Many of you probably haven't heard of this place, but there's a chance you've seen it as it's located on Middlebrook Pike.
It's one of those places that you see, but probably hesitate to stop and try.
Why you ask?
- There's no where to sit. You have to eat in your car.
- It's in the parking lot of a laundry-mat, which honestly can be a little weird at times.
Most of us see this little place and simply keep driving, but it's definitely worth the stop.
When Dave's Dog House first opened a few years back, we had the pleasure of speaking with Dave who originally owned the place. It has since been sold to one of his good friends due to medical reasons and at times you'll still see Dave working the stand.
Dave started with hot dog carts and at one time had several of these carts across Chattanooga. He owned and managed these for many years. This stand was to be his last and was his answer to wanting to settle down.
The Good Stuff
This isn't one of those places that's going to serve you a top of the line gourmet hot dog, but if you ask me the gourmet thing is overdone.
Sometimes we just want a normal, delicious back yard dog and that's what you'll get here.
You'll get Steamed buns, steamed dogs, and a massive amount of toppings to choose from. If you haven't had a hot dog with slaw, this is the place to try it.
You can't go wrong here and the best part is that you'll get two hot dogs anyway you want them, a bag of chips and a drink for about $6.00.
The Real Truth
We can say without hesitation that this place has some of the best hot dogs in all of Knoxville.
Taking that a step farther, Dave's Dog House may serve up one of the best hot dogs in the entire South East, but remember, don't go expecting a gourmet dog.
Get ready to get your hands dirty and grab plenty of napkins!
