I may be aging myself HOWEVER, I can recall the opening day for Hot Dog Heaven......the quality has not changed. Fresh cut fries, top quality hotdogs.... toppings are plentiful on your dog. Always busy......always sending out coupons..... best place for a quick lunch or dinner.

Hot Dog Heaven is a unique restaurant just up the street from the high school and many athletic fields.

The price is very reasonable and their family packs... More

Great hot dogs, and the best piping hot fries. Malt vinegar and stadium mustard add to the flavor. Hot dogs at their best...

I used to live down the street so my kids grew up with eating here. The fries are great and huge. Get them with cheese sauce and they became a full meal themselves or cut down on the price and share for the whole family. Buy the extra toppings on the dogs they make them into true big city gourmet... More

Good fries and great chili dogs add cheese if you like. The fries are cut fresh never frozen the difference is amazing.

You have to try this place I found out it's been here for years and this is the first time I've had the privilege to eat here! The name says it all! Great food and quaint atmosphere try the jumbo all beef with all the fixings.

I used to live down the street so my kids grew up going here. If you dont like hotdogs they have a huge variety of other items. The fries are great especially with cheese sauce and 1 order serves the whole family. If you dont want food you can just come for the ice cream.

"You're not from Amherst if you've never been to Hot Dog Heaven"! We love it there. Family owned and operated. Your choice of toppings and fresh cut fries. Cute atmosphere and very good food! Local hangout place. Good desserts too.
