“Good burgers and fast service”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We eat here a lot and its almost always good. The food isn't very consistent and I think they make burgers ahead of time during busy periods and it tastes like the burgers have been on the grill too long. Milk shakes and tater-tots are excellent.

“Best burger and love those "big-wheel" ice cream sandwiches”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Unless you're "lucky" get ready to form a line to the drive-in window to place your order. Get that burger just the way you like -- pickle, lettuce, vine-ripe tomato ...... The line moves fast and just keeps forming. It is definitely the burger to beat!

“Just as good as I remembered!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The double cheeseburger was phenomenal! Potato gems are still my absolute favorite way to eat potatoes and the Dipper does it right. The cherry coke was really refreshing, as well as the vanilla shake. The Dipper has been there forever, and if the line of cars waiting to get in is any measure, they will continue on......

“A Gem for fast food & Ice cream”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I have been eating at the Big Dipper for years. They are the stand by solution for when I do not wish to fix something to eat or need to satisfy a need for ice cream. The ice cream sandwiches are a necessary home freezer item during the summer. I will return!
