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

Cool place to take your kids for some great hot dogs! They make Coney Island dogs just about any type you can think of. Hungry for lunch with kids? This is a great place to go when visiting Amherst Oh!

It's a hot dog. What more can you say. And I will say that Costco's $1.50 dogs are better. The place is a converted old house and shows it. If I never went again, it wouldn't bother me.
