Nice little hometown place!

I have been going to Hot Dog Heaven since I was a girl in high school. I love this place. It was a great little spot to stop on the way home from school since the high school was just down the street, and I had to walk past it with my friends every school day anyway. It has a... read more

I used to live down the street so my kids grew up with eating here. The fries are great and huge. Get them with cheese sauce and they became a full meal themselves or cut down on the price and share for the whole family. Buy the extra toppings on the dogs they make them into true big city gourmet... More

Good fries and great chili dogs add cheese if you like. The fries are cut fresh never frozen the difference is amazing.

You have to try this place I found out it's been here for years and this is the first time I've had the privilege to eat here! The name says it all! Great food and quaint atmosphere try the jumbo all beef with all the fixings.

I used to live down the street so my kids grew up going here. If you dont like hotdogs they have a huge variety of other items. The fries are great especially with cheese sauce and 1 order serves the whole family. If you dont want food you can just come for the ice cream.

"You're not from Amherst if you've never been to Hot Dog Heaven"! We love it there. Family owned and operated. Your choice of toppings and fresh cut fries. Cute atmosphere and very good food! Local hangout place. Good desserts too.

Good hot dogs....really good fries. The kind you get at the fair but can get them here all year round. Their prices are a little high for hot dogs. They offer ice cream too at a reasonable price.

It's a pity Northern Ohio has some unwarranted prejudice toward hot dogs. Unlike other nearby cities, there is a real lack of good hot dog joints Somehow our good citizens think the ground meat and processed chicken that makes up their burgers and McNuggets are more pristine and healthful. Oh well. Back to HDH-I love this place. Chili Dogs. Slaw... More

The fries are the best. There aren't a lot of tables but it is clean and air conditioned. Food is served fast. A little pricey for hot dogs but a filling meal.

If you want a hotdog, this is the place to go. Fast service, fun place to go with kids, great milk shakes. Best nutrition free meal around.
