Dixie House Restaurant

You've got until 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29 to get some home cookin' at Dixie House in Dallas. 

The restaurant, which has been located in Lakewood just shy of 40 years, is closing after dinner service on Jan. 29. 

If you go, be prepared to stay awhile. The beloved restaurant has been on more than a two-hour wait during dinnertime in the past week.

Dixie House's owners had recently been paying month-by-month rent while its parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the Lakewood Advocate says. Some of the employees have worked at Dixie House for decades, the Advocate reports, which makes this news a pretty big bummer. The owners declined to comment to The Dallas Morning News about the closure.

Dixie House is famous for its blue-ribbon fried chicken, fried chicken livers and coconut cream pie. All come with a (free) side of nostalgia.

Dixie House is not affiliated with Dixie House Cafe, a comfort food restaurant with a similar name. Dixie House Cafe's five locations -- in Euless, Saginaw and three in Fort Worth -- remain open.
