Stopped at Hot Dog Heaven for lunch during another road trip along I-80. Grumpy ordered onions on his dog and says the onions are just like Nathan’s - raw. That was a nice taste of home. The chili on the chili dog was very good....More

We have been coming here for years and the food is very good! The ice cream is awesome too. They also sell chicken and burgers.

Absolutely love the fries with cheese. A trick to save you a book or two is get the cheese on the side and you can put it on the hotdogs or the fries.

My kids love to go there and then head across the street to get ice cream from the Hastee Tastee. Downtown Amherst is a great place to visit. Hot Dog Heaven has great hot dogs, kielbasa, sausage and great fresh cut french fries.

Food always the same, pretty good but can't get over what it costs for a few hotdogs. There are better options for the price

No more dollar dogs with the new owners. Very rarely go there now. They still have coupons and that is pretty much a necessity with prices. Fries are still good!! Always clean and quick service.

I usually don't give bad reviews, but this one is a little harsh. When we pulled up to the restaurant we found a bunch of picnic tables set up outside in the front yard. It looked more like a graduation party set up than a...More
