Bunch here on Friday with the wife. Breakfast was solid; Dixie omelette was great. Eggs, collards, cheese over grits was outstanding. Corn cake was fun, not sweet. Stewed apples were great, no or little added sugar! Busy place. Overall a winner.

Per the recommendation of the server, added Swiss Cheese to a Bologna Burger. Normally comes with American. Great advice. Grilled onions made the sandwich over the top delicious.

We ordered the pickle fries and they were excellent! Our waitress was super nice. The booths were a bit lumpy and uncomfortable. Sit at a table instead. Good food at a great price!

We love places like this that have such a wonderful history. I like the original section, but they do have a nice covered patio. Not for the faint at heart: We got a bologna burger, red hot dog and a corn cake. Plenty of locals...More

The Dixie is a landmark breakfast and lunch establishment in the heart of Old Towne Petersburg since the 1920s and in it's current location since 1939. It has seen several owners over the years and remains a local favorite. We specialize in traditional southern cuisine. Our menu items include our famous Dixie Dog which is a red hot dog with mustard, onions and our tasty chili sauce. We also serve fried Salt Herring, Salmon Croquettes, Meatloaf, Chicken & Dumplings, made from scratch Pimento Cheese, and Chicken Salad. We offer a variety of sandwiches, barbeque, burgers and hot-plate specials that change daily.
