I would give the place better rating if it was for uniqueness and friendly service. Nothing to complain about there. However, the food was not good. What I ordered had nothing to do with bbq. More like tough, over cooked meat and the so-called bbq...More

The Dixie is a favorite around town as a great place to eat. The atmosphere reminds you of an old restaurant from the 50's and the food is so good. I esp. like the top secret sauce and the pig salads.

I would be hard pressed to say this place served BBQ. I have had better BBQ in Canada......and they think gravy on fries is delicious.

Eating here is like stepping back in time. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the bbq sandwich, cheeseburger and fries. Their bbq sauce is unique, and I preferred it on my fries in place of catsup. Staff very friendly. We'd stop again if passing through.

Good food, fair prices. Dine in or carry out. Limited seating inside and some outside in fair weather. Very casual dining. A local favorite.

Food was decent and reasonably priced. Average bbq food. It seemed like a lot of local people liked to eat here. Many that came in knew each other. It was nice to see a close knit community.

We have eaten here many times & always enjoy it. Reasonably priced and good family atmosphere too. Good menu items for picky kids. We enjoy eating outside when the weather is nice. Staff is always friendly.

I'm 54 and lived in So. Illinois most of my life, and this place has been around for as long as I can remember, so I admit that I might be a little biased. I really love this place, and have been going here since...More
