Dixie Grill - West Palm Beach

If Pee Wee Herman and the Biker Gang joined together to own a bar, this would be Dixie Grill. The place is covered wall to wall, floor to ceiling, with collected goodies. Great outdoor patio seating right on US1. Friday night trivia. a huge menu of craft brews on draft. Bartender knew her shit!

This local dive bar has turned itself into hip craft beer bar with great attention to detail when it comes to the food. It's a lonely drive down US1 around Dixie Grill but the bright lights and full parking lot make this a must stop for a burger.

First let me talk about this pretzel bread with beer cheese soup appetizer... Yup! A delicious mouthful. As soon as this showed up in front of me, the couple next to me began whisper. I leaned over and told them not to be shy. This place gives us a friendly, share with your neighbor, kinda vibe... Fresh, hot,  salty bread. Smooth & cheesy soup/dip. I can go on and on but i'll let your eyes do the tasting with the photo posted. I made a lot of new friends a the bar with this appetizer!

The burger menu is solid. Fresh ground / hand-made patties. After already tasting the Beer-Cheese dip sauce I can only imaging how good the "Dixie Signature Burger" is with that on top of it... I opt'd to go with the "Black & Bleu Burger." I'm a sucker for bleu cheese. Some think its too much but I can handle it all the way through every bite. Although I'll be back for the "Fire Burger"...

The bleu cheese was so fresh. Burger was cooked perfectly! Asked for medium. Go medium. And for a burger this large thats impressive. Soft butter-grilled bun. Which is nice on a burger this large. You really want to get a good grip, squeeze together and get all the toppings in one bite. The onions got a bit lost but thats because the bleu cheese was amazing. Bacon. Mmmmm Bacon. Not overdone at all. I could do without a salad on a burger like this but placing the lettuce and tomato on the bottom is a nice way to hide it (I just slid the tomato off).

Overall Rating: Rare (1) to Well-Done (5)

I'm putting this burger on my hidden gem list for sure...
