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 cusine. Our menu items include our famous Dixie Dog which is a red hot dog with a tasty chili sauce. We also serve fried Salt Herring, Salmon Croquettes, Meatloaf, Chicken & Dumplings, made from scratch Pimento Cheese, Ham Salad, and Chicken Salad. During the filming of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln movie we introduced the Spiel Burger, a cheese burger topped with our famous chili. We offer a variety of sandwiches, barbeque, burgers and hot-plate specials that change daily.
