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

No one wanted to cook...so we ordered hot dogs from the WindMill. We added everything...sauerkraut, onions, tomatoes, pickle relish, pickles, more sauerkraut...ketchup, seasoned mustard, sides of french fries and onion rings... perfect. Really. Perfect.

There's a local contest between the Windmill and another well-known hot doggery - Windmill prevails. Fries are also good; burgers and other items less so.

people behind counter were not very nice, seemed as though we were bothering them by asking questions about themenu..they advertise that the sell milkshakes, banana splits and other types of ice cream, yet when we asked to buy some, they told us the ice cream was frozen to hard for them to scoop up. meal was average, prices high.

If you want a hot dog that will repeat on you all night or a steak sandwich filled with grizzle, this is your place
