“Very good....”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

The hot dogs are great...wish they sold a cold beer with them.

Staff is fine....nice guys...

The owner- a little prickly...but hey..I'm not there to make friends but eat a good hot dog.

It's worth the visit

“Perfect Chicago Style Hot Dog”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

I'm a native Chicagoan and spend lots of time in South Florida. There is no other place, besides Hot Dog Heaven, to go when the craving for an authentic Chicago Style Hot Dog hits. This place does it right: Vienna all-beef dogs (they snap when you bite into them!), steamed poppy seed buns, neon green relish, chopped onions, pickles, tomatoes, hot peppers (I don't indulge), and celery salt. Traditionally, the Chicago dogs are boiled -- my preference - but they can also be grilled. One thing most Chicagoans NEVER do is put ketchup on their dogs, but Hot Dog Heaven is willing to accommodate all taste buds. Their fries are deeelish and fresh. They also have authentic Italian beef sandwiches and char grilled burgers (ketchup IS allowed on the burgers!). If the small parking lot is full, park in the public park's lot just one door west.

“chicago style hot dogs”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

yes yes and yes. I love this place. When I visit for a week in the spring, I come at least 3 times during my stay. Store bought hot dogs do not compare. Best fries, best hot dogs, best home made pickles and brownies. outdoor seating. great deal.

“Chicago-style hot dogs--what a treat!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Yes, I know hot dogs are not good for you (c'mon...it's not broccoli or wild salmon) --but that makes these Chicago-style hot dogs even more appealing! Hot Dog Heaven has been my special treat for the past 30 years, and the ONLY hot dog place I'll take my family to.

The hot dogs are so delicious...and the steamed Maryann poppy seed buns wrap those mouth-watering dogs perfectly...and the half-done pickles join the relish (we used to call it piccalilli), chopped onions, tomatoes, mustard and perfectly-done fries in a symphony of taste. Be sure to check out their yummy home-made brownies...soft and moist, but oh so chocolaty!

Closed on Sundays, open until 4 p.m. and try to get a seat inside--if you can!
