Hot Dog World turned out to be my favorite place. They are a mom & pop establishment that's been around for years. The menu has a lot to choose from and everything is hot and fresh. The atmosphere is eclectic and it adds to the charm. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Love it!

We had the following items: club sandwich (bacon was rubbery), chili, fish sandwich, chef salad, Greek salad. If I had to go back there again, I would definitely only re-order the Greek salad.

Stopped in late tonight about 8:30 with the family. I had hotdogs which were excellent French fries which were also pretty good and a chef salad which was sizable and great. Our food was ready pretty quick, dogs and fries were nice and hot. We've been here before so we knew that we had to grab some cash, cards aren't... More

Great place to get hot dogs and chuck wagon sandwiches. They also have great barbecue and Greek salad. It's rare to find all of this variety within a cheap budget. The line is long, but worth the wait. Sometimes we call in order so we don't wait.

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.

Their food is really tasty, and a Hendersonville classic, and would recommend to those hot-dog connoisseurs out there. However if you find yourself very reactive to sodium nitrate or you have a very sensitive stomach to some processed foods, I would skip this one. I can't eat their food (despite their deliciousness) due to these allergic reactions so I warn... More

A true Hendersonville original serving the best house made chili dogs, fresh cut French Fries, pinto beans and apple tuners in the state. One of the true pieces of Americana. Well worth a visit not just for the food, but the people that truly make visiting Hot Dog World a culinary experience.

Love this place!! Go anytime I am over here. Either get a hotdog or a gyro. Anything you get is going to be good! The staff and owner are always busy but smiling and courteous to everyone that walks through the door! Thank you Hot Dog World for serving Hendersonville for so many years!!
