If you want any information about the little town of Dandridge, this is the place to visit. It is still about the same as it was when I visited there when I was in high school - 1952.

I took my best friend here for her birthday. Such a good place to grab lunch and the old style soda fountain is great. The Bible Burger had a Friday special of $6 for the burger and chips and we got shakes.

A walk thru' time as it is the old time soda fountain experience...a great treat for the kids and those of us who are still kids-at-heart. Love the milkshakes and they also have great burgers.

Great time to travel TN. Fall is in the trees but not the air- it is 86*. Having a chocolate shake at Tinsley Bible Drugstore will cool me off!

I lived in Dandridge for many years and never took the time to eat at Tinsley-Bible. The lunch counter is only open during the day and not on weekends, so I'm sure that was why I couldn't make it until now. The Bible burger was delicious but the milkshake was the real hit. I love this very small place and... More

The Bible burger was good but I think $6 is a bit steep for just a burger. Now the milkshake... OMG, it was so good and worth the $3 and change. The butter pecan milkshake was filled with pecans!!

We had heard they made great burgers here, so we finally made it out to get one. The grill is only on during the week, but on Saturday they have their deli sandwiches available. The service was great and the setting takes you back to an old-time soda-fountain type place. I have also heard they make great hand-dipped sundaes and... More

Tinsley Bible Drug Store is a walk into the past. Great breakfast and lunch spot. A lot of old history is the downtown area of the second oldest town in Tennessee.

I'm getting hungry just thinking about Peggy fixing me Bible Burger, A hotdog maybe two, & sweet tea. Oh yeah, homemade malts, shakes (gotta try the real peanut butter and chocolate shake).
