A Famous Person Was a Regular Here
Dixon’s Famous Chili, located on Highway 40 in Independence gained exposure to the rest of the world when Life magazine featured a story about frequent customer President Harry Truman and his secret service men’s trip to the restaurant. Dixon ‘s unique Chili is served the same way it was served in 1915 on a plate with beans on the bottom, then the homemade specially seasoned chili meat. Your creativity comes into play next as an array of “chili fixins” including onions; ketchup: cheese and sour cream are available. While you will visit Dixon’s Famous Chili for its unique chili, burgers or all-you-can eat tacos, you will also be impressed with their fast and friendly atmosphere where you can grab a seat at the counter in front of the chili being dished or at a table.
