Went in for the first time today (for breakfast) and experienced an average restaurant visit. It's cash only and moderately priced. Average service, average food, basically just your average, small town diner. They do put vanilla in their pancakes so that was a pleasant surprise. Probably will be back since I definitely didn't have any complaints.

We had take out. Found it similar to college cafeteria food. Okay but not what we expected. Portions are huge and easily enough to share. Order to ready in less than 10 minutes.

We used to go to this restaurant a fair amount, but over the last couple years the service has really gone downhill. Yesterday was the last straw. My wife and I went in and seen that a waitress was just cleaning off a booth, she got about half done and left it so we figured rather than stand in the... More

Pros: Very generous portions of food. Food was decent and is served with appropriate condiments. Atmosphere was nice. Cons: They are a cash only restaurant. The difference between a half order and a full order is only 20 cents... I didn't want a full order, but felt it was extremely expensive to order the half so I ended up getting... More

Dixie cafe is a sit down restaurant. It's small inside, but worth it. The prices are cheap and you get generous portions of great food. The staff are very friendly. It's located right next to the I-75. I'm glad I live about 25 minutes away or I'd be here a few times a week.

This off-the-beaten path restaurant has been a favorate for many years and still offers friendly service, an excellent menu of homestyle meals and is easy to get to from I-85 - from the Monroe area or Detroit Downriver suburbs. The menu changes daily. Many local people return several times each week, so it's not uncommon to see familiar faces pretty... More

Description
Authentic diner experience right down to the friendly staff interacting with local regulars. It feels like a slice of Americana when you eat at Dixie Cafe. Good stop right off of I-75 when you're traveling south.
