I lot of Amherst people love this place and so keep coming back. It's nostalgia. I only visit once or twice a year and the restaurant keeps slipping downhill. Today I came in for a couple of jumbo dogs and some fries. I expected to get a couple of nice cooked dogs. Instead, they dropped the dogs into a basket... More

Just ok. Stopped in for lunch and was surprised to learn new management. The food quality just wasn't the same. Now we are just judging hot dogs and fries but in the past things seemed better quality then a gas station dog but not this time. I have to say it was about the same as a 2 for 99... More

Hot Dog Heaven is also Fresh Fry Heaven! Best place around for crispy fresh fries with cheese! The hot dogs are good too, but I would drive for miles for the fries.

If you are in the dog house or just seeking a no frills place with excellent hot dogs then this is your destination. A great place to bring the children and the grandkids! Many different desserts available too. French fries are hard to beat anywhere. Enjoy!

Having gone to school (briefly) in Amherst, it makes me smile when I hear people who live an hour from Hot Dog Heaven brag about their special hot dog place. It is a special place. Worth the drive, but don't forget the fries. Pretty little town. Beautiful churches. Go to St Joes for mass and stroll over to Hot Dog... More
