Corbin Kentucky: The Dixie Cafe {est.1929} Prepares to Reopen

Grew up eating here. The Dixie had a multi decade run til it finally shuttered in 2005. It reopened as Vittorinos, an outstanding Italian restaurant that operated for 5 years before closing.

Now it's coming back.

The original Dixie was one of a dozen or so iconic restaurants in Southeastern Kentucky that specialized in chili buns {no dog, just chili spooned on a bun} it'll be interesting to see if they can recreate the old chili recipe that made them famous.
I'll gather reports from kinfolk that still live there when the cafe reopens and report back.
