Decided to stop to grab a quick bite to eat while on a long road trip and wow what a surprise! Service was friendly and the food was delicious! Best part? It was ridiculously cheap! I was hoping it was a bigger chain so I could get more during my trip but sadly they only have two locations.

I would say good hot dogs, but where is my hot dog? I ordered a chili dog, drove to the lake and found out they gave me a bun with nothing but chili on it. I'm like...what the heck is this? Who forgets a hot dog?? We were already 20 miles away, but I called and told them why forget... More

Little drive thru kiosk-type place. They have hamburgers but are known for their hotdogs. Get 'em with chili, cheese, slaw or just a good ol' plain beef hot dog.

Finally, after 6 ½ years of... More

If you want good hot dogs and lemonade, a fantastic milk shake, drive thru at Sammons on Hwy 19E going toward Roan Mtn, or on Hwy 67, just as you enter Elizabethton from Johnson City.
