All the food was excellent except gravy was bland, but I find this at lots of restaurants. Well worth the stop.

Went on weekend for late breakfast, very busy place. Food was ok, no kids breakfast menu, but they do offer kids menu for lunch. Staff keeps coffee cup full all the time. Nice little place.

Reminds me of being at grandma's and getting a good potato, egg, and ham breakfast! They have tall fluffy biscuits, great breakfast meats, and great Homestyle hash browns. Their staff makes you feel at home, brings drinks right away and treats you like cousins. I highly recommend breakfast, not for anything healthy, just a good stick to your bones Saturday... More

Good food, large portions, light and fluffy biscuits. Gravy was a bit bland for me tasty. Staff was efficient, very busy but we had coffee refills regularly. Homey atmosphere. A little rough looking on the outside. And if you're into pigs everywhere you'll love it. We would definitely stop there again.

My family has had many Saturday morning breakfasts at the Dixie Pig over the years. When I worked night shifts at the hospital, I even ate a cheeseburger there at breakfast time, so you can get a "lunch" during breakfast hours. My husband and son think everything at the Dixie Pig is good, but they tend to order two things:... More

The wait on Saturday morning was only about 10 minutes but I would have waited an hour for those biscuits!! Our waitress, Lori, was smiling and always ready with the coffee refill. The food was yummo! Crispy bacon, sweet ham, perfect scrambled eggs and two light fluffy biscuits. A Southern girls dream and I ate them both!!

This is what I call a thr8wback to a diner of years past. The food was good and the place was clean. The people there were regulars and were friendly. I believe this is the oldest restaurant in Abilene.

Food is wonderful! Old fashioned diner-type food. All recipes are homemade. Can't go wrong here! It's a very "local" place, lots of regulars. Friendly waitresses! YOU MUST GO!! Breakfast is wonderful!
