We went for lunch and had both the chili and the tacos. The chili was good. Tacos were okay. Our service was great. Not sure we would go back, though

I love this place. Old fashioned chili dog. They grill the bun. Yum. Smothered with chili and cheese and onions. They have pepper vinegar sauce on the table (for the southern folks - peppa sauce; for the non-southern folks - it's vinegar with red peppers stuffed into the jar to spice up the vinegar). Delish. Love, love, love. Great place... More

Some guy was eating a booger as we walked in. Looked at menu. $7-8 for a single with cheese. We decided to leave and go to hiboy across the street. So I don't know what to rate it.

Let me start with a confession: I'm a bit of a chili snob! I've actually won awards for my chili. I've been wanting to try Dixon's for a long time, so me and the family finally went. We've been twice now. Their chili is so addictive! The cheese is a combination of cheddar and swiss and is freaking amazing. The... More
