Titusville is about 15 miles north of Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach on Florida's cental east coast. As such it is off the tourist beat and it has no Atlantic coastline.
Titusville sits on the Indian River almost directly west of the Kennedy Space Center and the enormous Vehicle Assembly Building.
So...few tourists, few snowbirds and an old Florida feel. Ah...Titusville!
On nearby I-95 there are signs for the world famous "Dixie Crossroads" restaurant.
WOW! Ya gotta go!
The Dixie Crossroads is a local landmark that few touristas know about.
It's primarily a seafood restaurant with a very informal ambiance. Everyone in Titusville, Mims and surrounding Brevard County knows about the Dixie Crossroads and its famous "all you can eat" dinners.
But at the top of the card is the "Dixie Spectacular". Yeah, it's $35.99... but look what you get:
One huge (real) Maine Lobster.
A dozen Rock Shrimp
A quarter POUND of scallops
Two sides (the Cole Slaw is great)
...and for a little extra add a cup of very nice clam chowder.
The Dixie Crossroads has a nice selection of beer & wines along with the usual spirits.
In short: The evening was a great success.
The lady in front of me at the maitre 'd's stand was quoted a 40-minute wait. This is not unusual on any night between 5 and 7pm.
We had a reservation and the wait was two minutes.
So, call ahead. The Dixie Crossroads is very busy.
The crowd of locals is a congenial mix of locals and a few snowbirds who've wintered in the area for a few years... like us.
