No doubt Hot Dog world has the best Hot Dogs in Hendersonville. I have paid three times as much for a hot dog and it was not as good. This restaurant has been a local favorite for over 20 years located on Kanuga Road.

This is a local favorite for when you want a burger or hotdog without a lot of bells and whistles. Parking can be limited. Dinning is inside but if the weather is nice they offer a covered patio to eat outside. If you arrive a...More
