GOOD HOT DOGS

I came to Kermits Hot Dogs for lunch today and had a couple hot dogs. I used to come here years ago and apparently they still have the same dogs they did back then. Maybe I have outgrown it, but I don't really care for their hot dogs as much as I once did. They're still good, but not as... read more

I like this place. It's tucked away in a not-so-good section of town, but it's a clean, family-run, semi-famous, local dive. They continue to do a brisk business after years in the same location. Great burgers, dogs and fries and the best wait staff ever. It's a great combo of cheap, good and cool.

I love good old southern hotdogs and friends of mine told me about Kermits. Its a old drive inn open up in 1966 . The wife and I tried the Hot Dogs plus I also got a Hamburger with chili and was expect the chili to be homemade and very traditional southern but it was not. Could taste the chili.... More

I love hot dogs. There , I said it out loud. I try the locals every place I go. Kermis, like Pulliams, is a local landmark. If you like southern red hots, this is the place to go. Pimento cheese is the key, just wish they put more on the dogs, LOL. I get them all the way, so sit... More

I wanted to check this place out to see why it's so crowded. I went on a Saturday before the race and it was packed with people. I pulled up to a spot so I could order from my car. After about 10 or 15 minutes I got out of my car to figure out who I needed to talk... More

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
