Mildred Council aka “Mama Dip’s”, Owner and Founder

Mildred “Mama Dip” Council founded the now-iconic eatery on November 15, 1976 by request of a realtor who sought a hero to save a failing restaurant. With just $64 to her name, Mildred bought groceries for her first meal to be served. She reinvested those profits and her legacy grew from there.

Life, as Mildred explains, is like a pumpkin seed. A single seed can flower forth bountiful harvests, incredible memories, and limitless potential.
