Yummy!

The pizza was very yummy, but the chicken fingers were not too great. The staff was nice though and pizza was good!

We ordered crab cakes and got what mostly was a bread cake. Hardly any crab in it. Nasty tasting! When we complained the manager gave us attitude. Go next door to Jumbo's. So much better.

We stopped in for traditional boardwalk fare with air conditioning and seating. I always get a gyro and my husband had pizza. Great as usual.

To have been on the Wildwood boardwalk with multiple locations since the 70's they are definitely doing it right! Actually I think they perfected the boardwalk grub but also offer decent Italian meals and even offer a spectacular OCEAN VIEW at the one next to Mariners Landing. Affordable and good ......that's a winner!

The food here at The Original Hot Spot is very good and the best part is year after year it is consistent. If you have eaten here ten years ago and liked it then you will be happy that the quality has not changed one bit.

I visited Hot Spot #4 to grab a quick lunch. I don't even like pizza and I loved their pizza. Its not too thick, it's not to thin, not too crunchy, not too chewy.. it's just right! They give you a big slice too. My partner and I ordered 2 slices each and we both had a piece leftover it's... More

It's been a couple years since we were down at the Jersey shore and we always find ourselves going to one of the Hot Spot places. This time we ate at Hot Spot V located at E. Maple and the Boardwalk. Great food and friendly service. The portions are big so go in hungry. See pics attached.

I have been going to the Hot Spot since I was a kid. I am now taking my own family there! I love the food and the service has always been good. Their prices are a bit high but the food is great and it is in a great location. If you can get there early for the breakfast specials... More
