Always good.

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.

Quick service and the vegetable omelet was great! Tons of veggies and good portion. Even better than another breakfast restaurant plus cheaper!

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

...I was pleasantly surprised! Not that I expected "slop", but I will say I usually don't do the boardwalk, open-air style bazaar of food places like this. Well, I was ignorant to think this was "one of them". For what it's worth, this was a GREAT go-to for quick, good, classic food! I had a cheesesteak hoagie that was on... More

This restaurant has a great location, and there is a great view of the beach in the back. The food was ok, but our waitress was so horrible you couldn't pay me to go back. She wasn't pleasant at all. She was an older lady, so she definitely should have known better. She was almost sarcastic and very rude. I... More

Never a disappointment and usually our first stop when we get to the Wildwood Boardwalk. Go for the Gyro!

We ate here last year and again last week while bike riding. Was a clean and inexpensive and good place to eat. Service was excellent and so was the food. Will be back!
