Ever since I can remember my mom and I have gone to Kermits. They have the best hot dogs and cheeseburgers ever! Love that they have car hop service if you don't want to get out. The location isn't in the best part of town, but I've never experienced any issues in that regard, just be mindful of your surroundings.... More

The hubby had always wanted me to try Kermit's so I got my chance while coming back from a medical appointment. It's classic drive in food and addicting! We ate there after the next 2 appointments! Wait staff great. It's been there a long time and I see why!!

Best hotdog in Forsyth County! Authentic old drive in with a dining room. Everything about this place rocks, including the soft serve ice cream machine.

I came to Kermits Hot Dogs for lunch today and had a couple hot dogs. I used to come here years ago and apparently they still have the same dogs they did back then. Maybe I have outgrown it, but I don't really care for their hot dogs as much as I once did. They're still good, but not as... More

I like this place. It's tucked away in a not-so-good section of town, but it's a clean, family-run, semi-famous, local dive. They continue to do a brisk business after years in the same location. Great burgers, dogs and fries and the best wait staff ever. It's a great combo of cheap, good and cool.

The wife and I tried the Hot Dogs plus I also got a Hamburger with chili and was expect the chili to be homemade and very traditional southern but it was not. Could taste the chili.... More

I love hot dogs. There , I said it out loud. I try the locals every place I go. Kermis, like Pulliams, is a local landmark. If you like southern red hots, this is the place to go. Pimento cheese is the key, just wish they put more on the dogs, LOL. I get them all the way, so sit... More

I wanted to check this place out to see why it's so crowded. I went on a Saturday before the race and it was packed with people. I pulled up to a spot so I could order from my car. After about 10 or 15 minutes I got out of my car to figure out who I needed to talk... More

This is an older place and maybe 10 or so booths. It was originally the A&W root beer place near the intersection of Sprague and Waughtown. These are not your
