Good combo specials! Love their peanut butter milk shakes and chili dogs! So happy they decided to reopen after initial decision to close permanently ❤

This place is not your standard drive thru, fast food place. Unique features include fresh lemonade, peanut butter & chocolate peanut butter milkshakes, and hot dogs with sauerkraut & cole slaw in addition to chili, cheese, relish, onion mustard & mayonnaise ! Even the long lines at the drive thru move quickly. Great place !!

We are military and have lived outside of TN for 10 years. Every time we come home to visit we always stop here. Great hot dogs and fantastic lemonade.

t had been some time since visiting Sammons, so when a craving for hot dogs hit me the other day, I decided to stop by. Ordered two hot dogs (the standard way, mustard, onions, and chili) and a tea. There were two cars ahead and it took roughly 10-12 minutes and a great deal of confusion and back and forth... More

Decided to stop to grab a quick bite to eat while on a long road trip and wow what a surprise! Service was friendly and the food was delicious! Best part? It was ridiculously cheap! I was hoping it was a bigger chain so I could get more during my trip but sadly they only have two locations.
