is located in Solano County, not too far off from San Francisco, with a population of just over sixteen thousand. It is perhaps best known for the May Fair, which also happens to be the longest running yearly fair in the entire state. It's held just prior to Mother's Day at the Dixon Fairgrounds. If you're visiting the 95620 zip code, try some of these great dining and drinking establishments in the area!

Mary's Pizza Shack

Mary's Pizza Shack is an old fashioned pizza restaurant that is both family friendly and very comfortable! The pizza is just so good. Many say it's the best in town. They also have wonderful pastas with very flavorful sauces, incredible salads with delicious dressings, and very fresh bread. All the Italian favorites that you'd expect to find are here. But what really makes this place a winner is the high quality and old fashioned service. You can't find service like that anywhere else. You'll be able to locate Mary's Pizza Shack on Ary Lane near the intersection with Market Lane. Very highly recommended!

Cattlemens Steakhouse

Cattlemen's Steakhouse has got to be one of the finest steakhouses in the Dixon area. We are all about steaks, and we wouldn't recommend it to you if we didn't think it was one of the best ever. If you're the type who just loves to sit down with a perfect steak and a baked potato that's cooked just right, you'll be very pleased with what they serve you here. It's beautiful for special occasions and romantic dates, and it's also very appropriate for family get togethers or intimate dinners with friends. You can find Cattlemen's Steakhouse at 250 Cattlemens Court! Don't miss it!

Chevy's Fresh Mex

Chevy's Fresh Mex is our essential Mexican spot in Dixon! We absolutely love their super cheap margaritas! You'll wonder how they can pack so much flavor into it for that price. There's a great kids menu here too, which makes it perfect for those family get togethers. The mole enchiladas are fantastic, and we really enjoy the quesadillas too. The decor is quirky and fun, and we'd say the same about the servers. Very friendly and cool. You can locate Chevy's Fresh Mex on Ary Lane near the intersection with Market Lane.

Bud's Pub & Grill

wins our pick for best pub in Dixon! We can't imagine coming into the area and not stopping at this classic spot. The staff is young, fun, and friendly, and the atmosphere is classic and authentic. We love the moose head over the bar, and all the top shelf bottles that they feature here. The beer prices are great, and they've got a wide selection of them on draft. They've also got lots of happy hour specials to help you save a few bucks. Nothing but good times, and great food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner too! You can find Bud's Pub & Grill at 100 South 1st Street!


Denny's, we're not going to lie about it, is our classic after-the-bar stop. When you're nursing that hangover, there is nothing better than a Grand Slam, or a Moons Over My Hammy, to make you feel better. Pair it with an orange juice and a coffee and you're good to go. It's also a great stop for breakfast on the weekends. Everybody knows this place, everybody knows the menu by heart, and everybody loves it. How could we not recommend it here? The Dixon Denny's location can be found on Stratford Avenue between North Lincoln Street and Commercial Way.

IHOP Restaurant

IHOP Restaurant, like the one that we previously mentioned, is an essential breakfast spot as far as we're concerned! They've got the best pancakes and waffles around, and great breakfast meats and eggs... What some don't realize is that it's not just breakfast here though! We really love their hamburgers and steaks. The service at this particular location is excellent, and the ambiance is classic IHOP. You can find IHOP Resteaurant on Ary Lane near the intersection with Pitt School Road.

Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits

Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits is certainly a fast food restaurant, but it's one that we have to recommend to you here because of their incredible New Orleans-inspired food! We love their crisp fried chicken, their seasoned fries, their Louisiana Hot Sauce, their Jambalaya! It's all so good! These buckets of chicken will make you forget all about those other chicken guys! Seriously, this is the best fried chicken around. Nothing short of addictive! You can find Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits at 170 Dorset Drive.

Buckhorn Bar

Buckhorn Bar is one of the coolest and most diverse bars in the Dixon area, with a crowd that represents every age from twentysomething to fiftysomething. We always hear about how safe this bar is, and on the many occasions that we have visited, we've never witnessed a single fight. They've ot wonderful sirloin dinners here, and on the cheap too! And bottles of wine for half price at certain times. We love it on comedy night too. You can find Buckhorn Bar at 830 North Adams Street.

Peking Tokyo Restaurant & Sake Bar

Peking Tokyo Restaurant & Sake Bar has got to be the best spot in Dixon for sushi! It's romantic, with cozy booths and a very nice sake bar to sit at, and they've got all your favorite rolls here. The rice is delicious, and the seaweed is always so good tasting here. The selection of sake is noteable, and the service is truly outstanding. You will really enjoy your time here. They've got wonderful servers here too who are really attentive and caring about your needs. You can find Peking Tokyo Restaurant & Sake Bar at 119 North 1st Street!

Punjabi Dhaba

Punjabi Dhaba is almost as fun to eat at as it is to say! We love this restaurant. The Indian food here is a cut above the rest, really flavorful and perfectly cooked. Everything is made to order, so it's superbly fresh. We particularly love their naan, and their salads and desserts are wonderful too. They've got a buffet on certain days, but it's not always a buffet. It doesn't matter which one they're doing when you go though, because everything is high quality whether it's regular restaurant style or served banquet style! All hot, fresh, and flavorful. You can find Punjabi Dhaba at 7800 Batavia Road. Very highly recommended!
