Great food for a small price

I enjoy eating here. The food is always great and we get full without breaking the bank. Also if you order from here you get a discount next door at Yogurt Word which is also a great place

Loved this place. It is worth waiting in line to get the hot dog. Wish I had gone back for another meal while in Hendersonville!

It doesn't matter how long the line is people wait for the traditional NC hot dog! A jumbo dog all the way or a corny dog are the way I roll! Don't forget the rings or fries with that but get a 1/2 order cause a full order will feed 3!

Menu choices excellent. Something for everyone. Fun experience. Always a line which moves quickly. Cash or check only. Our friends from England really enjoyed the experience.

We love it here! A Hendersonville staple. Always crowded, but they move the line! Love the milkshakes and Greek Salad. My daughter loves the soft ice cream. Cheese fries make me happy. Will continue to visit again, and again!

Best place to get a dog or burger and their salads are great. So economical. No need to break the bank to eat here. Everything on the menu is great. Never a disappointment here.

Great hot dogs, great salad, great fries....have been here three times now and each time the food is hot, fresh and tasty. Don't be put off by the long lines...the kitchen knows what they're doing and the line moves pretty fast. They only accept cash or checks, so don't forget that.

This place is just fun and an experience not to be missed. We have been here dozens of times, driving to this lovely mountain town of Hendersonville just to eat there and have the hot dog experience. Yes, they have other foods but why bother? All of life is a hot dog and Steve, the owner, and his hustling staff... More

I know, I know it's only a hot dog! But the foot long jumbo with the works (chili, cheese and coleslaw) took me back to Chicago "dawg joints" that I frequented growing up. Although the hot dog did not have the "snap" that Vienna red hots have, I enjoyed the meal including fresh fries and a soft drink (pop) for... More
