Description: The Dixie is a landmark breakfast and lunch establishment in the heart of Old Towne Petersburg since the 1920s and in it's current location since 1939. It has seen several owners over the years and remains a local favorite. We specialize in traditional southern cuisine. Our menu items include our famous Dixie Dog which is a red hot dog with mustard, onions and our tasty chili sauce. We also serve fried Salt Herring, Salmon Croquettes, Meatloaf, Chicken & Dumplings, made from scratch Pimento Cheese, and Chicken Salad. We offer a variety of sandwiches, barbeque, burgers and hot-plate specials that change daily.

We've been coming to the Dixie Restaurant almost every week now for several months and really love this place. If they were open on Sunday's or I was retired I'd probably be coming here more than once a week. It's a classic diner in all the good ways. We've only been for breakfast so far, but I'm guessing that lunch is just as delicious. Everyone that works there is very friendly and helpful (I don't think I've ever had an empty cup). Our normal server, Geneva, always has a smile on her face and treats us like friends. Charlie, the owner, is just as nice and serves our drinks before we even order them. Great place to start the day with a delicious breakfast. ... and did I say they have creamed chipped beef on toast (S.O.S.)!

Chili dog. Service is always quick and efficient. Will eat here again and again.

Southern cooking at it's best. Went in at lunch and it was packed. Everyone knew each other and the staff was super friendly. The food was excellent.
