Dixie Quick’s Breakfast Goodness


Dixie Quick’s

Dixie Quick’s is both a restaurant and art gallery that has a quirky, fun, bustling vibe and homemade food with an eclectic, flavorful twist.  On Dixie Quick’s website, their food is described as “a blend of Southern Cooking with Cajun, Tex-Mex and Southwest elements. Home cooking, comfort food and darn good flavors.”  I have dined at Dixie Quick’s twice for their breakfast and its a food experience that should not be missed.

The place is very small and each time I have gone it has been busy so reservations are highly recommended.  On both visits, I had the same waiter, Buffy, who provided great service with a charming, quirky humor.  His zesty personality made me smile and laugh and added to the food experience.

Their menu is written on a chalkboard on the wall which varies some.

I last went to Dixie Quick’s with a group of friends on Saturday, July 9th for brunch. Here’s the breakfast goodness that we had.

I ordered the Breakfast Quesadilla which has become a favorite.  It has a nice crispy outer tortilla and yummy breakfast goodness on the inside, a combination to savor. Each entrée comes with a choice of a side of potatoes, grits, or fruit. My first time at Dixie Quick’s I had the grits which I loved.  I decided to try the potatoes this round.  They are soft buttered potatoes that were okay.  The grits are the side dish for me.

If you are a guacamole fan, then this is the dish to enjoy. It is a unique, unexpected omelet ingredient but it works. The creamy guacamole tucked in the fluffy omelet is a yummy goodness.

The Huevos Rancheros is a new delicious discovery.  It was a tasty combination of nachos, scrambled eggs, black beans, salsa, and shredded cheese.  This was my first Huevos Rancheros and I liked all the different flavors with the crunch of the nachos.

I had a bite of the flap jacks and tasted yummy pancakes accented with the mixed berries. The pancakes come with three different options: plain, mixed berries, and sexual chocolate.  If I am in a pancake mood, I will get their pancakes with sexual chocolate. Pancakes and chocolate….  Oh my.

Like the pancakes, the french toast comes with three different options: plain, mixed berries, and sexual chocolate.  The french toast with sexual chocolate is an awesome combination of french toast, chocolate, bananas, and chopped walnuts.  If you like all of these ingredients and want sweet then this is a dish to get.  Mmm… I am now craving this version with pancakes.

The Oatmeal and Ice Cream is a delight.  This picture does not portray the goodness. I plan to get this again for a breakfast dessert along with another dish. The yummy grainy oatmeal and cold ice cream is a beautiful pairing. The oatmeal or ice cream alone are good but combined it’s a masterpiece.  It is a nice contract in texture and temperature but still complements in the simple two flavors.  Also, it is both healthy and indulgent.

Dixie Quick’s has breakfast goodness.  The highlight is the unique, delicious combination of flavors. I know I will be going back for their breakfast.  I will also have to try their dinner options one day!  I have heard that Dixie Quick’s will be moving to Council Bluffs so go while you can to the original location!
