Mama Dip's is a long-standing Chapel Hill institution renowned for its down home Southern cooking and charismatic owner and cookbook author Mildred Council, better known as Mama Dip's. Breakfast, lunch and dinners like your Mom used to make are served. Take home mementos like an autographed Mama Dip cookbook, aprons, t-shirts, mugs and sauces. It all began on a Sunday in November 1976 when Mama Dip opened her own restuarant with $64, $40 dollars went toward food and $24 was used to make change. The morning's take was used to fund the lunch meal and lunch to fund the dinner. At the end of the day Mama Dip took home $135, and the rest is history.
