This particular Dixie Chilli is one of the best run locations around. The service is great and the portions are huge. No 16 year old employees playing around at this store. Nice seating area and plenty of parking.

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.
