Dixie Quicks Ratings and Reviews
Brunch hot spot with very good food at reasonable prices. You get a lot of food for the money. Clearly a thoughtful staff and owner who takes time to make the experience all positive. The only downside is they are a bit slow because it is packed so don't come for a quick bite!
The food was good but the service left a lot to be desired. When I told the host we had a reservation at 6, he asked of it was for 2 or 6 people (must have misunderstood me). The host told us we could pick from two tables against the wall & then stood by one, leading us to believe we had to sit there. It was missing 1 chair which we had to drag from a near by table because the host just left. When we ordered sodas, we were brought 2 12 ounce cans. If you are being charged $2 for soda, you expect it to be fountain. When we were brought our sodas by the host (not even our waitress) he asked if we still wanted our water. We had to ask for refills on water while other tables had theirs filled without having to ask. We also had to ask for silverware while others already had it at their tables when they sat down. Very disappointing for our anniversary dinner.
Mrs. Spork and I have been meaning to try this place for some time and finally made the trip from Omaha for a date night. The staff was very friendly and we had a nice chat with the owner. The server knew the menu well and made sound recommendations although our drinks took quite a while to arrive. The steak was perfectly cooked and quite tasty. House made cherry cobbler was a treat. Will definitely cross the river again with Spork Jr. this time and try the blackened salmon.
I love going to Dixie Quicks. It’s worth the drive over the bridge to Council Bluffs. The food was back to its original quality and it seems like the restaurant is firing on all cylinders. I had the Huevos Rancheros and my friend had the Cactus Eggs. Everything was cooked to perfection. I’m happy we went.
We had family in town and Dixie Quicks is one of our favorite breakfast spots, so we took them there. We love the French toast and eggs Benedict, and they were still good this time, but we felt the quality just wasn't quite what we were used to. Our food was not hot. I'm sure we will be back again for another try!
Super good food with twists on Mexican, Cajun and Standard American fare. Superb chilaquilles that are served at all times (along with anytime breakfast) are a nice alternative to traditional lunch/dinner fare. I enjoyed the pan fried catfish with knockout greens and excellent red beans and rice. I will be back....again...and again.
Fun atmosphere and great breakfast choices! Expect a wait unless you have made a reservation on Open Table. Servers are attentive and fun. Prices are on the high end for similar foods elsewhere. We love it and will definitely return on any future trips to Council Bluffs. Dixie Quicks was on our return list from a previous visit.
We had a fabulous meal! The two waitresses Izzy and Emmie were personable and helpful. I had black beans, collard greens and Salmon and my husband had the black beans, collard greens and Catfish. I am salivating thinking of them. The beans and collard greens had a tangy burn and the fish was done to perfection. We had one slice of cornbread with butter and honey that was perfectly baked with a firm crust, like it was baked in an iron pan. It was moist and delicious. I topped my meal off with a local beer. I wish I lived in the area so I could eat here all the time!
That's the excuse I use when I return to a favorite place in a short period of time; and the friend who went with me hadn't been to Dixie Quick's in over a year. As always, we were greeted and seated promptly, having made a brunch reservation. The atmosphere is very casual, with friendly staff and attentive but not hovering service. My only observation was that the air conditioning didn't seem to be putting out much cool air. But ceiling fans kept the air moving. My friend chose the eggs Benedict and pronounced the Hollandaise as among the best she's had anywhere...and I ordered the huevos rancheros, very filling with the layers of corn chips, eggs cooked perfection to 'over medium', black beans and a ranchero sauce with generous chunks of pork that was fork-tender. We both chose the grits as our side, also well-prepared. Overall, it couldn't have been a nice dining experience. If you haven't been there since one of the co-owners, Rene Orduna, died, you'll find the menu expanded, all good adds IMHO.
The service was terrible. It was fine at first but once we got our food, they didn't come back until it was time to ask about dessert and bring our check. We had to ask for our water to be refilled 3 times and finally got up from the table and tracked down someone to help refill our drinks and the restaurant was not even crowded. It was 11:30 on a thursday. The food was not worth the terrible service. Just average meal. Nothing spectacular and prices were a little pricey.
Food was amazing, but they were short staffed and it took almost 45 minutes to get our food and 15 minutes to get our check after we were finished. We were a little late for our concert. Not our servers fault, he was running the whole 90 minutes we were in there, but had way too many tables, some of the 10 people or more. We will try it again.
We had a wonderful Father's Day brunch with my family and my Mom and Dad. We have two small kids and it was very family friendly. Food was great, service was also great. Other than it was a bit loud the atmosphere was upbeat and energetic! I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family for sure!
Our meal included: shrimp gumbo, grilled roast beef sandwich, eggs, homefries, and bowtie pasta with asparagus & prosciutto. The shrimp gumbo was great and the bowtie pasta was good – the rest of the meal was average at best. The prices were reasonable & for 6:30 p.m. on Friday the place was relatively quiet. Service was okay, but considering the lack of crowd – I expected better. Glad we tried the restaurant, but won’t be back & with so many other great restaurants in the area we wouldn’t recommend to others.
Dixie Quicks is the best brunch in America, possibly the world! The staff are the friendliest and the food is always delicious -- my favorite brunch mix of Southern, Southwestern/Mexican and French. The flavors are rich and perfect every time. And I adore the art gallery and decor, and Rob (the owner) is the greatest!! A definite must-visit and enjoy. Great for vegetarians, and I highly recommend french toast for the table!!
