Fantastic Bar-B-Que! Large portions of perfectly cooked meat. My wife and I have had sandwiches and ribs there; all very good. Parking right in front of the restaurant is limited but easy to park in adjacent lot. It was pretty busy when we have been there; however, service is quick and food arrives fast.

Dixie Bones was great back in the 1990's especially the brisket and the pork ribs. Now the price has gone thru the roof and its prohibitive to take a family to dinner. It's only two of us and we can't get out of there without paying $50 and that doesn't include desserts. Best bet for a family is to go to the Sunday brunch.
That said the chicken breast is very dry like chewing straw and that is after the watery BBQ watery is added. Their sides taste like somebody heard about southern cooking and then tried to copy it. What do I mean southern food is flavorful this is not and I believe its because they have hired Hispanic cooks and this isn't their food. Over the years they have phased out their African American cooks and you can taste the difference. The beans are just boiled in water, the cabbage is water boiled and bland and the collards are water boiled and oily but again there is no flavor.
Good foods: the fried catfish crunchy and moist,the sweet tea(some kind of good) loaded baked potato with the beef brisket not the chicken, and the smoked turkey.
I think because there is only one BBQ restaurant (Famous Daves) providing any competition for the BBQ business Dixie Bones quality has slipped comfortable in the lack of competition.

The food is good but comes out with no sauce on it. They do have a variety of sauces at the table you can use but the regular bbq sauce is too sweet and a little too thin. The brisket is really good and the pulled chicken is good. Baked beans are too sweet as they have some of the bbq sauce in them. However the service and hospitality is impeccable. Our waiter named Will was amazing and so attentive. The food came out really fast and he refilled drinks so often that we never had to ask. Definatley ask for him. We would like to go back.
