THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Dixie Roadhouse Restaurant Review

: Enjoying a meal of barbecue at Dixie Roadhouse may require a leap of faith: you must agree that it's even possible for barbecue to be enjoyable in a traditional restaurant setting. The best strategy here is to relax, whether that means downing another Abita Amber or letting your server do the ordering. You may be rewarded with succulent pulled pork, alright brisket and chicken that is a bit over-smoked but not offensive. The country gumbo is coffee-dark and served with a scoop of potato salad in the center of the bowl. Side dishes run from unpleasantly sour winter-white cole slaw to fine smoke-tinged baked beans. The vibe is kick-back, with country music blaring and plenty of napkins to go around. The owners include meats such as boar, buffalo and alligator on the menu, along with a daily sausage selection.
