Dixie III Restaurant is closing
It’s 10:50 AM and the Dixie III Restaurant at 715 E Dixie Drive is 10 minutes from opening. The staff rushes to prepare tables and dishes, meat ready to be cooked and the potatoes ready to be baked. However, this would be the last week of the morning rush for the well-known restaurant.
On August 29, the restaurant informed its customers via Facebook that it would close on September 9. The owners are grateful for the loyal customers who have sat in the orange booths with yellow tables for decades that they were open.
Many residents are saddened to hear the news and thank the owners for all the great meals and good times they’ve had.
