When we find a place to eat that we love, we get like really, really happy :) Usually we are content to eat at home, Joe being such a fabulous chef and all...why would we waste our money...really. We compile our menus weekly, treating our dinner table as our own personal restaurant. Representing my Mexican heritage on Tuesdays (taco Tuesday...holler), maybe Joe's German on a different day...Indian maybe one night...and always with an Asian flare sprinkled in. However, Dixie Picnic is our new FAVORITE place to grab a bite to eat outside of our home. Joe had heard about this restaurant along the Jersey shore that would make picnic lunches and sell them...we tried to check it out, but it was closed the day we were at the Shore. Quite accidentally we found this restaurant nestled inconspicuously in a strip mall. After talking with the owner we found out it was that exact restaurant that we had tried to visit at the Shore. With the economy, they had lost a lot of business, closed their shore restaurant, and moved close to us!!!!!!! The wife is the chef, and incorporates her southern upbringing into her meals, and her husband runs the front of the house. They are amazingly warm and kind. It is very casual...wholesome and home cooked meals, we <3 it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
