“Delicious & cheap!”
Review of Pixie Restaurant

Pixie Restaurant
Ranked #10 of 149 Restaurants in Mount Pleasant
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $9
Cuisines: American, Pizza, Fast Food
Description: Travel back to the days of cruisin', coney dogs, neon and juke box rock n' roll. The Pixie is fun with great food-fast! A deep tradition , quality and community involvement all add up to the spirit of the Pixie. The Pixie Restaurant opened in 1948 and was the first drive-in restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. At that time, the operation consisted of curb service with a complete menu. "Car Hops" would wait on customers in their cars and bring their food to them on trays which attached to the window. Today, the Pixie Restaurant has the 50's/60's neon look and a dining room with a 50's juke box, memorabilia and the same great food and service the Pixie has made famous for nearly 60 years.

We stopped in and had coney dogs, fries and a root beer float. All delicous. Very friendly staff. Restaurant was very clean and you can't beat the prices. They have outdoor tables with umbrellas so when the weather is nice, it's nice to have a quick, cheap, pleasant outdoor lunch.

A trip back to the 60's or 70's..not sure I wasn't alive then... definitely a trip back in time and just a great atmosphere and friendly staff. If you are on a budget and don't want nothing fancy and want it fast this is the place to be!

It is a neat little diner. The food was really quite good and it has a fun atmosphere. The kiddos enjoyed the toys while we waited for our food.

Pixie is a Mt. P institution and a must visit in this town. The food is fresh and the serve is generally very friendly. Not the healthiest fare, but it's really good.

We always make sure that we stop at the Pixie when we are in Mount Pleasant. They have the best coney dogs around!
