I am from Kankakee, Il, and as I was traveling to Poplar Bluff Mo. to visit family I noticed the sign for Dixie Barbecue outside a quaint old whitewashed building that seemed to promise good food waiting inside- which just goes to prove the old saying true- 'NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER!' To be fair, the waitstaff were friendly, outgoing older women, that were eager to please- I could not complain about the service at all- and I tipped accordingly, though the tip was entirely due to the service, and not the stuff they called barbecue. The meat tasted watery, like it had been kept warm for a day or so, and the sauce? I asked if it was their own concoction, to which they proudly said YES!!!; It was hideous. A pink slime consisting I believe, of ketchup and miracle whip; to call it barbecue sauce seemed strange, although as I understand it, they have somewhat of a local following- once again- old sayings- 'IT'S ALL WHAT YOU GET USED TO!' At any rate, if you are a Barbecue connoisseur- or even if you are looking for a decent sandwich til you can get elsewhere, do yourself a favor and go to McDonalds- the quality is pretty consistent, they are required to meet health standards, and they are cheap. Sorry Dixie- thumbs down... way down!

This place has the best BBQ Pork in the world. My dad is from Jonesboro, Il and ever since I was a child its the place to eat. I am from Chicago, Il but I order pounds of this pork and take home beacuse its just so good, and the BBQ pork we have in the city, is no comparison to the BBQ pork that I love. I wish we had a DIXIE BBQ restaurant in Chicago, because this place is the BEST around............

Whenever I visit my relatives, I make sure to stop off at the Dixie! I LOVE their barbeque slathered in their secret sauce and covered with their even more special slaw mixture! This is definitely the greatest thing since sliced bread!<br /> If you're looking from a "down home" restaurant with friendly workers or a barbeque sandwich that is second to none, be sure to eat at this time-honored establishment. It's just off the square in Jonesboro!
