1.) Herbie Dip

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.

Where: The Trolley Stop, 530 E. 5th St., Dayton

Price: Varies, depending on the sandwich you order. We recommend the pulled pork.

2.) French Onion Dip

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.

Where: Tank’s Bar & Grill, 2033 Wayne Ave., Dayton
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.

3.) Queso Fundido 

This signature favorite from our top-voted Mexican food spot features spicy Spanish pork sausage with a blend of creamy, melty white cheese sauce. Their bean dip ($5.20) is also incredible.

Where: El Toro Bar & Grill, various locations

Price: $6.95
