Here's what Eat This, Not That! had to say about the best hot dog in Tennessee:
"D&B Hot Dogs was founded when two stay-at-home dads, Bruce Flomberg and Daniel Price, lamented that there weren't any good hot dog places in Knoxville. They'd already launched a successful lawn service company, so the pair joined forces once again — this time to open a top-notch hot dog restaurant. Within a few years, D&B had established itself nationwide; it was named the number one hot dog in Tennessee by 'Travel and Leisure' magazine in 2019 and was the only Tennessee establishment to be voted into the top 25 hot dogs in America by Yelp."
