“Best dogs in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Great food. Hot dogs and Sausage dogs are the best in town. Onion rings and fries are wonderful. Everything is done up fresh. The place is clean, and the service is friendly.

“Love this place!”

We found this restaurant when we first moved to Hendersonville and it has quickly become one of our favorite lunch spots. Food is great, service is quick and the staff is super friendly. We keep going back!

“Truly a Jewel In The Restaurant Business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is a small family run business that can seat about 60 to 70 people. Truly a great place to eat. They have everything from the best Hot dogs to seafood plates all prepared when you order it and delivered to your table hot. Easy access off Greenville Highway with acres of parking. There is another place in town that everyone raves about and I have eaten there but nothing compares with Great American. This may not be a 5 star in some circles but in the realm of small mom and pop restaurants this one is the best. I have eaten here numerous times and always great food at a very reasonable price. Whatever you do try their Onion Rings.

“Worth A Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

The two things you go here for are good hotdogs and fried seafood. The owner is from New England and has a passion for seafood. It's very casual fare with the seafood served in baskets with french fries or onion rings. There's usually a special on the board. The fried clams and fried shrimp are my favorites. Their hotdogs are good but what I like most is that if you ask them, they will split your dog open and grill it for you. Buns are grilled or just steamed, depending on your preference. Price is very reasonable and the staff are super accommodating. No particular atmosphere but clean tables and bathrooms and pretty quick service. There usually is not a wait so you can be in and out without delay. This is my quick go-to place on days I am running errands.
