Dip Dog is a local Smythe County favorite that borders on the legendary. I had the Dip Dog and some onion rings. The Dip Dog, is their version of the corn dog...only extraordinary. Personally, I would have liked it more if it had been a beef wiener but the quality of the batter is what adds to its distinctive flavor.... More

The dip dogs are awesome worth a try if you've never had one. Their burgers are standard run-of-the-mill Food Service burgers. They used to make their burgers from scratch but not anymore. A little bit pricey as well for what you get.

This is a local mom and pop place that used to have amazing corn dogs, made with their own secret recipe and super fries and shakes. Unfortunately, their standards have dropped. The food tastes reheated, the fries are stale and the service is pitiful.

I've been aware of Dip Dog for many years, but had never stopped by until today. The guy taking our order was extremely friendly and offered several suggestions when he learned it was our first visit. Because we were first time customers, we each received complementary Dip Dogs, cup, sticker and ink pen. We were also given a sample of... More

We stopped here in Saturday afternoon October 15th on our way to a band competition. Pros: The food is just what one would expect from a walk up corn dog/burger hut. Delicious, retro, unique, etc. they even have bumper stickers and t shirts to commemorate your experience. The original dip digs melt in your mouth. Cons: the service is very... More

Atop a hill in Marion, is one of the typical 50's style drive up and walk up restaurants. Service and food were good, restaurant had a wide variety of items. Do think that the establishment should have things signed a bit better. We were unaware of a dining area until we left, so we ate in the car. Seemed to... More

This is a little hamburger stand. The burgers, hotdogs, shakes, etc., are all good. If you get a dip dog while it's fresh out, it's great. If it has set for awhile, it will just taste like a corndog. This isn't a fancy place, but it's good.

Went out of our way to try this place only to find a hand written note that said "closed for vacation". Nothing on their website showed that they would be closed the third week in June.

We stopped here on our way home from a trip. The girls working the counter were incredibly rude to not only us but the gentleman that ordered before us. They acted like it was a bother having customers. Then to add insult to injury the hotdogs were just plain nasty. The dog part tasted mushy, not sure if why. My... More
