I recently had the opportunity of eating an excellent lunch at The Dixie with several old Tri City friends, and The Dixie Dog was absolutely everything old Louie Plakis would have wanted it to be! Matter of fact, I had two of them, and they were truly delicious! Charles Reynolds has really given Petersburg a gigantic boost with his wonderful resurrection of this fine old landmark eatery! This experience was so impressive I went back the very next morning for breakfast with another old friend! I had the fried Herring and can't find the right words to fully describe just how delicious it was! Anyone contemplating a trip to the southside Virginia area had better plan on stopping in for a great Dixie, Breakfast or lunch, to make your trip complete! They're not open for dinner, so you had better plan accordingly!
