Northerners start out with fried pickles and that warm from the oven halopena or corn bread with honey. Don't look for Philly or NY entrees. Indulge in southern offerings. You will be glad you did!

Stopped by on the way out of town and were surprised. The staff is knowledgeable and kind. Our Angelina was a sweetie. This was our first time there so we got a free dessert. Beware , this is a popular place on Sunday. Get there before church gets out if you can.

Went there Jan 1, for our black eye peas and pork. The place was really busy, had to wait to be seated, and had to wait a while to get our food. The waitress told us they were behind in the kitchen, the Manager even gave us a reduced bill. They apologized for the wait, we said it was ok.... More

I'd have to give this place an all around average score! It's good, and they have a big menu with lots of choices, so to that extent almost everyone should be able to find something here - but overall, across the board - nothing is great - it's just all middle of the road - good but average!

Our party of 8 went to DC for lunch after worship service and waited for nearly 45 minutes for a table. We watched family after family go in and sit down while we waited for a table. Instead of holding 2 tables together they kept filling them. Eventually, one of our party's member went in and saved to tables for... More

We needed somewhere to eat after an afternoon of exploring Hot Springs. We found Dixie Cafe close to our hotel. The food was good. Our server was very friendly. They have a soda fountain and the milkshakes were great!

First time visit to the area. The waitress was really great. Very attentive and friendly. They have an assortment to pick from. We had Cheeseburgers and they were really good. Nice size and didn't appear to be a frozen pattie. ALSO had the meatloaf dinner. Great Price. It came with two sides. It was good but ask for the sauce... More

Lots of hype about their extensive menu. Food not so hot. My chicken fried steak tasted like it was missing the steak.

I give this place multiply chances and each visit it gets worst. When it first opened it was great!! But now the service as well as the food just awful. Don't know what happened but sure wish they would fix it.
