You can't go back, but, do you think the Dixie restaurant would be better off if they hadn't started messing with what was working from the beginning, meaning before the first remodel they did.

In my opinion, yes, if they hadn't changed a thing, it would be fine. When the moved the kitchen/grill to the back and closed it in, it took away the atmosphere totally.

What do you think.

I like the way they remodeled. Not thrilled about the bar crowd at nights.

I loved the old Dixie, before any remodel. The one thing about it now is that it is so dark in there during the day, they won't turn on the lighs, you can't see the menu to order.

They ruined a good thing for no reason, and now, they can't sell it for anything in this economy. Even the "old regulars" don't go in much any more.

I'm in there at least 3 or 4 times a month now, but, I used to go in every day at lunch.

I doubt that many people take a laptop to the Dixie. If I owned a restaurant thats the last thing I would want to see. Somebody coming in and setting up shop.
Well well well

It happens all the time down there. Go in for lunch and you will see, there is a good wireless signal down there!

Well if they want to sell food they need to get rid of the internet so the computer nerds dont take over and run off paying customers

Who in the world takes a laptop into the Dixie?

The recipe for success at that place is to clear out the smoke smell every morning and go back to bacon eggs gravy and coffee for breakfast, soup beans and cornbread or a chili dog for lunch, steak or fish for supper with beer and karaoke to follow and no laptops allowed.

But if those laptopers are the only customers she has, and no one is waiting in line for a table, what's the problem. If she sells them coffe, tea, or whatever, as long as she sells something ,it's that much more money she made that day that she wouldn't have.

If the laptoppers are the only customers she has then she is in real trouble. They are not interested in anything but sponging a free internet connection.

That would be like going to the Dixie with a deck of cards for lunch. This is just a couple of loafers that have convinced management that wireless internet is the way to go. The same thing shut down the Beanery.

If I was guessing, I'd say its the same crowd that shut down the Beanery. Go home nerds, use your laptop elsewhere. Mcdonalds has a connection also, get your ass out of my Dixie!!!!

I think you are right. A bunch of people were scared to go in the beanery because of all the creeps on laptops. I hope that does not happen to the dixie.

The Dixie used to be great until the laptop bunch and the beer crowd took over. Now it is just a spit and sawdust saloon.
