“Best hotdogs I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

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. You can get 2 dogs, chips and a drink for around $6 which isn't bad for lunch and you leave full! There is no extra charge for toppings on the hotdog and they have a wide selection. Highly recommended!

“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 9, 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!!
