Great local place for all kinds of eats from dogs to burgers with all the trimmings! Very popular among locals and staff always pleasant. If you're in the area, be sure to stop by.

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....More

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...More
