“A Liverpool Landmark, Been Here Forever...Very Good”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I have been visiting Heid's of Liverpool for over 20 years now and this past fall was no exception when I was in town. We ordered one Coney, a regular hot dog, French fries and a beer to split. I hear from friends and relatives that the chocolate milk is a must, but I am no longer a chocolate milk fan (was when a child. but no longer am). The hot dogs and the Coney were delicious. The lines are always long (except for time in the winter) and like the outdoor tables to eat (which are useless from October - April, making the inside area cramped when it is cold out). I will definitely return to Heid's as I always do, especially this spring when back in the Syracuse area.

“A Syracuse area landmark & tradition”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Long lines are not uncommon in nice weather. "Since before your mother was born," is the take line. Not much changes here - HEY, it's HOT DOGS (and Coneys, of course) - and the locals wouldn't have it any other way. Eat with the locals. Get on line. get a double, load on the mustard, grab a picnic table . . .

“Best Hot Dogs in town”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

A visit to Heids is always a trip down memory lane. Heids cooks dogs and coneys in the same fashion as they did when I was a child. They are grilled crisp on the outside and put into their special buns. They offer spicy mustard, ketchup, onions, and relish for toppings. You can add additional sides and always follow your dog with chocolate milk or birchbeer. If you are ever in Syracuse, this is a restaurant you must try.
