My auto pilot takes me there because of the owner, the food and the service. My Greek salad, fish sandwich, fries are always top notch. Today I had the Carolina hot dog!

Every time we are in Hendersonville.... we stop by. Great selection of hot dogs and hamburgers. Milk shakes are excellent. Reminds you of the movie... American Graffiti. Nice people, good food!

The people who own and operate Hot Dog World have this business down pat. The hot dogs certainly can't be beat but there are other items on the menu that are delicious

I love hotdog world. I went there as a child with my parents and grandparents and now take my children there. They have consistently good food at great prices and the owners are fantastic people and great patrons of our community.

Just a fun place for lunch with hot dogs, burgers and shakes. This place is a must go to stop, especially with kids. Counter is friendly and the food is drive in classic without the car service.
