“Seattle-Style BBQ, under an overpass”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The waitstaff at the local Outback Steakhouse recommended Dixie's. (Anytime a steakhouse recommends somebody else's BBQ, I figure it's worth a try.)

Dixie's can be an adventure to find. It lives in a refurbished garage, beneath an overpass. The dining area is actually *in* the garage. (You can see the garage door tracks overhead.)

I've always had my doubts about "combination" establishments (such as "Frank's French Cheese and Used Tire Emporium") -- some things just don't go together very well. And Dixie's seemed to fit into that category. Granted, a garage-based restaurant is hip, kitschy, and unusual. But the quality of the food is nothing really special.

“Solid barbecue in an industrial setting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

A revered institution on Seattle's eastside, Dixie's is famous for serving up a hot sauce (dubbed "The Man") that will blast your socks off. Food is good and filling - best to arrive early for lunch to avoid the line (and also because occasionally they run out of barbecue). Setting (in an automechanics compound nestled under the 520) is charming in an industrial way - both indoor and outdoor seating available to accomodate Pacific Northwest weather.

“This place is not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This place is not as good as it used to be.
the worst part of the dining experience was the service, by far.
Quality of the food went down as well. And since Gene is no longer there there is no fun to come back.

“Food pretty Good; Man Sauce- Ridiculous!!! :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The food was good at this tight little spot in Bellevue- I have had better, but I certainly have had worse. The highlight of the meal was a little friendly boy who sat outside while his mom worked inside. His warning of the man sauce was a life saver lol. Sooner or later a man walks out with a pot of "man sauce"- try it if you dare- it is hotter than any restaurant sauce I have ever had, and I am an avid hot sauce lover. Be warned- but be brave. Try also the lemon cake which is delicious!

“Beef Brisket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

I had not been to Dixie's in years. Business associate was in town the other and wanted to go. We arrived after the lunch crowd which made our wait time short. I ordered beef brisket dinner. It is a lot of food! Best BBQ beef brisket I have had. I had it for lunch the next day. Wednesdays they have baked beans as a side dish, yummy. The corn bread is very good as is the lemon cake served as your dessert item. Will have to go more often.
