If you are in the mood for a good hot dog, this is the place. Many types to select from and all that I have had are very tasty. Their other menu items are very good also. Just wish the hours were more Convenient.

The best hot dog vendor is back in Kingsport! Look for his Hot Dog cart Downtown on the corner of Center St and Broad St.

I don't know what happened but TKs Big Dog is closed. Went by recently and windows were papered over and there was an announcement for a new facility.

.....on four legs. Huge variety of hot dogs/toppings are available, and you can also get the pretzel or poppy seed bun in addition to the standard bun. The line can get long at times, but TK & crew keep things moving pretty quickly. Other items like nachos (very good according to some friends) are available. Personally, I like the West... More

So we recently moved to Kingsport and have been looking for new, fun places to eat and this fits the bill perfectly! First a tip, get the two dog combo and make one of them a Chicago Dog! That thing looks like a wreck but it is delicious beyond belief! Then just try whatever for the second. I am gonna... More

TK's Big Dog has all your favorites for the true hot dog connoisseur. You can get a hot dog from most major cities: New York Dog, Chicago Dog, etc., and polish sausage dogs. They use Nathan's Pure Beef hot dogs and provide any topping you need! They also serve quality ice cream and some of the best sweet tea around!... More

They have about 25 toppings listed on the board that you can add to your hot dog at no additional charge, 3 kinds of mustard, cheese, kraut, pepper and onions etc. will definitely go back, but beware they only take cash and its about 8...

TK's Big Dogs started out as a cart. He would move around and be in different spots sometimes, and the hotdogs were so good we would drive around town looking for him until we found him! We were so happy when he opened a sit down place because we didn't have to search any more. The prices are not bad.... More
