We drove up from Kingsport, TN. My spouse had never experienced Dip Dogs before. I got a hotdog (w/chili mustard and onion), dip dog and onion rings. My spouse got a dip dog, burger and fries. I liked the dip dogs, fries and onion rings. I didn't care for the burger or hotdog. All of the employees that we noticed... More

My wife's Doctor told us not to miss Dip Dog when in the Marion area. As we drove past Marion on Highway 81 around lunch time I remembered Doc's advice and put Dip Dog in my GPS. When we arrives I knew this was going to be fun. The restaurant looks like an old "general store". At the counter, we... More

This place never disappoints! We always stop here every time we are in town. We moved from this town 19 years ago and have yet to find a place that compares. We always get frozen dip dogs to take home!

Any place that's been operating over 50 years continuously has got to be good. Saw some were complaining about the service but it was fine when we were there. FF and OR are as good as the dip dogs which are obviously the main draw. They are hand made and dipped. A Marion legend!

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
