More than just hot dogs...but the "dogs" are great!

I rarely eat foods that aren't considered healthy, but like everyone else, I occasionally get a craving for something off the healthy food list. Hot Dog World had an amazing number of choices, from healthy Greek Salads and Gyros, to hamburgers and of course, their famous hot dogs. Today I tried... read more

Enjoyed this place alot. Feel like you are in a real locals spot that has been here for a long time. Lots of choices to choose from and they all look good. Hot dogs are tasty and prices are not amazing but reasonable.

Hot dog world is a regular dinner or lunch for us. always fresh and hot, with smiling faces, great service and an at home feel. Best place around especially for folks with young kids, but then who can resist a good hotdog?

I enjoyed all the different things that I ate here! I especially like the hot dogs with mustard, chili, and cheese! The fries are great,too! Milkshakes are outta this world! When you´re done pigging out, run next door to the yogurt shop and get some yogurt with all the toppings you want! You pay by the ounce! (or the pound,... More

Not only hot dogs but a varied menu. Chili was hearty but uninteresting. Hot dog was simply OK. Same for my friend. Absolutely nothing special. Would give it another try with something else. My friend said he's consider his hot dog above average. I personally like natural casing dogs and would happily pay the price.

This place has been around serving fun good fast food for years. I brought my grown daughter here as a child with friends when they still had car hops! Not fine dining but good solid dogs!

I have driven past this place for years, always in a hurry. Now I know I should have stopped earlier. Excellent hot dogs, but what a surprise to find excellent Greek salads, and other offerings such a burgers. A second visit days later on a Saturday found a 25 minute wait to order, but well worth it. Prices are very... More

I love dives and drive ins and if I can find one when I'm out adventuring that is where I will eat. This place is so unique. It takes me back to older days and simpler times. The kids got chicken, I got a burger and John got a hot dog so they have a wide variety of food, not... More

If you like a good hot dog, fries, onion rings and such, you would be a fool to pass this up. But, you might have to park a block away to get in line and it is clean, wonderful and perfect! I will go every chance I get!

For those who have had a hot dog experience at "Coney Island" in Cumberland, Md., this will take you back. Once you've had a Coney Island dog...you just can't get it out of your memory. The same applies to Hot Dog World. Try to visit before 11:30 A and after 1:30 P. Otherwise, finding a parking space is a circus.... More
