we have stopped at this restaurant several times when in town, waitstaff is always fast and friendly, food was good for a so called fast food place, not something we would stop at every time but once in a while it gives us a break from fancy places

Remember when the burgers were less than 20 cents. Food is good and quick service. You want flash back to the 50s and 60s, this is the place.

We went here after an afternoon game. The food is good old fashion coney food. It brought back good memories and who doesn't love a good coney dog?

Elvis, pink cadillac, ice cream. It's been a while since these things were common, but go here, dine in, and they are brought back to life. The Coney dogs are a staple as are the bitty burgers. The service is friendly, only downside is that it is a little expensive for the type of food. But the pixie is the... More

This is seriously the coolest place I have ever been. I went in thinking it would just be a little diner with some burgers. Boy was I wrong. The atmosphere is amazing. All the workers are super nice and always have a smile on their faces. I love to collect shirts of places where I have been so I asked... More

It is nice to see some things do not change. Continues to be just as good as it was when we were CMU students in the 70's.

Great 50s diner that is the actual place from the 50s. My dad remembers Pixie from college in the late 50s - early 60s. No my son is at CMU and we still go to Pixie almost every time we are in Mt. Pleasant and it is always good. Service, food, price and cleanliness always excellent. This is the only... More

We love Pixie!. My husband is originally from Michigan and visited Pixie as a child. When we travel back to Michigan, we never leave without eating there at least once. We love the Bitty Burgers and Coney Dogs. It's a great family restaurant. Always a favorite with our family.

Pixie's is a 50's style diner-drive-in, with the decor- and food to support it. We found the food excellent and reasonably priced. The ranch chicken grinder was wonderful and my husband loved his honey's. The shake was wonderful too. I loved the devote, including the Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Elvis cutouts in some booths, the drive-in sound boxes, juke... More

Description
Travel back to the days of cruisin', coney dogs, neon and juke box rock n' roll. The Pixie is fun with great food-fast! A deep tradition , quality and community involvement all add up to the spirit of the Pixie. The Pixie Restaurant opened in 1948 and was the first drive-in restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. At that time, the operation consisted of curb service with a complete menu. "Car Hops" would wait on customers in their cars and bring their food to them on trays which attached to the window. Today, the Pixie Restaurant has the 50's/60's neon look and a dining room with a 50's juke box, memorabilia and the same great food and service the Pixie has made famous for nearly 60 years.
