Great inexpensive burgers, Thumanns hotdogs and chili cheese fries. Great stop after hanging out. This particular windmill has been around for like 40 years. Definitely a rough it menu that will not hurt your wallet.

If you are on a bike or just driving by the Dogs,Burgers Onion rings are sure worth the stop. Price is fair !! Also they have beer on tap.

Best hotdogs on the Jersey shore!!! Once you hit the beach you have to go to Windmill. The one in Belmar is a better location but the food is great in any location!

Just testing your math.LOL. They said $4.81 on the phone, I guess that's with tax. Can order 24 for $102.00 uncooked, delivered to my door, which I did. About $4 a dog!
