“Been there done that”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I heard about this place and used the GPS to find it. Food was OK but place was extremely crowded, had to wait too long. I guess that says how popular the place is. It is in a rough neighborhood and I was not comfortable being there. Parking is tough to find.

“The Best Dogs!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I'm shocked at the 'recent' poor reviews. Kermit's has always been about quality food and good customer service. The hot dogs have been fixed the same exact way for years and years and yes, they're dyed red but that's the way the regulars like them. I grew up eating Kermit's and my kids eat there now. They serve breakfast now too and it's amazing! Huge pancakes, egg plates, sandwiches, it's all good! Try it!!

“The VERY BEST hot dogs in Forsyth County!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Kermit's Hot Dog House is not located in the best part of Forsyth County, but it's worth the drive. I have been eating there since 1978, and no matter what any other survey says, Kermit's has the BEST hot dogs in Forsyth County. I love the toasted bun and the creamy slaw. And they serve their hot dog wrapped in paper & in a hot dog sleeve, not wrapped in a NAPKIN like Pulliam's. Love, love, love Kermit's hot dogs and I wish I lived closer. The building is old but clean, and staff is always appreciative of your business. You can get curb service after 4 p.m. which is a nice, nostalgic touch. For all you old timers in Forsyth County: Do you remember the Dine-In Car located on Liberty Street at Akron Drive across from Smith Reynolds Airport? Those were some good dogs, too!

“Red Dye Dogs in a Bad Part of Town”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Good value but the red dye tube steaks are tasteless, fries are good, fills you up but at a cost of leaving you unsatisfied.
