This place should be a landmark. The hot dogs are great! The lines out the door speaks volumes. Put this on your trip list. Best hotdogs in town!

It's a hotdog. Nothing over the top. Nothing spectacular. However, others apparently take their dogs seriously. Line to order was long and slow, but the peeps kept coming in.

If you've been to Hendersonville and don't know about HOT DOG WORLD ... well you just don't know! Not just the best hot dogs, but awesome burgers, barbecue, onion rings, fries, shakes and salads. You won't be disappointed with anything you try there! They are a Hendersonville icon!

This is a Hendersonville staple! We love the new outdoor covered eating area. They serve hot dogs any way you want them but my favorite is the patty melt with a side of tater tots!

Everything we had was a 4.5 on the scale. They must be doing it right. Most of the day there are lines waiting to place there order. Small dining area, so the order line winds around inside. It does have a area outside. The line moved fairly fast.

This is strange, but I LOVE Hot Dog World! For all the people in the long line, this is not strange. What is strange is I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian! Hot Dog World? Vegetarian? Well, it's not their specialty. But imagine my delight when I saw they have a vegetarian dog (also other entries like veggie burger, Greek salad). But... More

I stopped for a quick chilli dog at lunch time. The self service ordering was quick. There were a lot of workers in the small service area! There's indoor eating plus a large covered outdoor area. There's a drive thru also. The food was adequate for $1.50. I would go back.

We finally tried this place for a quick lunch. The restaurant was packed, parking was tricky, but the hotdogs and fries were good, the line was long but they were so well organized the line moved quickly. We sat outside which was a mistake because the smell of the car fumes bothered us. I would recommend sitting inside if you... More
