“Best dog in town, even if it's not....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

.....on four legs. Huge variety of hot dogs/toppings are available, and you can also get the pretzel or poppy seed bun in addition to the standard bun. The line can get long at times, but TK & crew keep things moving pretty quickly. Other items like nachos (very good according to some friends) are available. Personally, I like the West Coast dog (chili, guac & sour cream on a pretzel bun) and the Chicago style, but it's just a matter of preference as to what you like. Be sure to have cash available, because they don't accept plastic.

“Unbelievably good!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

So we recently moved to Kingsport and have been looking for new, fun places to eat and this fits the bill perfectly! First a tip, get the two dog combo and make one of them a Chicago Dog! That thing looks like a wreck but it is delicious beyond belief! Then just try whatever for the second. I am gonna do that from now on and try different dogs for the second one. The place was very clean and the owner was absolutely great and took time to explain the different dogs to us. The only drawback is they are a lunch only place and open Mon-Sat 11-2:30 but if you are downtown for lunch give this place a try. It was just me and the wife today, but we plan on bringing the kids soon. Loved it!!!!!!

“If you like hot dogs, you'll love TK's Big Dog!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

TK's Big Dog has all your favorites for the true hot dog connoisseur. You can get a hot dog from most major cities: New York Dog, Chicago Dog, etc., and polish sausage dogs. They use Nathan's Pure Beef hot dogs and provide any topping you need!
They also serve quality ice cream and some of the best sweet tea around! Check them out during the Downtown Kingsport Outdoor Concert series.

“Best dog I have had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Every thing is top notch friendly owners but be prepared to wait awhile to decide what u want so many choices but if you can't find a dog you like here you will never find one you will like. Flew in for nieces Wedding and tried this place out was very impressed wished Diners Drive Inns and Dives would vist this place.

“Very good hotdogs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Many different kinds of dogs, I tried the Chicago and New York, both were excellent. They have about 25 toppings listed on the board that you can add to your hot dog at no additional charge, 3 kinds of mustard, cheese, kraut, pepper and onions etc. will definitely go back, but beware they only take cash and its about 8 dollars for 2 dogs chips and a drink
