I just finished the most delicious BLT sandwich I've had in years. The bacon was perfectly crisp and flavorful - just the way I like! I'd intended to only eat half and save the other half for dinner tonight, but after one bite I knew that wasn't going to happen. 🙂 Thank you for serving up amazing lunch choices at amazing prices!read more

I've never heard of an up-cake before... but they are delicious! I went with my daughter who is 5 and was dressed like a princess. The ambiance was perfect for a casual daddy/princess lunch. Maybe a little high on the pricing... but still awesomeread more

For brunch try the pulled pork and order a separate fried egg to place on top. Great combo for Sunday morning ( abt 11 am and after). Farmers Benedict really good too.

You can get take-out and order online or by calling. They serve both breakfast and lunch. Many sweet and savory choices for breakfast. Habe great boxed lunched that come with a sandwich, a side and an upcake!read more

Their sticky bun French toast is delicious. My friends had grilled cheese and burrito which was also good. Pancakes nothing out of the blue. Upcake is just too hyped about. It just either a chocolate or a yellow cake topped with different icings according to flavors. Wished their cake would also have been according to flavorToo priced for the portion that they giveread more

I like their vegetarian sandwich and their upcakes! The portion is huge and tasty! It can get very crowded at times! They offer a deviled egg as a side, i wish there was a vegetarian substitution for that! Their side of pasta salad is bland! But overall would definitely recommend this place !read more

Located in Malvern, PA, this little franchise restaurant is a gold mine tucked in a little strip mall who's character and southern charm is so big that they have to have an outside seating area. The food was wonderful, the employees went out of their way to please us, and the story behind the business makes you want to come back again and again. I ordered the Bette's Boxed Lunch with the roast beef and provolone sandwich, on Sally Lunn bread. (Picture a hamburger bun, sheet cake style, cut in triangles.) . It comes with a deviled egg, and I chose the potato salad for my side, which was topped with a sweet pickle, and the peach "upcake" for my dessert. Washed the whole thing down with a Coca-Cola, and I was stuffed to the gills. I grew up loving PA Dutch cooking, but this southern stuff is a close second. "Momma wisely taught her daughters at an early age to learn to bake, knowing they'd need more than good looks to get them a husband". Love that! read more

Ordered daily special, a messy but delicious cheeseburger. Customers are in and out quickly and air conditioning doesn't quite cope on hot days. But it is worth it. Come before noon and there is no waiting.read more

You have to respect a diner that makes their own jelly.I thought it was a little suspect that each topping you want in your omelet is individually charged, but I got mine with bacon and cheese and the bacon was big meaty bites and they didn't skimp on the cheese. Hot gooey, and full of flavor.Despite being a 90 minute drive from where I live, my wife and I left planning to come back to the area sometime just so we could eat there again.read more

For lunch, get a box lunch (sandwich, side, deviled egg and upcake). The Thanksgiving sandwich, nutty chicken salad and Georgia BBQ smoked pork elicit raves and nostalgia. Well now, there’s a picnic in every bite.

Baked fresh daily in-house, its Upcakes are cupcakes turned upside down and frosted all over. We can’t get enough of the coconut-covered devil’s food or the lemon-frosted yellow cake.

Catered the assorted box lunches for my office, amazing food. The fresh bread never disappoints!

Close to work, great for meeting friends for lunch, fresh delicious food. You can get a fast lunch but it’s not “fast food.”

[The Barbeque Pork] had just the right amount of vinegar to provide a sharp retort to the molasses-like thick sweetness.

Whenever I decide to dine at Dixie Picnic I always know that what I order will be consistently excellent. Once again, this held true at my last visit. And there’s nothing quite like topping off my lunch with a lemon upcake!!!

– Michelle D –

Pulled pork rich and tasty, Box lunches are a priced well deal, pasta salad or potato side always fresh, lemonade addictive, salads large etc., etc. oh the bread and rolls always fresh….AND OF COURSE THE CRAB CAKE is FABULOUS!!!

Why the name
“Dixie Picnic”?

Food – even bread – is done on site. Virginia baked ham box lunch with potato salad like Mom made is the real deal. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. Great experience.

I love Dixie Picnic and when my workplace needed a lunch caterer for a Friday lunch, I recommended Dixie Picnic box lunches and unsurprisingly they were a huge hit! Everyone thought they were the best out of the catered lunches we had all summer.

I was on the go, so ordered one of my favorites, the Box Lunch Chicken salad sandwich…I was thrilled that it was delivered in minutes and then on my way to office for a very late lunch.

Everything is fresh. Upcakes are the closest thing I’ve found to my own cake recipe. But without the work on my part. 🙂
