You wait in a line to place your order but you won't find a place who gives you better personal service. You can watch your food being prepared. And pay at register....in a rush..depends on the day and time. But it is not a usual fast food restaurant....it is a great lunch place....but is popular with locals especially any time... More

THE spot for hotdog, greek salad and other local fare. Quick service, considering it is always FULL. Everyone loves this place, a town classic.

This wonderful restaurant has some of the best hotdogs (and other items) on their menu that I have ever had. The owners are also very community minded and are a joy!

This is a good place for a good casual meal. Food made to order. Specialty hot dogs and other sandwiches with plenty of sides.

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 in town!

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. the dogs are steamed, chili is fine and coleslaw is good. But don't ask for... More

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!
