It's a bit unusual and from appearances you may pass it by. Don't. Food is very good. We have had several of their selections, Rubens, slaw dogs, Greek salad, and more. The best thing is the prices, great value. Highly recommend. Give it a try.

After driving by for a milk shake and seeing a line out the door we decided come back for lunch the next day. Another line the next day but it moves fairly fast. The burgers, dogs, and milkshakes were worth the small wait. Plenty of food, great value, and good food. If your in the mood for burgers or dogs it's a must stop in hendersonville.

A local favorite with a perpetual line out the door, this was a mandatory first stop when my wife and I rolled into Hendersonville. The menu features traditional drive-thru fare ( hotdogs, hamburgers, shakes, etc.) but the hot dogs are the star of the show. We had 2 of the Slaw Dogs (cole slaw, chili, onions, and mustard) and 2 Kraut dogs ( smoked sausage, sauerkraut, onions, mustard) and an order of cheese and bacon tater tots for $11.00. All the dogs came boiled to perfection, and piled with toppings without being messy and the tots filled a full-sized styrofoam container to brimming. The place is cash only, but they have an ATM in the lobby. We will definitely be going back the next time we're on that side of the country!

If you ever find yourself in Hendersonville, NC, you must stop at this hot dog joint. Anyone in town can give you directions. I promise you it will be the best hot dogs you have ever eaten. Really good prices and quick service. Line is usually out the door, but it moves quickly.

I love living in Hendo; aka Hendersonville, aka, Hooterville. No trip to Hendo is complete until you stand in line for a "House Special" at Hot Dog World. (hot dog, chili with no beans, onions and mustard) They do hot dogs of all type, hamburgers, Greek salad and other fast food items. Great milk shakes, great fry's.

You've not experienced Hendo until you've done this. I've never lived anywhere else where people will stand in line for upwards of fifteen to thirty minutes to buy a hotdog. While in line listen to the discussions that take place. You can learn fascinating bits of information while in line. I got a referral for my first apartment and realtor while at Hot Dog World. It is too much fun. This is Americana at its best.

The food is very reasonable, thus the line. I'm a big fan of Cincinnati chili, it's not like that, but it is owned by a Greek family that I dearly love. So, if you are visiting Hendersonville, go do Hot Dog World.
