RE: Road food I55 Chicago to St. Louis
I agree with Jim Ross. I stopped at the Dixie summer before last on my way to Chicago and was very disappointed. The chicken was dry, the mashed potatoes tasted like they were instant (Dixie used to serve real mashed potatoes that were wonderful), and the gravy tasted like it was from a mix. The restaurant was not clean, and the service was terrible.
Yes, Al, it's a cryin' shame . . . I remember when they had moist, flavorful fried chicken, real mashed potatoes with homemade cream gravy. I hope someone buys the place & returns it to its old glory.
