If you like chili, you'll like Dixie. We think it's superior in every way to the 800 pound gorilla of chili - Skyline Chili. The decor is refreshingly retro, the staff is as friendly as can be and the 5-way is the best.

NOT your "cookiecutter" trash; THIS is REAL. A neighbor business says this is "Cincinnati-style Chili". We had no idea there WAS such, and we were hesitant- - in Virginia, chili often means terribly overpeppered inedibles. What Virginians often accept as chili HURTS.
