The Trolley Stop’s mystery Herbie dip. Would it be a crime to eat it with a spoon? (MICHELLE FONG/STAFF)

2 dips to devour at Dayton restaurants

I love chips. I love dip. The combination is even better.

Here are two dips (with a side of chips) served up at Dayton-area restaurants that are so good you could go there just for the chips and dip and feel happy.

I wonder if they would serve these by the vat?


Where: 2033 Wayne Ave., Dayton; 937-252-2249

Description: Sure, Tank’s is known for its famous burger, grilled cheese and chili. But if you ask me, the real star of the menu is the homemade French onion dip served up with wavy chips. It’s so simple, yet so addicting. You can get your dip solo or get it as a side to a burger or sandwich. Wash it down with a cold beer and experience true happiness.

Price: $5.29 for an order of chips and dip. For 99 cents, you can add dip to eat with your burger and chips or sandwich and chips.

Where: 530 E. Fifth St., Dayton; 937-461-1101

Description: We’re not exactly sure about the secret blend of ingredients, but the Herbie dip is nothing short of amazing. The dip, which seems to be a blend of house dressing and creamy dip, comes with chips alongside sandwiches on the menu. While you’re trying the dip, you might as well pair it with a fantastic sandwich like the pulled pork on pretzel bun.

Price: Varies depending on the sandwich you order. We highly recommend the pulled pork. It made our must-eat sandwiches list.
