Hot Dog Heaven is an Amherst landmark. For several decades it has operated out of the same converted house and has excelled at delivering the area's best dogs and fries. They are short on parking though.

We love the dogs & fries at Hot Dog Heaven. It can get a little pricey sometimes but the food is very good and a fun place to eat.

Hot Dog Heaven is a must go to place when you're in Amherst. Huge selection of dogs and toppings, other sandwiches, and good fries. Mac and cheese, is top "o" the line. Summer or winter this is the place to hit.

The hotdogs were quite expensive; it is a hotdog for crying out loud. The ice cream was yummy. The dining area was quite dirty. The server was friendly.

This place has been around for years and all the locals go here for hot dogs and kielbasa. They also offer other meats on their menu. Located in an old house near the center of town. Parking behind the house.

They have a good size menu but I have only ordered 2 different items in 35 years. Hot dogs and fries. The food is a little pricey but well worth... More

Good spot for a quick, tasty lunch. Hot dogs were griddled with a nicely browned exterior. Chili sauce was pretty good. Service was friendly and fast. A nice, throwback kind of place!
