“Fantastic! Well worth the any wait in line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Any time Im in the states, I always go out of my way to visit! Its amazing. This restaurant goes beyond just being a small town comfort food. The staff are so overwhelmingly friendly, you feel a part of the family. The food is brilliant, no matter if youre in the mood for a foot long hot dog, double cheeseburger or gyro, youre going to get something of a very high quality and the feeling that you will be returning for more!

There is almost always a line when you visit, not only does this show you that the establishment is so good that everyone else is prepared to queue for the food but it also allows you to take in the atmosphere and to get the taste buds well and truely running.

This is a place that you wont forget and youll find your kids frequenting and their kids frequenting. This is truly a family treasure for generations to enjoy!

“Best Hot dogs, Best People!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Hot Dog world has the best hot dogs in town. They also have homemade soup and good burgers. The owner and people are friendly and make you feel at home. The owner does a lot for the local community always ready to give to a local charitable organization. Hot Dog World is part of the Hendersonville community.

“More than dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Yea, it's Hot Dog World but they have a lot more than that. The dogs are good but don't stop there. Try something else. Very crowded during lunch. Might have to wait a bit in line to order. I think a lot of locals eat here regularly. Outside tables are the best.

“Irresistable Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Not a better hot dog in town, plus it's very economical. Should you not be in the mood for a hot dog, there are delicious salads and many sandwich selections.

“Hendersonville Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by friends and what a fun place!
Hot dogs!
What else would you get!
A thousand different ways! (Maybe not 1,000, but sure seemed like it).
The wait was a bit long, get two hot dogs as they were small, and enjoy the atmosphere!
