We LOVE hot dogs and are always disappointed in most restaurants so-called 'Chicago dogs' as most are really imitations. We were pleasantly surprised that Hot Dog Heaven makes the real deal authentic Chicago dog - poppy seed bun, hot dog casing that crunches when you bite and all the correct condiments. There are quite a few other hot dog choices... More

I am not a huge fan of hot dogs, but these are seriously the best in Orlando! I started going about 6 years ago, and have loved them ever since. The hot dogs often have a snap when you bite into them, which I like. I see other reviews of kids not liking them, and that is probably the reason... More

We went there on the Christmas eve because I heard good things about it. Kids ordered hot dogs and we ordered chicken sausages. Chicken sausages were really good but the kids were not thrilled about their hot dogs though they generally like any hot dogs! The service was good and prompt. We drove out of our way to go there...

Have been going for over 20 years. They do the Chicago style just right and the fries are peanut oil fantastic. Often busy and worth the wait. They serve em up quickly and there is still some room left outside to eat.

The best hot dogs in Orlando! They use Vienna hot dogs and they make all their sides in house! I always get the chili, cheese and slaw dog! Also their fries are cooked to order and are so fresh and hot!

Probably some of the fastest and most friendliest service I have had in a long time. My friend and I walked into a huge line at lunch. I was amazed at how fast it moved and people were getting their food. We both got the Chicago dog which was just as great as I remembered them being 20 years ago.... More

Two of the narrowest dining/drinking establishments are on this odd narrow strip of land between SR 50 and the adjoining service street: Hot Dog Heaven and Dancers Royale, both claustrophobically narrow railway car style buildings which always seem packed with people. As for Hot Dog Heaven, the dogs are quite good (I get the chili dog with onions, but I'm... More

Adults hotdogs very good; children hotdogs tough. Don't order them. Fun by the side of the road place for just a change of pace.
