web site was created in reaction to the homogenization
of our culture. Years ago, one could travel
throughout the South and fully experience the many
culinary specialties the region had to offer. This was
due in large part to the uniquely satisfying eating
experiences waiting in magical places such as Lafayette,
Louisiana, Memphis, Tennessee, and Smithfield,
Virginia. Sadly, the proliferation of chain restaurants
has all but choked the life out of the family-run diner,
bbq pit, fish camp, rib joint and soul food shack. I
invite you to join me in the fight to preserve and
protect what I consider to be our country’s finest
regional cuisine … DixieDining!
May the fork be with you!!!
