Hot dogs

Little drive thru kiosk-type place. They have hamburgers but are known for their hotdogs. Get 'em with chili, cheese, slaw or just a good ol' plain beef hot dog.

t had been some time since visiting Sammons, so when a craving for hot dogs hit me the other day, I decided to stop by. Ordered two hot dogs (the standard way, mustard, onions, and chili) and a tea. There were two cars ahead and it took roughly 10-12 minutes and a great deal of confusion and back and forth... More

Decided to stop to grab a quick bite to eat while on a long road trip and wow what a surprise! Service was friendly and the food was delicious! Best part? It was ridiculously cheap! I was hoping it was a bigger chain so I could get more during my trip but sadly they only have two locations.

I would say good hot dogs, but where is my hot dog? I ordered a chili dog, drove to the lake and found out they gave me a bun with nothing but chili on it. I'm like...what the heck is this? Who forgets a hot dog?? We were already 20 miles away, but I called and told them why forget... More

For several years as my wife and I would drive into her hometown, Elizabethton, TN, we would pass Sammon’s and she would exclaim, “they have the best slaw dogs…they are SO GOOD!” And then on the way out of town we would bemoan that we did not have time to stop on this trip! Finally, after 6 ½ years of... More

If you want good hot dogs and lemonade, a fantastic milk shake, drive thru at Sammons on Hwy 19E going toward Roan Mtn, or on Hwy 67, just as you enter Elizabethton from Johnson City. There is outside seating for picnic style eating. The hot dogs are what I will affectionately call a Southern boiled dog. The chili is simple... More
