The absolute best tasting hot dogs prepared on flattop griddle, served with fresh cut fries. The portion size of the fries is unbelievably large that can be hard to finish alone.

My family and I have been customers of hot dog heaven for years. On April 3, 2015, this ended. There was a lady there that was rude and refused to honor our coupon.

Hot Dog Heaven let's you build your dog any way you want & offers lots of options from chili to kraut. Their fresh cut fries are a perfect side and they are not stingy with them. Consistently great, but know that during summer sports seasons you may find multiple teams lined up there.

Every once in a while I have to have a Hot Dog. When the mood strikes there is no better place to go than Hot Dog Heaven. I can not think of any place better than there. It's a big hit with the kid's and those of use that still think like Kid's!!!

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.

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.
