This is the ONLY place in town to get a hot dog. The menu has a great variety for fast food. Chuckwagon, BBQ, Hot ham and Turkey, grilled rueben, home made soup and chili. This is just a sample of what is on the menu. The owners Steve and family are great people, the have been in town at least... More

Food quality - excellent Quantity - great for price Price: very reasonable Indoor and outdoor seating. Overall experience - excellent although wait can be lengthy at peek meal times - worth the wait!

They serve an excellent hot dog. I highly recommend their footlong slaw dog that comes with mustard, onions, chili and of course, slaw. And, an order of their fries and sweet tea are mandatory in my opinion. Indoor and outdoor seating, friendly efficient staff, but don't wait until Sunday to try them. Closed on Sunday.

You can't beat the price and while some "value" restaurants are disgusting, this is not one. It's clean on the inside, and the food is well done. The chili sauce is made from scratch, the fries are hot and crispy, and the shake was great. I would definitely return. Word of warning: it's BUSY! But the line moves fast. Be... More

It's a bit unusual and from appearances you may pass it by. Don't. Food is very good. We have had several of their selections, Rubens, slaw dogs, Greek salad, and more. The best thing is the prices, great value. Highly recommend. Give it a try.

After driving by for a milk shake and seeing a line out the door we decided come back for lunch the next day. Another line the next day but it moves fairly fast. The burgers, dogs, and milkshakes were worth the small wait. Plenty of food, great value, and good food. If your in the mood for burgers or dogs... More

A local favorite with a perpetual line out the door, this was a mandatory first stop when my wife and I rolled into Hendersonville. The menu features traditional drive-thru fare ( hotdogs, hamburgers, shakes, etc.) but the hot dogs are the star of the show. We had 2 of the Slaw Dogs (cole slaw, chili, onions, and mustard) and 2... More
