Always a line, but moves quickly. great dogs and great price. You can tell its a legend when the same 6-8 people have been behind the counter for years. My favorite, footlong, chili, cheese, slaw dog.. Getting hungry just writing about a dog.

I love stopping by Hot Dog World when I want a delicious hot dog. Their other food is great as well! You may have to wait in line for a while because it is so popular, but it's worth it!

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 clean dining areas. My go to spot for lunch when I'm anywhere near!

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 soft drinks, thick shakes, and the obligatory sweet tea for a well rounded menu. Nothing... More

You know it is good when the parking lot is always full! And just stop by on a Friday night at 9-10pm...it is crazy with a line out the door. Good people! Good food! You can get a dog any way you like it. And the greek salad is delicious! A must visit if you are new to town.

LIMP dogs. Hot dogs should snap! Service is quick as food is pre- cooked. We do not understand why many locals think the food is good?

Restaurant is always crowded, so that should tell you something right there! Excellent food! Not a lot of indoor seating.
