I live in Hampshire, going on 15 years. I can count the number of times that I’ve been to the ‘Dip’ on two hands. The food has always been very disappointing; ice chips in the ice cream, sub-par sandwiches. The chicken is okay, but it isn’t anything special.
It is beloved by longtime residents. My theory is that their fondness for Chuck N Dip is tied to happy memories as high school students, hanging out with their friends and first teenage crush. Not nessecairly the food.
