Ate here during a foodie tour on June 8. While not a hot dog fan this one was outstanding. It was a mixture of meats from what I understood from the tour guide. Bill Clinton and Anthony Bourdain have also eaten here so it attracts...More

Get the works! You won't be sorry! And don't think one is enough to share - you're gonna want your own!

I normally do not eat hot dogs, nor lamb, of any kind, but wow! You order the hot dog, and they give you the "works," but I declined the raw onion, and the mayo. I settled for mustard, and toasted onions. Highly recommend..we went twice!

Unquestionably, the food at this stand is the cheapest in Reykjavik!! That said, you get what you pay for which is not much. The hot dog itself is rather tasteless. They do have onion and dried onion toppings but no sauerkraut and no real mustard!!...More
