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.

I grew up with my Grandpa taking me here after going to a local flea market. Building is an old 2 story house. There is seating for maybe 20 people. 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!

I picked him up and asked him where he wanted to go. He said "Hot-dog Heaven". Dave had been fighting a really bad staph infection and... More

There is not much you can do to mess up hot dogs and fries. Hot Dog Heaven is a great lunch option, plenty of seating inside or out. Cheese sauce on fries is a favorite. Reasonably priced.

If you're a hot dog lover, this is the place to go. Casual indoor and outdoor dining (summer only) and many topping options to satisfy everyone's tastes. Prices and dessert options are reasonable. I'd be slightly watchful of the French fries though. My last batch was dry, burnt to a crisp and tasteless. After paying $9 for a family fry... More
