A great real deal hot dog and fries joint! The cheeseburgers are must. A fun fast seat down or take out restaurant that is suspended in time and makes you feel like a kid. For a family outing or grabbing breakfast or lunch at work,...More

This place has been around for a long long time . I have eaten there many many times . The service is always quick whither it's curb service or in restaurant dining. Great foot long and fries specials .

If you're in the mood for a great hot dog, look no further than Kermits'. It's been there for eons and still offers "curb service" Foot long hot dog specials are the best you'll find and they also serve breakfast. Make sure to leave room...More

I love this restaurant! The atmosphere is so laid back and feels like you're taking a step back in time. One of my favorite places in Winston-Salem. Very, very cheap food, great hot dogs. Friendly staff.

You cannot go wrong with Kermit's. Was introduced to Kermit's almost forty years ago by a supervisor at RJR who would treat us to the hot dogs with pimento cheese. They are still my favorites all these years later. Whatever your choice you will enjoy...More

I am from NC and I love our Carolina style hot dogs more than anything. I love Zack's and Yum-Yums and all the old-school joints in the Triad. Kermit's hot dog was as good as any I've ever had, period. The vintage Drive-in location is...More
