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.

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.

Sometimes we just have to have a hot dog. These are delicious and made to order. Combined with the fresh cut fries waiting for you to shake the vinegar on - it's a lunch or dinner that we look forward to. The prices are good and can be even better when you sign up for their email specials. It's all... More

These are cheap basic dogs, not a gourmet unique dog. Why eat these out when you can make something this cheap and bad at home?? Where is the all beef dog? or true Chicago dog or something really great instead of yet another boring chili dog. The fries are geasy as well. I will not be back. Some locals are... More

Been a staple in our families life for the last 20 year. Their chilie cheese dogs with kraut are the only thing crave when uncle sugar sends me "down range"

What is there not to like about Hot Dog Heaven? Great fries, malt vinegar, hot dogs any way you like them and a cozy space to eat- you just can't duplicate the taste of those dogs and fries at home. Been going there for so many years, and have no complaints.
