Heid's- "Food you'll Like" has been around since the Stone Age. The inside seating area is small and outdated, but is supplemented by a covered area outside with picnic tables. During nice weather there is usually a line out the door. A few years past the service was surly and they refused to carry ketchup. Now they are more cordial... More

When in Liverpool, you have to stop at Heids. Their Coneys or "White Hots" are to die for. Be sure not to miss this treat!!! BTW...this place should be an historic landmark; it has not changed in over 50 years!

A must see in Syracuse. Everything is so yummy. Coneys are delicious, try the Texas Hots for a little kick. Chili cheese fries will keep you coming back for more. Don't forget to have a chocolate milk to wash this deliciousness down. All the fried stuff is yummy. Fried pickles, French fries, onion rings. I could go on and on... More

This is a timeless classic place. It is a must stop when I am in the area. Got a couple hot dogs. Someone else got a snappy. Hot onion rings. And of course- chocolate milk! Mustard didn't seem as spicy hot as I recall. I prefer it hotter. Always a must stop!

By far, my favorite hot dog place. I went several times as a teenager and when my husband and I went to northern New York on a recent visit, I introduced him to Heid's. We went 4 times in two weeks. Love the coney's, the dogs, the split rolls and the onion rings. It is an old restaurant with a... More

Great local place, coneys and Frank's are the foundation. I had the Philly cheesesteak and it was "ok". 5 stars for this place is a stretch but it was very good and deserving of 4 stars.

Line can be long but move along very fast. Well worth the wait and you won't be disappointed. Cheap eats and very family friendly with a ice cream stand and park/playground across the street.

We stop at Heids every time we get to Liverpool. They always have great franks and they didn't disappoint this time. Great service, they are pretty quick even with the long lines
