You’re Smoky Mountain Vacation

It is easier than ever to start planning for your smoky mountain vacation right now. Everyone that works in Sevier County is here to create the most amazing experience for you that is possible. That is certainly the case in the service industry. Another question we often get is “How do y’all serve all of these people?” It is quite a monumental task, but the workers in this area are usually the very best that the service industry has to offer. From the cooks to the servers, to the people working in the hotels. Everyone here is trained and experienced in handling larger crowds. Still, restaurants hit their capacity and that is the most they can handle which creates waits, but that is really the hardest part of vacationing here. Either eat a little early or later, or be prepared to wait at some of these larger restaurants.

Hot DIggity Dawg very rarely has any wait due to our speed and execution so always keep us in mind if you find yourself on a long wait and are starving!
