All Dixie Cafe locations across three states are closing their doors for good.

The Little Rock based company announced the Dixie Cafe and Delta Cafe restaurants in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Oklahoma will be shut down.

Allan Roberts, CEO of Dixie Restaurants stated:

"After over 35 years in business, we have decided that we must close our restaurants. It’s a very difficult operating environment for full-service, family-oriented restaurants. We have seen declining sales combined with increasing costs that has made this difficult decision necessary.

We want to thank all our loyal patrons who have supported us over the years. We also want to thank all our long-term management and staff who have been so dedicated to our company and its mission to serve our guests. We are privileged to have been a part of so many wonderful communities and to have served so many loyal guests.”

Overall, the restaurants are closing due to declining sales.

The final day to eat at any of the 17 Dixie Restaurants is December 7th.
