Bobbie's Dairy Dip question

We moved away to SoCal from Nashville ten years ago, but I'm still remembering the one and only thing that made me drop by the Dairy Dip whenever I had the chance: their Polish sausage. It was not sourced locally, but was the juicy, faintly smoky sausage I grew up with in Illinois, with finely-ground pink meat and little yellow mustard seeds here and there. I found that I could buy it in bulk at the butcher shop behind Bobbie's, if I got there early enough, since they ordered it from out of town. And they (and Bobbie's) refused to say WHERE they got it...

Now of course what was the butcher shop is now Miel Restaurant, and while I became a huge fan of that place on our first (and so far only) visit, I'm wondering about that sausage. Did it stay or did it go? Anyone?

  1. I don't know. For my money, Bobbie's has gone WAY downhill since it was sold several years ago. It's not even the same place anymore.

    I do love Miel though.

      Too bad about Bobbie's - aside from its function as a rare oasis in that neighborhood, and the aforementioned sausages, it didn't really have that much downhill left, in my estimation. But I think the existence of Miel makes up for lots of things. Glad there's some agreement on that.

        Add more Miel love from me. I think we switched spots since I moved from Pasadena to Nashville almost 2 years ago, but as a newbie to Bobbie's I love it -- for what it is. A dipped cone and a nasty greasy burger are the staples of summer to me, and I am glad Bobbie's can provide!

    2. unfortunately...bobbie doesn't own the dip any more. she sold it and you are right gone way down.
