What type of food is made fresh out of the fryer, using homemade batter to produce a crunchy and moist taste when you take your first bite? Olde Dixie Fried Chicken! Olde Dixie Fried Chicken began as a restaurant dating back to 1962. The restaurant was sold to Paul Crouse in 1987 and has been a family owned business for the last 30 years. Unfortunately, the building on Orange Avenue was no longer available to the family, so they closed the restaurant in May 2016. To keep the restaurant going, they invested in a food truck and have been serving up the original Olde Dixie Fried Chicken recipe and sides since December of 2017.
