“Great authentic food.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Amazing BBQ place.. It feels really authentic. If it's the first time you're there, don't forget to put a pin on their map and to tell the guy that you're new.. He'll greet you with a tast of their special sauce.. You will not forget it! :)

“I Miss The Man”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

The food is still great, the atmosphere is what it is, and the cost reasonable. But no one can replace "The Man", who always had me laughing.

I miss him.

“Seattle-Style BBQ, under an overpass”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

The waitstaff at the local Outback Steakhouse recommended Dixie's. (Anytime a steakhouse recommends somebody else's BBQ, I figure it's worth a try.)

Dixie's can be an adventure to find. It lives in a refurbished garage, beneath an overpass. The dining area is actually *in* the garage. (You can see the garage door tracks overhead.)

I've always had my doubts about "combination" establishments (such as "Frank's French Cheese and Used Tire Emporium") -- some things just don't go together very well. And Dixie's seemed to fit into that category. Granted, a garage-based restaurant is hip, kitschy, and unusual. But the quality of the food is nothing really special.

“Solid barbecue in an industrial setting!”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

A revered institution on Seattle's eastside, Dixie's is famous for serving up a hot sauce (dubbed "The Man") that will blast your socks off. Food is good and filling - best to arrive early for lunch to avoid the line (and also because occasionally they run out of barbecue). Setting (in an automechanics compound nestled under the 520) is charming in an industrial way - both indoor and outdoor seating available to accomodate Pacific Northwest weather.

“This place is not as good as it used to be”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

This place is not as good as it used to be.
the worst part of the dining experience was the service, by far.
Quality of the food went down as well. And since Gene is no longer there there is no fun to come back.
