Only place to go when family comes back to visit Liverpool

Hot dogs are the reason peoole go but we go for the nostalgia and years of my Dad taking us there. Coneys, double dogs, cold beer, even fish & sausage sandwiches now on the menu and it still feels like a Seinfeld episode of the Soup Nazi if you don't order correctly from the right person but the... read more

Nostalgic, retro, totally classic quick-serve eatery. These dogs have been around forever and the food is still delicious. My go-to is a coney with a chocolate milk (hello, childhood). Be sure to try both a hot dog AND a coney though—they very different and unique and not like any other version or imposter you've tasted. And don't forget the mustard.

I've been going to Heid's of Liverpool since I was small. It is the perfect place for a quick lunch, or a small snack......and it is ideal if you are going to "Lights on the Lake"; as you can pick up a little food and drive through the park! The menu is small, but this is a place you should... More

A visit to Heid's in my youth was a special treat so, now over 50 years later, just had to visit when we were in the area. It was as good as I remembered.

Nothing beats Heids, been in the same location, doing the same thing making the best Cooneys and hot dogs. You don't go there for the ambience, just great food. Don't skip the ice cream either, very generous scoop.

We visited a friend in Liverpool, and stopped in for dinner. The grilled hotdogs were very good. They also have a good mustard. I also tried the sausage pepper and onion. It was also very good. The line was not bad at all. The people behind the counter were very nice to a first timer. It is very close to... More

There probably are very few people in Central NY that have never taken a trip to Heid's. This is a no frills diner with a limited menu but their hotdogs and coneys are unrivaled. You can always tell when Spring arrives because there is a line out the door. You can't go wrong with a Heid's hotdog and chocolate milk.... More

Enjoyed fun staff, ate hot dogs, steak sandwich, fries and chicken tenders followed by ice cream--all very good...steady flow of diners on Thursday evening.

Hotdogs are their specialty. The restaurant has been on "You Gotta Eat Here" TV show, and it ranks high for hot dog lovers. They have all the toppings, too. It's a relic of a place (probably built in the 50's) with very basic seating area...a great place for a snack. It's a popular place for the locals and there's usually... More
