HDH is a family favorite for us! We often stop there for our after-church meal. The hotdogs are always done perfectly and the buns are soft and warm. The toppings are the best I have ever had. My favorite is the chili-slaw dog and it’s...More

Hot dog heaven has been a staple to the Amherst community for years. You can get many toppings on your dog to your liking. The fresh cut fries are some of the best around. Great casual dining.

Best hot dogs around! Old fashioned fries with vinegar are better than the fair fries. Great place to take the kids

It's a small hot dog place great for lunch, they have good fries some ice cream too I believe. If you have kids it's a good place for them, especially if it's nice out you sit on picnic benches because inside is a little cramped

Absolutely love the fries with cheese. A trick to save you a book or two is get the cheese on the side and you can put it on the hotdogs or the fries.
