“Hot dogs!”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Everyone in town knows about Kermits hot dogs and how great they are and have been for many, many years. Toasted buns and homemade slaw and chili. Yum!

“Best Hot Dog any where!!!”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Kermits has been a southern icon for years, opened in 1966. You can and we do order the hot dogs with pimento cheese. We take everyone here for the hot dogs. I have never ordered anything else but the Special with Cheese which comes with the foot long hot dog with mustard, onions, homemade slaw and locally made B & J chili, fries and a drink. The buns are toasted. Their hotdogs are cooked by heating them, not boiling them, in water. People have told me they have the best hamburgers and breakfast but I cannot make myself order anything but the hot dog all the way with the pimento cheese as it is soooo good. Kermit's is open Monday-Saturday from 5:00am to 10:00pm and they are closed on Sunday. They only accept Cash. Also, they close for family vacations and holidays. It is located in an old drive in type building and in a pretty shady part of town but once you are there you will see people from every walk of life as this place takes you back to the 50's. Bathrooms are clean and the wait staff exceptional with southern charm

“Kermit would be proud!”
Reviewed April 28, 2011

Kermit's Hot Dog House is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The cheese dogs are to die for!! Most of the people are friendly but ALL of the food is good. I wish I could eat there every day, but I live too far away out of town. The only downside of Kermit's is the bathrooms. They are a little dirty, but an old restaurant like this one is hard to maintain! If you're looking for an awesome place to grab one of the best hot dogs ever, then this is the place for you!
