Locally owned and great. Try it and you will see why. My wife's favorite is Chuck Wagon. My favorite is Hot Dog. Like other entries just love hot dogs.

This is the third time I ate at Doss's . It is a pretty famous Kernersville icon and always busy. They offer mostly their famous dogs and ice cream but have all sorts of flat grill comfort foods. Everything tastes good but the signs and attitude of the workers is a bit gruff and not friendly. I guess they do... More

The hot dogs are good. The buns are toasted. The fries are crinkle cut and crisp. The portions are generous. There are many flavors of ice cream for dessert. The decor is sparse. Then there are the clowns. Lots of them. I hate clowns. I seldom eat there because of the clowns.

Good old fashion burger joint. Hidden gem on the menu is the Philly cheese steak. Great burgers, chicken strips and ice cream.

Having heard good things about the hotdogs here, I stopped in for a Footlong Combo to go. The price posted was $6.30 ( a little high considering the prices at other cafes). After placing my order and telling the owner (?) it was to go, my total shot up to $7.10! I asked the reason for the high price and... More

The footlong hot dogs they use are those perfect ones with the best chili that leaves a little red stain on the paper. This is a family staff and there is plenty of southern paraphernalia to keep you interested.

I read the reviews before going here so I had good expectations. I was disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The cheeseburger was just ok, the philly steak was just ok, the fries were lukewarm and not fresh and the service was just so-so. I think the prices were high, I had the cheesteak and fries - no drink... More
