Not a romantic place but featured on several tv reality shows and packed with lines out the door during lunch times. You order at the counter and pick up and pay further down the line then take the... More

Heid's is a local tradition for hot dogs. There are some quirks but it is worth a visit. First timers should try both types of hot dogs

Heid's lived up to its reputation of serving great tasting hot dogs. I read a lot of reviews and was concerned that they would be overrated by people lost in nostalgia, but they proved they deserve the praise of their many very loyal customers. We had the regular dog and the Coney Island and enjoyed them both. Seating is a... More

Stopped here on our way to Rochester with someone who used to live in the area. Was pleasantly surprised by how good the food here was. Granted, if you don't like hot dogs, this is not the place for you. The whites were incredible and there is something about how they prepare them that makes the perfect snap when you... More

The best hot dog stand in upstate New York. People from outside the area just have to try the experience of Heid's. Known for its Hoffman's hot dogs. During the month of February Heid's has a 2 for 1 special for their hot dogs. Come and enjoy the experience of waiting in a line for the best grilled hot dogs... More

Heid's has been going strong for many years. It's a throwback in terms of architecture, and it has the best hot dogs and coneys (white franks made with pork) anywhere. Service is good, even at the busiest times. Don't miss it if you're in the Syracuse area.
