Patty Melt for me!

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

We visited based on other reviews and regretted it quickly. We wanted something cheap and fast. It is cheap and relatively fast. There is a line (which I understand there is always a line). The line moves at a reasonable pace. They take no plastic, only cash or checks. There is an ATM but it wasn't working when we were... More

Order it, and you will remember how wonderful Dreamsicles are! Top it off with 2 original dogs (mustard, homemade chili sauce, onions), and even without the fries or onion rings, you will be thankful to live in the U.S. This place is the epitome of American food, YUM!

This is a local treasure. The best hot dogs and hamburgers in town! Surprisingly, a great place for a Greek salad. The shakes and sweet tea are pretty good too. Can't say that I've ever had anything bad here. Worth the wait in line!
