  • UNHERALDED: The cheese dip and salsa at Chip’s Barbecue.

With the World Cheese Dip Competition coming up in a week and a half, my attention has been with the proud tortilla-served sauce we have claimed with Arkansas pride as our own. Yet as I go about putting together my list of favorites, I have discovered one that most people don’t talk about., Which is a shame, since it’s my favorite yellow dip.

It gets overlooked because it’s served up at a place famous for its barbecue and moreso its pies. Still, if you haven’t tried the cheese dip at Chip’s Barbecue, you have missed out.

Used to be, that dip always contained a bit of smoked beef in its makeup. This particular sitting I found no beef at all in the dip, no meat at all… and liked it even better than before.
