Cori's DogHouse

Copy Link
Cori's literally has a hot dog for every taste, offering nearly 40 different options by state or region. They opened up their Mt. Juliet store in 2009, and followed that up with their West End spot two years later. Choices vary from the 'Jersey Breakfast' (bacon, shredded cheese and a fried egg) to a classic-style Chicago dog.

Hot Diggity Dogs

This downtown hot dog den does the classics right, including Chicago, Boston and New York-styles. Or go for the California, served on romaine lettuce. [Photo: Hot Diggity Dogs/Facebook]

I Dream Of Weenie

Copy Link
This little retro-fitted VW van is permanently parked at Five Points, shelling out some of the best hot dogs in town. Try a favorite off their main menu such as the 'Rebel Yelp,' featuring Tennessee chow-chow, mustard, onions and jalapenos, or go for their rotating daily specials.

The Dog of Nashville

This Hillsboro Village favorite expands the dog's range a bit, offering classics such as the 'Chi Town' and 'Coney Island' alongside deep fried hot dogs, corn dogs and veggie dogs. [Photo: The Dog of Nashville/Facebook]

The Hop Stop

This East Nashville growler and tap room spot is clearly all about the brew, but hot dogs are the headliner on their kitchen menu. Grab a classic Chicago or Coney Island chili dog, served on a pretzel bun. [Photo: The Hop Stop/Facebook]

Porter Road Butcher

Copy Link
Owners James Peisker and Chris Carter have made quite a name for themselves in a short amount of time, opening Nashville's first ever whole animal butchery in East Nashville back in 2011. So it should be no surprise that they have one of the best hot dogs in town. Head over to their newer West Nashville outpost and hit the drive-thru for a chili cheese dog, featuring a one hundred percent short rib hot dog with house made chili.
