I had my first Icelandic hotdog and ice cream here! Both were very good! The hotdog culture is so interesting. They use lamb meat. This will be a great stop for you during happy hour!

I went out of my way to find this place based upon the recommendations of others. It's "famous". But, it only has one type of hot dog. It's boiled and the topping were just ok. The bun isn't extraordinary. I prefer spicy mustard and theirs...More

Cool little place, nice to sample some authentic Icelandic hotdogs and to see what different toppings options you can go for. Expensive for a hot dog but in terms of the city, very cheap!

Before going to Iceland, I had no idea of that country's love for the Hot Dog. What a wonderful discovery! I only wish I had more opportunities to try the different options. I had the Hot Dog Icelandic Classic, which is served on on a...More

When in Iceland, an Icelandic hot dog is a must try. Have “one with everything” and an Applesin for the full experience. A no frills hot dog stand in a main square with little indoor seating...

My second taste of the amazing Icelandic hotdog. There weren't many people so the service was smooth, it is a very delicious hotdog with great sauce and I really liked the crunchy onions. Great hotdog, you don't have look any further for a nice lunch...More

This tiny joint is smack dab in the center of town. The hot dog is delish, on a toasted bun with all the fixings. Hit it a couple of times, especially if you're going broke on Reykjavik restaurants. I got the regular one and enjoyed...More
