Went here while visiting Hendersonville and helping out with a friend's cabin. Great food, and the prices were good, too. Not big on hotdogs, but I had to try the chili, cheese, and onion dog.. Awesome! Make sure you stop by here next time you're...More

Good variety of dogs, good fries, not so good onion rings (batter too thick). The owner is a highlight.....very caring and attentive. The problem is that they move such volume through, they have no time for any personal attention in the ordering and serving area....More

A Hendersonville standard for many years... always good food; always fast and excellent service; always great value for money! A single line (sometimes long but reasonably fast moving) for ordering, watching your food being prepared and picking it up and paying for it. Plain but...More

There's always a line at Hot Dog World, and great variety. With their 'signature dog' you get the works for $1.50! 😜. Or, you have a whole banquet of dogs & burgers, including a 'veggie dog'. Add chili, cold sandwiches and the typical sides, plus...More
