For new guests unfamiliar with their restaurant, Darrell and Jan Wiley of Smitty's Bar-B-Que have one piece of advice: relax. They cannot rush the process of building dinners from hickory-smoked meats and hearty sides; thus, they implore impatient diners looking for fast food to seek it in New York City. As guests shoot the breeze in the saloon-style dining room—decorated with wood-paneled walls and vintage signs—they can rest assured that their sandwiches, ribs, and half chickens are receiving the individual care needed for them to shine.
Though the entrees at The Dixie Cafe make the biggest splash across its menu marquee, they're threatened with gastronomical upstaging by the southern-style eatery's 19 sides and scratch-made gravies. The chicken-fried steak, for example, is a tender, hand-breaded fillet that fully blossoms with flavor only after chefs smother it with cream gravy and cheddar cheese. And the Cajun grilled catfish's down-home taste isn't fully developed until it is paired up with bites of turnip greens, fried okra, or a homemade roll. The classic platter meals take advantage of this by pairing an entree with two sides, rolls, and jalapeño cornbread and can be ordered "light" for a portion that's smaller than the regular size and easier to toss in the air and catch in your mouth.
