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!

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.

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.

I am not a big fan of hotdogs, but this place may convert me! If you want a hotdog that isall beef and tasteslike America... this is your place. Tons of options for toppings. Quick, friendly service.
