posted: 12/07/2017 4:30 a.m. Comments 2

Wednesday was the last day of operation for all nine Dixie Cafe restaurants in Arkansas and eight Dixie Cafe and Delta Cafe restaurants in Oklahoma and Tennessee. Dixie Restaurants Inc. CEO Allan Roberts said Monday in a news release, while thanking patrons, management and staff, that "After over 35 years in business, we have decided that we must close our restaurants. It is a very difficult operating environment for full-service, family-oriented restaurants.
