Top Hot Dogs!

This is an older place and maybe 10 or so booths. It was originally the A&W root beer place near the intersection of Sprague and Waughtown. These are not your

I'm a local but somehow missed out on this gem, until now that is! It's not far off Hwy 52 Waughtown exit on a side street. It's a time capsule because you feel like you've stepped back in time when you walk through the doors. The place was hopping when I walked in and I was very glad I called... More

We happened upon this place at 10am in the morning and the men in our party decided that hotdogs for breakfast was a good idea. Well, it was a GREAT idea! Kermit's has other breakfast and lunch offerings and the hotdogs were delicious. Angel, our waitress, was super friendly and helpful. Old town charm and very clean and well kept... More

Hot dogs come with chili, slaw, onions, and mustard. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers come with lettuce and tomato. You only need to specify what you do not want, if anything, when ordering. Service is fast and the restaurant is often crowded but the hot dogs are what you should expect--thoroughly delicious. For those of us who have been around more than... More

I've eaten here probably hundreds of times over the years as I grew up just a few miles away. This was one of the original drive-in type hot dog shops in the area and is known for a predictably delicious dog.

If anyone wants a great hot dog or hamburger like it should be, this is the place! Always stop there when we go to Winston and wish it was in Oxford! They know how to fix it just right, toasted bun in butter, great chilli, slaw or anything else that they fix. Curb service, if you desire, and all employees... More

I go to Kermit's every month and it never gets old. The foot long special is where it is at! The toasted, buttered bun is delicious!
