ANSTED, WV (WOAY) – A new hometown ice cream parlor and drive-in restaurant has made it’s way to Ansted.
Dubbed after the sweet Labrador Retriever and family dog, Dixie’s Drive-In is best known for their soft serve ice cream, specialty sandwiches and hot dogs.
Rescued as a puppy, Miss Dixie was in the Deligne Family for 13 years and the drive-in restaurant even offers pup cups to your sweet fur-babies.
Co-owner Bill Deligne said, “Of course we want a connection to the Humane Society and we want to encourage people to rescue those unfortunate animals out there like we did for Dixie.”
With the exception of Tuesdays, Dixie’s will be open daily to enjoy from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
“I know opening days are always tough and it’ll smooth out.” Deligne said, “I think it’ll be a good thing for the town and give another place to come and eat.”
The Deligne Family has rich ties to Ansted, as both Bill and Lisa are Midland Trail High School alumni and born and raised in the area.
Dixie’s Drive-In hopes to make their hometown proud by becoming the best drive-in restaurant in the country, while preparing and serving the best food possible for each customer.
Pastor Herman Jones was among the many to try Dixie’s Drive-In on their first day. He said, “This is something we really needed in our town for a long time and our people are so happy they’re here.”
You can head in and enjoy the Dixie Dog Footlong for only $3.99, among many other menu options.
And although sweet Dixie is no longer here, we’re all sure she would have adored the love…. And especially the hot dogs.
