Dixie Diner

595 East Main Street , New Lebanon, OH - (937) 687-3004

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.

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, but they weren't the worst that I have ever had. 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.

The most interesting item on the menu, the Kuntry Getup, combines three eggs, home fries, ham, and cheese. The nicely grilled Texas toast is a nice touch. This is a substantial breakfast!

The ham and cheese omelet looks rather ordinary, but it is filled with lots of meat. My nephew seemed satisfied.

A fluffy pile of griddled near-perfection; the only thing it is missing is a dousing of syrup.

Presumably the biscuits were off this day.

Chocolate shake: a good solid version of a standby dessert. The perfect consistency to wash down your lunch... or breakfast.

Simple and easy menu with some dangerously low prices.  You may order several things because it won't cost you too much.

The local high school sports teams are named the Greyhounds, so you will see this dog's image all over the restaurant.

Look for this on the road or you could entirely miss this little gem.
