I don't get it. The place stays packed to the rafters, for a boiled hot dog??? Really. It is cheap and that may be the attraction. I found the food just tolerable and have subsequently found much better hot dogs close by. I would suggest you explore other options.

I have been to Hot Dog World many times over the last several years, and have never had a bad experience. I have not had any other fast food hot dogs that even begin to compare with theirs. My favorite is the slaw dog- it is very tasty! I have had several other items on the menu as well, and... More

Best local place, well in my opinion! Always hot, fresh, and tasteful. There is always a line, which is a good sign. The mechanics been the counter is amazing to watch. Everyone knows their role and executes it with precision. I go back often!

I have been to this restaurant for about 10 years, but never wrote a reveiw about this great place. My most recent visit was around the 20th of Oct.2014. I always get the foot long dog with the works,onion rings. I live in Florida so I can come once or twice a year. Being a retired sailor and have ate... More

This place has been open forever and the hot dogs are great. Anyone in Hendersonville can tell you, this is the place to go for a hot dog. They stay busy, but it's worth the wait.

...this is the place to go. This looks like an old-fashioned drive-in, but you go in to order. A good variety of toppings for the dogs. Lots of other choices too like burgers (good) and Greek salads (also good) if you want something other than hot dogs. I noticed they also have fish sandwiches, which I will try next time.... More

This is a classic small town, one-of-a-kind spot that's a favorite with locals and tourists. The menu includes just about any variation of hot dog and toppings that anyone could reasonably expect (nothing weird, just plenty of choices :-) As hot dogs go, this is hard to beat. Everything is made fresh to order; you line up at the counter,... More
