Spiked Sweet Tea

  • The sweet tea here is made in-house and spiked with your choice of bourbon or vodka.
  • I went with bourbon and would highly suggest it. It was refreshing and sweetened just the right amount.

Cornbread and Serrano Cheese Spinach

  • I didn’t care for the corn bread because I found it to be too dry and hard. I prefer a more crumbly, buttery corn bread.
  • I rarely rave about vegetable dishes, but the Serrano cheese spinach was delicious. I loved the creamy rich flavour and the fact that it had a bit of spice to it. I would highly recommend getting this as a side.

BBQ Platter

  • This platter included pulled pork, pork ribs, brisket, fried chicken, and sausage.
  • Texas style barbecue focuses more on the smoky flavour of the meat and isn’t covered in sauce. I liked that this allowed the flavours of the meat to stand out more because I find a lot of barbecue sauce to be over powering.
  • My favourite item on the platter were the pork ribs. They were tender, meaty, and had a perfect smokey flavour.
  • My close second was the brisket. I don’t get to eat brisket often and I always enjoy it when I do. This serving had a good balance of meat to fat and was tender and pulled apart easily.

Final Thoughts?

Dixie’s BBQ makes solid bbq in a hip atmosphere and is worth checking out if you are in the mood to go into a meat coma.
