Everyone in Reykjavik seem to like their hot dogs, so we just had to try one. I had fried onions and mustard on mine. The hot dog had a slightly different flavor to it than a ball park frank. The bun was great, the mustard...More

I came to this place to compare with the other hotdog stand. As I mentioned in my other review, the dog taste good, nothing spectacular, just different. Probably because it is lamb based. Same here. The price here is the same as the other one....More

Looking forward to trying the infamous Iceland hot dog. Honestly, the dog itself tasted exactly like an Oscar Meyer meat wiener on white bread. It was not bad, but certainly not what I was expecting. The mustard, onions and other toppings are what gave it...More
