I am a regular at Hot Dog World. They do everything right. Clean, high quality fresh ingredients served quickly by polite employees at good prices. Obviously a family operation that is very involved in the local community.

Always fresh and delicious. Love the foot long hot dog with sauerkraut. Milkshakes are very tasty. Food is always hot and made to order!

If you love hot dogs Hot Dog World should be a must stop.Great hot dogs and great fast service. My personal favorite is the slaw dog.But even if you don't chose dogs there are many more choices on the menu including burgers and salads.

An enjoyable eatery takes you back to your youth when baseball season was the busy time activity. The family eatery is perfect for the whole family and provides the solid substance for the activities of the day.

We stopped by for a quick dinner and were pleasantly surprised. They were incredibly efficient on a busy night. The place was very clean, the food was great and we all had dinner for $13. The chili on the dogs is not the tomato kind,...More
