The Dipsy Doodle is a place for locals in Cookeville, Tennessee, near I-40 halfway between Nashville and Knoxville. It moved a few years ago from a small building hugging (sliding off?) a hillside to a larger restaurant. It's claim to fame is the giant hamburger and "mile high pies" -- the enormous meringue topping on chocolate, coconut custard, lemon, etc. pies. The place is packed Fridays and Saturdays for 'all you can eat' catfish. But breakfast is our favorite meal there. The best biscuits and gravy anywhere. I'm a 'regular' gravy guy but my wife likes the chocolate gravy. The best part? The country ham -- a very generous slice that hangs off the edges of the plate. Top all that with a very friendly, 'country' atmosphere and you'll feel at home in Tennessee's Upper Cumberland.
