I have eaten here several times and ordered to go orders too. Very good food with old time drive in feel. You must try the Dixie Chili Cheese and you can get fries or onion rings or half & half. Get a cherry coke or cherry sprite too!

This is one of those places. The ones that mostly don't exist anymore. The Real Deal local institutions. Walking inside is like walking back in time. Good food, great atmosphere (not modern retro-trying-to-be-authentic, just simply the real thing.) I have to stop in every time I'm in Greenwood for a double Dixie Cheese and half-and half. I would take a... More

The Dixie is as much of a tradition in Greenwood as The Beacon is in Spartanburg. The locale has fast food at its finest with counters and spinning stool tops. Friendly waitresses round out the busy staff in back that you can view as they toss and turn favorites like the Dixie Cheeseburger or the delicious bbq sandwich. Each person's... More

The Dixie is your typical "greasy" local diner. Many of the folks working here have probably been here most of their working lives. The Chili Cheesburger with half n' half is the best. You see lots of locals and folks are generally very friendly. I can't address much else on their menu since for the past 30 some odd years... More

I am not being funny. This restaurant has great food. But I feel uncomfortable sitting here. Not many people of color come to sit down and enjoy themselves in this restaurant. Probably because of the stares you get making you feel like you don't belong there. But food is great and it is a clean establish. Just don't like the... More

I came in the Dixie late afternoon on 6-11-16. Sweetest man I had not seen before took my order. I sat down because I know when you order chicken tenders it will take about 7 mins. I really didn't realized how long it was taken until I seen the people behind the counter saying who is all this food. They... More

Local diner that has been around for years and years. Not much on looks, but if you want a great and greasy chili cheese burger and onion rings, then this is your kind of place. Where everyone knows everyone. Well, except myself. I just have to stop for that craving when I am visiting Greenwood.

I get it, locals: you go here because you always have, you know the family that owns the place and the servers all know you by name. It's a classic lunch counter diner with staples like cheeseburgers and onion rings and a nifty old neon sign out front. But the charm ends there, sadly. Yes, the service is speedy and... More

"Where the locals go"! Great food and price! The atmosphere is always great too! The seating is two long counters with old fashioned bar stools so you will typically meet a new face or see an old friend. Dixie Cheese, Half & Half and you can get a real Cherry Diet Coke/Coke!

Can ALWAYS depend on the Dixie. I was there over forty years ago and a regular. Now, coming back to Greenwood, I have the opportunity/good fortune to go back to the Dixe for lunch and a meal on the go.
