After all these years we finally stopped and had lunch before we left W'burg to head back to Richmond. This place is great and you can have your hotdog any way you want it for a really great price too! Root Beer, Shakes, Onion Rings, and Fries too if you want them. It was fantastic!

Stopped in for a mi-day snack. Drove by lots of times. The staff were awesome. The place as a diner feel which I loved. They make their own chili and the dogs are awesome. Order a footling all the way. You won't be disappointed!

I love hot dogs and like to try new hot dog places whenever I can. This place was a good choice. The hot dogs are grilled and come with a good variety of toppings. There is wait service so you do not have to order and then scramble for a table. I went with a large group and asked for... More

When making trips to Williamsburg, Virginia, we always stop at the Hot Dog King for lunch. It’s a treat dining in the charming 50/60s-style restaurant. The menu boasts a large variety of hot dogs, with several toppings from which to choose – BBQ sandwiches – Chili - soft drinks – scrumptious thick milkshakes – and ice cream either in cones... More

Also, fantastic service. The waitress explained my options clearly and also chatted with me a bit about Williamsburg. Enjoyed it.

This is the only place we have ever found that is better than ballpark hotdogs. They can make them to order, anyway you like.

Great value option for quick, predictable food (hot dogs, cheese fries, similar items). "Fast food" with table or counter service. Staff seems to take pride in friendly reputation. Souvenir T-shirts often for sale.

I go there about once a month. It is always consistently good. There is nothing I can add to the many favorable comments. I do find it funny about some that mention "southern hospitality", being that this is owned and operated by a Greek family.
