After recently being disappointed with hot dogs and clam chowder in two other Hendersonville restaurants, I was delighted with the quality and taste of both at Great American Dog. Natural casing hot dogs and a real New England Clam Chowder (not a thick as paste flavorless potato soup with a few bits of clam) and hand cut fries. I ordered... More

Don't be fooled by the name for this Hot Dog establishment, it offers a vast variety of items on the menu other than hot dogs. The owner, originally from Agusta, Maine and a New England Patriots football fan offers full belly clams, and hamburgers that exceed the diameter of the bun. You really get your money worth here. The items... More

Best po'boy I've ever eaten, and there jalapeno corn nuggets are really good. This has to be a secret or something cause I was shocked I haven't heard about this place before really good seafood.

Unusual place we found while in the area. Homemade onion rings were good, our hot dogs were super. Mine had their "pepper relish", mildly spicy and totally tasty.

I love corn dogs and the ones here were the best I've had in years. It was our first visit there and we were not disappointed. My corn dogs were crisp and hot. They even had cups of mustard and not those silly little packages one must squirt on the corn dog. My husband had a chili dog and was... More

This was my first visit here with family. They were very friendly people and the menu had a lot to choose from. If I ever make it back to this side of Hendersonville I would definitely come back here to try a hotdog.

Went to this restaurant when they opened and was not impressed. The food has improved dramatically. The service is good and friendly the prices are average and the selection is almost overwhelming.

Who would have thought one could find excellent lobsta rolls outside and quite a ways from Maine? We did! While they don't offer the lobster rolls with drawn butter as they do at so many Maine restaurants, the use of mayonnaise was spare and didn't cover up the delectable lobster. The lobster rolls with cole slaw and french fries was... More

What could be better than a tasty lunch, quick service and welcoming staff...that's what we got when my husband and I stopped in for lunch. I had a yummy Grilled Marinated Chicken Breast Sandwich and my husband had Maine Whole Belly Fried Clams Basket...delicious!!! Since our last visit, they are now open Sundays from 11-3pm.

This is a great hot dog diner, that also has a lot of other choices. They have a large selection of fried seafood baskets and sandwiches. Nothing fancy, but the food comes fast and is delicious. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. This is where the working locals go to get a great lunch.
