A staple of the Jersey Shore....hard to beat their foot long hot dogs...perfectly done. The burgers are flame grilled and done to order as is everything else. Top it off with cheeses fries and onion rings. Two locations in Long Branch...the flag ship store has sitting on the upper deck of the Windmill ...mostly take out here. The other location... More

Going down the main road in Longbranch NJ you come across a large windmill. This unique attraction is a "fast food" type restaurant. The interior is very small with not much room to order. The prices for the food are higher than average and the quality being average. The hotdogs are long and large with a thick skin and a... More

Always a great choice! They have expanded the menu to even include a veggie burger - something for everyone! And don't skip the walk upstairs - eat up there if it's not too windy!

Larger than bun hot dogs, cooked to order burgers, classic fries. Very good service. Real Jersey fast food.

This cramped little windmill restaurant (though his does have a few 2nd story seats) serves up top notch fast food, Jersey style-- burgers, dogs, chicken cutlets, and, if you ask, even a veggie burger. Guilty pleasure on the shore.

Slow service, sloppy presentation, burnt inedible burger with burnt roll. rubber tough hot dogs, tiny 11 seat place. We climbed upstairs to eat outdoors at a picnic table under the none- to - sturdy looking windmill arms. Another review shows a kids ride area. no such thing. Stay home.

Best nasty hot dogs in town. By nasty, I mean nasty for your health, but delicious for your stomach. Nobody makes a chili cheese dog as good as the Windmill, and their cheese soaked french fries are wonderful. Heck, you can eat there as much as you want, just make sure you triple up on your Lipitor and don't tell... More

I have been going to the Windmill since I was a kid and I always enjoy a trip to the Windmill for a hot dog and cheese fries! It is a tradition in my family to go here whenever in the area. The hot dogs are huge and more meat hangs out of the bun then in! Couple it with... More
