Burgers by the Beach: Review of Dixie Grill & Bar

Dixie Grill & BarForget the starched linen and stuffed shirts, this is the perfect place when you’re in the mood to chill out, relax, and enjoy some hearty, satisfying, diet-busting food. Even the salads aren’t especially diet-focused (steak gorgonzola and buffalo chicken). But all those calories come with the benefit of full-on flavor, as evidenced by the sumptuous flat iron steak smothered in Cajun cream sauce, light and flaky Dixie’s fish and chips, and Jack Daniels-sauce shrimp. If you think your appetite is up to it, try on the 20-ounce Porterhouse steaks. Eat slowly, sample the beers and try to figure out what all the stuff hanging from the ceiling is. The place is covered, walls and ceiling, with items from the personal collections of the twin brothers who own Dixie Grill. You’ll see every imaginable expression of Americana, from little red wagons to advertising signs to surfboards.

JeffEats.comLet me start by telling you, that I absolutely love joints like Dixie Grill & Bar…unlike “chains” like Friday’s, Chili’s, Appelbee’s, Ruby Tuesday’s—these “one-off” joints are the real McCoy. Now, you know and I know, that chains’ decors and concepts are planned down to the “dust” on the floor… while-joints like Dixie Grill & Bar are the brainchild of guys like Richard and Jay Preefer who hand-pick every decoration and figure-out every menu item…Trust me on this, 99% of the time–joints owned and operated by the “moms & pops” of the world, run circles around their corporate-counterparts. The other night, I did Dixie Grill & Bar for dinner…the joint’s menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees…there is a full bar and indoor/outdoor patio seating. Sampled “stuff”—fried macaroni & cheese, crab cakes, cheeseburger, chicken sliders, beef stir-fry, chicken salad, tuna salad. Every item was delicious. Service is as pleasant as can be. On the price-front, no more expensive than the “Friday’s” of the world. The joint has inside/outdoor patio seating. Trust me on this one…Dixie Grill & Bar is a terrific restaurant. If you want to see a cool-well run American Style restaurant in action …check Dixie Grill & Bar out.

Citara, B. and Tiempetch, T. (2010, May/June). 12 diners, dives & cafés. Boca Raton Magazine, 30, 86-95. Dixie Grill - Boca Magazine Article“It’s the kind of place where everyone is treated like a regular, even if they’re not, though more than likely after a couple of visits, they’ll become regulars too.”

PS561 Blog: Hot dogs too good for the lunch line.

“Oh, for the food! Well, Stef and I had never been, and in my opinion the best way to judge a joint such as this is to order the burger, and that’s just what we did. The burger was cooked perfectly, char grilled, and served with all the fixins on a toasted bun. The fries were hot and crisp. A really solid burger. This place just may become our new hangout.” For more from the review, check out the blog at

Nick The Gastronaut: A person with a keen appreciation for food.

“My experience was pleasurable and filling. The fact that this is a grill before it’s a bar really shines through with the daytime crowd. I would stop in again just to find out the special of the day once more and maybe cruise by one night for a few rounds of beer!”  For more from the review, check out the blog at Competitive eating news, database, and calendars.
