Wally's Hot Dogs

Wally's Hot Dogs
Lenoir City Tennessee

If you happen to be driving along highway 321 just outside of Lenoir City Tennessee, stop and say hello to Wally. He told his wife that he wanted to spend his retirement selling hot dogs and opened his stand on a remote section of highway with literally no other businesses around. He's from New York so maybe after all those years in the big city he decided to get away from it all. I gave him my blog address and he promised to stop by so he could see himself on the net. Hi Wally!

The dining room.

Hot dogs go for $1.75. Even less if you buy several at once. But ya need some chips Wally. Can't have a hot dog without some chips. Pepsi is only 75 cents a can. He has other flavors too. Besides hotdogs, he also sells kielbasa. I'll have to try that next time. I heard him say something about chili also, so I guess you could get a chili dog.

Wally does have his health department certificate in case you nay sayers were wondering.

I love the entrepreneurial spirit!
Dineometer Rating: 100%!

What a fun story to spotlight! I'd definitely stop for a hot dog from Wally. Since he's from NY then I bet he knows how to make those dogs just right! :-)

I really enjoy meeting the people that open these little busineses and I think its great to support the local economy.

Thanks for stopping by!

mmmmm, I love a good hotdog. Wally's a smart business man. There are many remote places in TN with miles and miles of nothing. I bet he'll do well there.

Good point. No competition. I was worried for his safety being out there alone though.

There was a place out here called Wally's Weiner's Works. He had the best hot dogs. I wonder if it's the same guy. I miss his sooooo much.

Hm Kiva. I think this is Wally's first foree (sp?) into Hot Dog entrepenureship.

Wally got all his Dineometer points based on his charisma not his hot dogs. ; )
