Quick snack before ball game. confusing menu..noisy but fun for kids. table delivery was a plus. needs to serve iced tea or something besides carbonated soft drinks.

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

Great place to stop for a quick lunch. Lots of options! Fries are incredible. Friendly staff and very clean.

Stopped at Hot Dog Heaven for lunch during another road trip along I-80. Grumpy ordered onions on his dog and says the onions are just like Nathan’s - raw. That was a nice taste of home. The chili on the chili dog was very good....More

We have been coming here for years and the food is very good! The ice cream is awesome too. They also sell chicken and burgers.

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.

We come here often, anytime you ask our son where he wants to eat he picks Hot Dog Heaven! BLT hotdog is my favorite and you have to get the fries!

My kids love to go there and then head across the street to get ice cream from the Hastee Tastee. Downtown Amherst is a great place to visit. Hot Dog Heaven has great hot dogs, kielbasa, sausage and great fresh cut french fries.

Food always the same, pretty good but can't get over what it costs for a few hotdogs. There are better options for the price

No more dollar dogs with the new owners. Very rarely go there now. They still have coupons and that is pretty much a necessity with prices. Fries are still good!! Always clean and quick service.
