafood spot? With non-seafood offerings as well?

STEVEN CRUZ: Greek, would love a good Gyro.

DAN SPISAK: A good sit down BBQ joint

CARMEN BELARDO: Cat Cafe...anyone want to start one with me?

ODETTE RAMSEY: Real fried Chicken! Not nuggets or tenders.

TORI WHITTEN: Something decent. Everything is either owned by the same people, who serve sub par food, pizza, or fast food.

RAYN PORTER: A good old school diner with homemade, quality food.
