There’s no better way to end a busy adventure than with a great meal, which is why we are taking your group to the classic Smoky Mountain Shakes N Dawgs. Located on Mills Park Road, this quaint but Tennessee typical style eatery serves an eclectic selection of hot dogs, providing even the pickiest of eaters with a multitude of delicious options.
This restaurant is the "home of the moonshine dawg," a down home Gatlinburg classic cooked with the delicious and intricate flavors of Smoky Mountain moonshine. Not only will you find the craziest concoctions of hot dog bliss, but you will also be able to choose from several fried favorites and scrumptious handmade milkshakes. The entire business is family owned and operated, a small and friendly local business you won’t regret stopping at while here (just be sure to get here early for lunch if you want a big group seating arrangement, with a total of only six small tables inside).
Once you get here you will see a huge list of toppings to dress your dawg with, such amazing and mind-blowingly intense options as the Philly Cheese Steak, Red Hot Super, Mean Joe Bean, Chili Cheese Fry, and Mac n' Cheese dog (that’s right, mac n' cheese on a hot dog). Some of the biggest favorites here are the Choo Choo Dawg, bacon wrapped, deep fried, and smothered in cheese, and the Super Purple Cabbage Slaw Dawg. Grab some fries or onion rings for sides, a burger to go, or save room for a fresh milkshake for dessert.
The Peanut Butter Chocolate is an obvious crowd-pleaser as far as the ice cream goes, but the fresh strawberry is close behind, pallets of fresh local strawberries delivered weekly. This is an absolute great place to dine for kids and/or bigger group for its variety, simplicity, and budget aspect, and it also lets you have a peek at local Smoky Mountain life while here. As one happy customer said before, eating here "was like eating ‘merica!" Enjoy, and tell your stomach it’s welcome from us!
