Excellent | Worth a Detour
Review by: Roadfood Team
The star of breakfast (served all day) at Dixie Diner in Lebanon, OH, is a “Kuntry Getup,” which is three eggs scrambled with home fries, ham and cheese, sided by grilled Texas toast. You can have breakfast all day long at this traditional diner, as well as burgers and good homemade pie. For lunch, there are sandwiches and burgers and homemade pie.
I walked in, hung up my coat, and was told to take a seat anywhere that I wanted. Well, being that I like sitting at the counter and listening to the staff talking amongst themselves and with regulars, I bellied up to the countertop. I looked at the menu and found a lot of the types of food that you would find at a typical “diner” establishment: your typical burgers, pork tenderloin sandwiches, and a few other house specialties like the Dixie Burger. And of course, in true diner fashion, they serve breakfast all day long, which instantly made me like the place all the more.
What to eat at Dixie Diner
Got my chocolate milk shake first and it was a good solid version; decent chocolate flavor and it was the perfect consistency. Next up were the biscuits and gravy. I had mixed feelings about this one overall. The biscuits were a little bit over-baked or were just a little bit tougher than I like. The gravy had good flavor and some nice meaty chunks of sausage but still needed some pepper to kick it up. The hotcakes were a good solid version and I would say they were probably around eight inches in diameter, so they were of good size, but the best part is that they had good flavor.
While it may not have been the prettiest piece of coconut cream pie in the world, or my favorite in the Dayton area for that matter, it was a really good slice of pie. There were a good amount of chunks of coconut and you could tell that it was homemade, so it just warmed my heart.
If I am ever in the area again I know I will stop by to try some of their other delicious-looking burgers that seemed quite popular with the regulars.
