Everybody likes a good hot dog and they have them here. They are a little pricey unless you order a combo or have a coupon. I personally love their fries. I will go in just to buy them to go. On their tables they have this seasoning that I dump in the bag and shake them up. Makes the fries... More

I lot of Amherst people love this place and so keep coming back. It's nostalgia. I only visit once or twice a year and the restaurant keeps slipping downhill. Today I came in for a couple of jumbo dogs and some fries. I expected to get a couple of nice cooked dogs. Instead, they dropped the dogs into a basket... More

Just ok. Stopped in for lunch and was surprised to learn new management. The food quality just wasn't the same. Now we are just judging hot dogs and fries but in the past things seemed better quality then a gas station dog but not this time. I have to say it was about the same as a 2 for 99... More

Hot Dog Heaven is also Fresh Fry Heaven! Best place around for crispy fresh fries with cheese! The hot dogs are good too, but I would drive for miles for the fries.

If you are in the dog house or just seeking a no frills place with excellent hot dogs then this is your destination. A great place to bring the children and the grandkids! Many different desserts available too. French fries are hard to beat anywhere. Enjoy!
