Horace and Dickies opens this week at 6912 Fourth Street NW

From the Old Takoma Business Association:

Washington, DC Institution Opens New Location at 6912 4th Street, NW, Washington, DC

Horace and Dickies is the latest addition to the growing number of independent restaurants on Old Takoma’s Main Street. Using the formula that has been successful at the original Horace and Dickies, an institution on the H St Corridor in Washington, DC for over 20 years, the new location will open this week at 6912 4th Street, NW in the Takoma neighborhood of Washington, DC.

Owner Simone Shannon, with the blessing from her Dad, Richard “Dickie” Shannon, will be expanding the family business and bringing the same favorite menu to Old Takoma which includes fried fish, shrimp, crab cakes and chicken plus soul satisfying sides like collard greens, macaroni and cheese, french fries, potato salad and slaw. Homemade cakes and pies round out the menu as well as a new addition to the Takoma menu - fish tacos.

Known for their reasonable prices, large portions and quality food, Horace and Dickies has attracted not only the Washington, DC community, but also Adam Richman and Man v Food on The Travel Channel which also helped to develop a steady flow of visiting tourists.

I've reached out to ask if they have a specific opening day nailed down, and will update this post when I obtain that information.

Update: Opening day will be either Thursday or Friday, according to Laura Barclay of the Old Takoma Business Association.


  1. I was lamenting my move from the H Street Neighborhood to Manor Park. It's nice to know the Horace and Dickies will be following. Now with Fish Tacos, Nice!

  2. Went there on Saturday, salivating for a nice hot Horace and Dickies fish sandwich and there was a sign on the door that the frish fryer was being prepared. I was totally disappointed!!! Is the fryer working yet???

  3. The fryer is working - I was there yesterday :)
