We stumbled upon this place our first day in the city, I had seen it listed online as the best in town. Waited in line and were not disappointed. We made our way here the next 2 nights for a repeat performance.

Guess I just had to have a dog at the most famous hot dog stand in Iceland. Made famous by Bill Clinton, America's fast food junkie! Good dog but a little tough eating it outside in 20 degree weather...still worth a stop.

This is the place where bill Clinton stopped to eat a hotdog and I felt obligated to try one too. Lucky I did. So delicious. The snap of the casing, the quality of the meat, the delicious mustard. Worth every penny!!

Baejarins beztu pylsur (English: The best hot dog in town) often shortened to simply "Baejarins beztu", is a popular hot dog stand in central Reykjavik, Iceland. In August 2006, the British newspaper The Guardian selected Baejarins beztu as the best hot dog stand in Europe. The majority of Icelanders have eaten at Baejarins beztu. It's downtown near the harbor and has been open since 1937. Foreign visitors are often brought to the stand to introduce them to the hot dogs there, which are often called "the Icelandic national food." Among famous people who have eaten at Baejarins beztu are Bill Clinton, former president of the United States, and James Hetfield, vocalist of the popular heavy metal band Metallica. A hot dog condiments include ketchup, sweet mustard, fried onion, raw onion and remoladi, a mayonnaise-based sauce with sweet relish. Hot dogs are often ordered with "the works," i.E., All condiments, or in Icelandic "eina med ollu".
