I stopped in to NIP N SIP Drive-In (2603 N. East Street) right after 1st lunch but before lunch #2. I wasn’t setting out to create a new lunch, but this meal fit in quite nicely on this Lansing, Michigan jaunt.
NIP N SIP is the home of the Hammy Sammy (their locally famous sandwich creation made of ham, melted Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise). I was in a coney dog and olive burger kind of mindset, so no Hammy Sammy for me today.
Marcela shared whatever madness I ordered, which ended up being a frosty mug of their housemade root beer, chili cheese fries, a coney dog, a double-deck cheeseburger, and finally an olive burger.
I tried all the grub in order of the pictures below.

The chili cheese fries and coney dog were solid. They were perfect and hit the spot.
I’ve only been a root beer fan for a handful of years, but you can’t beat root beer when it’s made in-house. The NIP N SIP root beer came in its natural habitat of a cold frosty beer mug, winner-winner chicken dinner. I did not have any chicken, for the record.

The double-decker with cheese was excellent, and this could have been the right time to end this great visit, BUT their beauty, the olive burger, was on deck. The olive burger is not made of olives but is a burger topped with a mayo-based sauce with diced olives. Look, olive burgers aren’t for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Luckily, you have the double cheeseburger (it’s a Double Decker Hamburger) to fall back on if the olive burger isn’t your speed. Another essential thing to point out is the impressive meat crust on the outside of their burgers. They are drool-worthy.
Last Note: I made a giant mess of myself while eating at Nip N Sip, but that’s ok cause it was delicious.
