We go to Dixie Diner for breakfast once or twice a month. The food is tasty and made fresh by hand. The portions are good, the prices are good, and it all tastes great. This is southern cooking at it's finest. The staff is fast and attentive, and quick with a smile. This place is a throwback to the old... More

Great diner, locals love the place, it feels like it's been a part of Petersburg forever. They have some interesting specials, I once had a "redneck eggs-benedict" there, it was served on a grit cake with a beer cheese sauce, excellent!

First time eating at the Dixie Restaurant. Went with a group of 12 ladies. When I opened the menu, I did a double take because the prices were so low. It was like looking at a menu from 40 years ago. I ordered a Naked Hot Dog, side order of Macaroni and Cheese, Water and Pumpkin Bread Pudding w/ Carmel... More

In my quest to find the best chili dog in the world, I came across the Dixie Diner. Still haven't found perfection, but their dogs are to die for. They did a super job remodeling.

I recently had the opportunity of eating an excellent lunch at The Dixie with several old Tri City friends, and The Dixie Dog was absolutely everything old Louie Plakis would have wanted it to be! Matter of fact, I had two of them, and they were truly delicious! Charles Reynolds has really given Petersburg a gigantic boost with his wonderful... More

Love Dixie! We had a big group of two families and loved the outdoor patio. We all got different dishes and they were all great! Highly recommend... Wether you are staying in the area or just driving through... You need to stop for lunch or breakfast!

The new owners have taken great care to bring back some of the old favorites (including the cooking staff). establish the decor from the past, and maintain reasonable prices. I ordered the Ghoulash, which was... More
