Restaurant reviews: Dixie Bones, Woodbridge, Va.
Whether you're visiting Washington D.C. and looking to
explore deeper into the surrounding region or live locally and yearning for a
change of scenery and a new place to eat, take a ride down Route 1 in Virginia.
Located just south of D.C., about a 20 minute ride from Mount Vernon, tucked
away in Woodbridge, is a little restaurant called Dixie Bones.
southern-style barbeque whets your appetite, this is definitely the place to
go. The restaurant is
not a chain, it's a one of a kind. The sandwiches are $5.95 and up and plates are $13.95 and up. Portions are generous, many
of them are large enough to share (which is what we did on our last visit and ordered some family style sides), and the food is fantastic.
Family favorites are the ribs, pulled pork, muddy spuds and
cornbread. I've heard the pecan pie is to die for, but with each visit, I've
always been too full to give it a try. One of these days I'll have to save room
for that . . .or bring some home.
Pulled pork sandwich and cole slaw
One of my favorites - muddy spuds!
My family accidentally stumbled into this gem one evening when we
first moved to the area several years ago and we weren't disappointed. The
service is excellent, staff is friendly and food is fresh.
While we no longer live over on that side of Northern Virginia, but when down that way, chances are we will
stop in for lunch or dinner. In my experience, Dixie Bonesis a jewel in the crown of
Washington D.C. Metro area places to eat.
The restaurant can be found at 13440 Occoquan Road,
Woodbridge, VA 22191.
