“Awesome Dogs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

TK's is our favorite place to eat lunch in Kingsport! Sadly, we only get down there once a month on the week my hubby is off. His favorite is 2 New Yorks Nathans dogs w kraut and spicy mustard, with chips and a drink.This is one of the specials. I am a little more adventurous and have tried just about all of the offerings! That being said, I would walk quite a ways for a TK's authentic Chicago Dog! OOOOOH MYYYY! The staff and owners are super and always have time for a kind word and a smile, even when very busy. They will take time to explain the various dogs to you if you are a newbie. That kind of service in today's world is a rarity and deserves to be commended. I like their lemonade and I also really like a Nathans dog with their awesome chili and nacho hot cheese on a pretzel or steamed bun! The pretzel bun holds up better with the pile of chili and cheese, still, you may need a plastic spoon to eat it all up. We can both have lunch with two dogs, chips, and a drink for about $12. Heck, you can't even eat fast food for that! We always take family and friends for lunch when they come to visit. Can't go wrong!
Hint: They only take cash, so come prepared.

“A good dog of any breed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

If you are in Kingsport try TK;s, if you are close by it is worth a fairly long detour. The service is excellent, the dogs are the best you will find in the south.

“For Hot Dog Lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

They have big variety of different fixin's to dress their hot dogs and polish sausages. Not a chain, and that is what makes it really good. Take a walk and see all the sculptures on display downtown to work off your meal!!

“Good vs. Pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

The best hot dogs you ever tasted, but a little on the pricey side. We ate at TK's several times & they have alot of different ways to make you a hot dog. Very good taste & choice. Price is a little high for a hot dog but would go back.
