Bobbie's Dairy Dip Opening Second Location Downtown

Bobbie’s Dairy Dip, the venerable West Nashville spot for ice cream and burgers, is staking out a second location downtown.

Bobbie’s, which has operated in the same stand on Charlotte Pike for more than 60 years, is working to open a new location in the former Wise Burgers space on Fourth Avenue North.

Sam Huh, who bought Bobbie’s in 2006 and is also the general manager, said he was motivated to open the new location partly as a way to serve his customers and employees all year round. (Bobbie’s closes for three months every winter.)

And he said being downtown will allow him not only to tap hungry office workers but also give tourists Bobbie’s brand of Nashville-grown, non-franchise burger experience.

In addition to providing real seating in a cafe setting (the original Bobbie’s offers only outdoor picnic tables), the new location will serve beer. But “it won’t be a pub,” Huh said. Just three or so local beers will be available on tap.

Huh, who also owns J&J’s Market & Cafe, said the menu at the new place will feature the popular items Bobbie’s has served for ages: burgers, fries (including the sweet potato version), luscious soft-serve ice cream, sundaes and milkshakes.

Bobbie’s Dairy Dip Downtown is scheduled to open Sept. 24 at 223 Fourth Ave. N.

A version of this story appeared in the Food Biz column in today's print edition of The City Paper an online in the Nashville Post.
