I read some of the reviews that said the quality has gone down or that they weren't that great. Don't listen and GO! No, RUN there! For $6.50 American dollars I got a hot dog with everything (try it this way, you won't be disappointed)...More

The hotdog was good, but they seem to have to left hands when servicing the customers. Could be stream lines a lot better. But when in Reykjavik you have to have a hot dog here.

Visited this highly recommended hit dog stand. The ladies manning the counter were nice, quick, and prompt. Location is near the harbor but not on it. I got a plain one to see the true flavor and while it was nice, it was nothing too...More

I thought "okay yeah, hotdogs. It'll be fine" but for only 800k you get a delicious piping hot treat (if you don't order it with everything on it you're doing it wrong) and an ice cold Coke. Like most places in Iceland the line was...More

A definite must eat in Reykjavik. Might have a long q when you visit but hang in there and make sure you try the hotdog. The fried onion goes so well with the hotdog.

Our first hotdog in Iceland did not disappoint. The line up was pretty small so we only waited about five minutes to get served. We got a couple of fully loaded dogs to try. They were delicious. We ended up buying all the toppings to...More

Research on Iceland said toe hotdogs are outstanding so we had to try them. They are somewhat different than in Canada. I expect that the meat is different. It is very tasty. Great food truck

It's a hot dog. Tasty flavour. Special condiments. Nothing without the fried onions (YUM!). Efficient service. Good to do once on a trip - I probably wouldn't do it again unless I was looking for a cheap snack in Reykjavik.

Delicious hot dogs that put the American versions to shame. The dogs include lamb and have a nice snap when you bite in. So flavorful!

I spent $10 (1000 Kr) on a hot dog that was absolutely great. However, it was pretty much the same hot dog we've enjoyed at several gas station cafes around the country. Iceland's hot dogs are delicious and ubiquitous. Save your cash, get your hot...More

I don't know. Given its hot dogs, I'd assume the worst.

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".
