Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Southern fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Dixie's Tavern.
Piping hot Cajun fare and barbecue fuel nights of lively entertainment at Dixie's Tavern. The lunch and dinner menu opens with toasty appetizers such as the sweet-corn fritters served beside ranch dressing ($6), then moves to traditional cajun wraps spinning together chicken, shrimp, or steak with lettuce, cheese, and a choice of tortilla ($7.50–$8.50). Steaming portions of tender pork buttressed by garlic mashed potatoes and a medley of fresh vegetables recline atop a landscape of white rice in the Southern-style pulled pork ($12). Fresh from the rib orchard, slow-cooked baby-back ribs come slathered in a sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, served over fries with a side of coleslaw ($10–$15). For dessert, the chocolate conundrum of a Death by Dixie's Brownie tests the tongue's belief in an aftertaste ($5). Parties only take bathroom breaks at Dixie's Tavern, where evenings hum with Monday karaoke judged by local celebrities, and live DJs proffer boppable beats on weekends.
