I knew I just had to try Hot Dog World since they were included in the July issue of Our State magazine. It was a great choice- good old fashioned dog with chili and slaw. It's old school kind of place- people were actually talking to each other instead of having on their smart phones. Note though cash or check... More

Hot dog world has been serving the best hot dogs around here for 30 years or so. The food is freshly prepared with a great staff to take care of customers. Whatever your hungry for either hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, salads(Greek is great), shakes and much more, this is the place to go.

If you enjoy variety and fast food w/flavor then this is the spot. Hot dog Galore!! They also offer salads, best Gyros including Lamb, Flavorful variety of Milk Shakes, and more. The prices are reasonable and the every topping you can think of that's combined w/a Hot dog. Hot dogs run as cheap as one dollar and change.. Can't beat... More

The Grand children love going there for hamburgers, hot dogs and I like going because I can get a Reuben, club or grilled chicken sandwich or different types of salads.

The hot dogs are good, not so great soups. Do not go there if you are in a hurry at lunch or dijnner time, very very busy.

Had always heard about this landmark but had never been able to get in the parking lot. We figured that coming into town at 1:45 pm would be our best chance. We did get in and get the only spot in the parking lot. We appreciated the 2 pet friendly tables out front as our dog was with us. People... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how many items were on the menu here. My son ate a hot dog and for once, actually ate the whole thing so I KNOW it was good! I loved the fact you could sit inside or outside and that you were only a few steps from downtown Hendersonville. I had a deluxe grilled cheese... More

Don't let the name mislead you, you can get a full meal here. It is a throwback to the 70's. One of the few downtown locations with good parking. Good dogs and friendly service. Needs a drive-thru window. Recommend.
