More Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives book
By Guy Fieri

Dixie Quicks Magnolia Room
Est. 1995 • The Great Melting Pot of Handmade Food

One the things you’ve learned, no doubt, on Triple D is to slow it down and keep your eyes peeled, because you’d never want to cruise by a joint you didn’t notice, but you didn’t want to miss. Like here on Leavenworth Street.

There’s no sign, so you’ve got to be in the know. This is eclectic, real food done by a serious chef, René Orduña, who cooked all across the country before coming back to Omaha, where he started out in his parents’ Mexican restaurant. He’s got a little Cajun, a little cosmopolitan, a little Latino influence, a little of everything…

The book is available at Dixie Quicks.

The Long Road to Lincoln
Story and Photographs By Mike Whye

“We started our trip at Dixie Quicks, a rather funky restaurant with excellent fresh food at the corner of 19th and Leavenworth in Omaha. The chalkboard in the main dining room lists the always-changing menu. “If it’s not fresh, it’s not on the board,” says co-owner Rob Gilmer who notes some of the foods come from the gardens near the outside seating area. “Our food is comfort food – Southern, Cajun with some Tex-Mex.”

Gilmer strongly suggests reservations. “We want people to come knowing they have a place to sit rather than having to wait like one may have to do in other restaurants,” he said.

Occupying what had been a row of five stores on Leavenworth, Dixie Quicks uses three of the spaces as art galleries until winter when one of them is used to offset the lack of outside seating. Meredith and Alex liked the unisex bathrooms where ink markers are provided for visitors to add their messages to the witty observations and comments already there. The one that I love best reads: “Just because I accept you as you are doesn’t mean I have given up all hope for your improvement.” Possibly written by a woman about a man?

Leaving Dixie Quicks, we angled north and west to enter…”
