Rather small menu comprised of delicious hotdog combinations, fries and amazing onion rings. Great local food that is cheep, delicious, and filling.

“Great Local Hot Dog Joint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

We went to Island Hots on a Thursday night when there was a live band at the boardwalk and fireworks later in the night. Despite a huge crowd, the service was reasonably fast at Island Hots. The folks were friendly and the food was delicious! My husband had one chili dog initially, but then went back for two more! My 3 1/2 year-old daughter finished her whole dog, which, being a kids item, was served on a frisbee! I had the chicken fingers, which were good. We sat outside. The only problem was lots of seagulls came around trying to steal our fries! But one of the two owners came and sat near us and shooed away the birds so we could eat in peace! He was super nice and we got to hear the story of how he and his brother started the restaurant. Great place for a quick meal near the rides, boardwalk, music and fireworks!

Good tasting food, really nice and inviting staff. Probably the best and friendliest service during our vacation! Nice to sit outside and watch the rides at the boardwalk. Great cole slaw too!
