Forest Lambert was the owner of the Dixie Boy. In October of 2010, a feral dog turned human by Tor Magnusson's Trouble raided the Dixie Boy, tearing apart displays and looking for food. Lambert called the cops, and Audrey Parker and Nathan Wuornos responded to the call. Parker attempted to talk the man down, but Lambert interrupted angrily, and the man lost it, viciously biting Lambert's neck, killing him.
Later that month, a prison van transporting Duncan Fromsley from Shawshank State Prison stopped at the Dixie Boy to refuel. Jordan McKee attacked the guards in order to break Fromsley out of police custody.
- The Dixie Boy is also the name of a truck stop in Maximum Overdrive, a 1986 film based on the short story "Trucks" by Stephen King.
