Kermit's is just one of those places that has been there your whole life and is just always good. I love their hot dogs--all the way. I have added pimiento cheese in the past--which is good--but I prefer all the way (slaw, onion, chili, mustard)....More

Family wanted a quick bite on the way to the mountains. This was good quality food for a fun stop. Dine outside or in. I loved the chef salad.

Passed this place a few times and decided to try their dogs. Service was fast and excellent. Dogs are RED in color. Tasted good but have to admit eating a RED hot dog took some getting used to.

This is a Winston Salem classic. Curbside service or eat it. Don’t expect fancy. It’s cheap and simple. Do yourself a favor and just get the foot long dog Carolina style - mustard, slaw,chili, onions.
