If you don't mind fast food, this is a great place to go. I suggest that you arrive before the dinner hour as it can become quite crowded. Prices were reasonable, and we picked up our food in a flash (we arrived before the dinner crowd). Delicious hot dogs, cole slaw, and huge order of fries (enough for 2 people).

FANTASTIC HOTDOGS !!! Local favorite and well deserved. The only negative thing I can say is that it is almost always crowded. If you want a REAL hotdog or Greek salad THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO !!! All their food is GREAT, I just personally love the hotdogs and the salad. NOTE --ask for the family size Greek salad... More

Title says it all. This place gets everything right for cheap eats. Fast, friendly, fresh, fairly priced. My wife doesn't eat hot dogs, but says the Greek salad is excellent.

Best hot dogs around. Also have delicious salads and homemade soups. Their gyros and burgers are also delicious. My grandfather from Florida loves their hotdogs and hotdog chili so much I have to bring him some everytime I go to visit him.

Stop for a late lunch with another couple. And hot dog and tater tots. Gentlemen we were with had a hamburger which he stated was too well done but otherwise it tasted very good. We all agreed that we experience another wonderful visit to hot dog world. We will be back, as we always are, whenever we are in town.

The hot dogs are good, but not extraordinary. The sides like French fries and slaw are also good. I'm not sure, beyond the nestalgic value, why so many locals love the place. It is kept clean and service is good, but parking can be a nightmare.

I've eaten a lot of hot dogs in my life. Hot Dog World is by far the best! It's a cash (or check) only place that consistently has a line out the door or wrapped all the around to the back. People know what's good! They grill the buns just enough to help them hold the hot dog in for... More
