Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A must-try while in Tromso - be prepared to wait a bit in the line (in high season more than a bit, as the lady at the counter said sometimes they serve up to 500 hotdogs a day!). The reindeer hotdogs are served with interesting...additions, like marinated beetroot, so be sure to ask for the truly Norwegian style one. There is not much space at the tables, so at times you just need to grab the food and go.More

Like most tourists we had to try this place, reported to be the smallest BAR and restaurant in the universe Visited in Feb , 1st time while on shore from a boat cruise and then we spent 2 days in Tromso later in our trip...In both occasions I was quite surprised at the queues and some time before it opens. On our second visit we decided to try the reindeer hotdog and around 11.20am we already saw a few people queuing, it opens at 12noon daily. We decided to join the queue to avoid a long wait The hotdogs were really nice , we had it with the fried onions and mustard sauce. You have quite a few sauce options. Once they opened the 1 man show provided really quick and friendly service. During our trip the cost was 60 kroner each We sat down in the little covered area and was definitely worth the waitMore

Don’t miss this special place! It’s worth every minute of standing in line. Let me add that I don’t like hotdogs, but these are exceptional. And I’m now on a search for the hot wine recipe.

Queue in the morning, queue in the afternoon & queue in the evening but definitely worth the wait for the tasty & famous Reindeer hot dog. Will definitely recommend & worth a wait ;)

Famous hot dog stand in Tromso, we decided to give it a go for a quick snack. When we arrived, around 1pm there was a queue. Looked like all tourists. We waited and ordered 2 reindeer and beef hot dogs which is their speciality. The...hot dogs were ok. Nothing special. Good service, lots of choices of sauces and toppings. It also serves hot and cold drinks but we didn't have any. Go for a look at the "worlds smallest bar" and quirky building but I wouldn't bother with the hotdogs.More

We’ve never eaten reindeer before so had to try a hotdog. We queued for about 30 mins in -14 but it was worth it. Tasted really good and we sat around the back in the wooden area on a bench by the fire pit.

We passed this place a couple of times and there are constant queues both tourists and locals. We stopped for lunch and had reindeer and beef hotdogs with traditional toppings. We had asked the really helpful staff member to recommend the best toppings and what...she recommended was perfect. It was a snowy day, so we sat in the covered area, by the wood burner and also had a delicious mulled wine with almonds and raisins. A perfect and delicious lunch in a beautiful setting.More

We waited days to grab a hot dog, finally managed it on the last night. Long queue but well worth it, very tasty and worth every penny…

This place constantly has a long line for very good reason- the food and drinks are great! My husband had the traditional beef/reindeer hotdog and I had the vegetarian one. The toppings and hotdogs were really tasty as well as the hot cocoa. Food in...Norway tends to be more on the expensive side so this is a really nice budget friendly option and the ladies working the counter were very friendly.More

Got to agree with all the others the reindeer hotdog with fried and picked onions topping is a delight. The mulled wine with almonds and raisins in it is also worthy of note, tastes amazing (and different from all the other mulled wines and gluhweins...I have tasted around the world). Especially nice and warming when the weather is being unkind 😂 Always a queue but very friendly and quick turnaround with an under cover seating area out back with a charcoal fire pit to dry out and warm up with. All in all a great quick bite spot!!More
