If you have never had a "deerhead hotdog" you have absolutely no idea what you are missing. I believe they are the best in the world.

This is the only that has a pizza oven which means u can get a Deerhead Pizza! MY FAVORITE! They make the dough and pizza fresh so not sure about what the reviewer in 2014 was talking about it being a frozen crust... has never been every time I have gotten them. Perhaps they tried that 4 a while? targe,... More

Took out two orders of the Monday 50 cent wing special. Buffalo hot and Asian flavors. Got home to reveal what seemed like sauced pigeon wing pieces that were firm and chewy. For $5.50 our lesson was, you get what you pay for. The sauce was good tho.

My favorites stop for a good lunch. The hot dogs and sauce are the best. The fries with malt vinegar are the perfect compliment.

My family and I have been to Deerhead twice - once because Moe's next door was way too busy! They have a good variety of sandwiches, hotdogs, pizza, etc and free popcorn which I like, even though it was stale the one day. The fries come in large portions, but the hotdogs and sandwiches are pretty modestly sized, so good... More

I finally stopped in to the Deerhead Hot Dogs in Bear, DE. I ordered a cheese pizza and french fries. The cheese pizza was very disappointing with a pre-frozen crust and what cheese was on it had little flavor and their "Beach Fries"were no such thing, right out of the freezer and into the fryer. You could purchase the same... More

If you love spicy, then the Deerhead hotdogs with the works is what you're looking for. We've been eating Deerhead hotdogs for over 40 years. They have the best boardwalk fries around. Depending on the time of day the service maybe slow, but it is definitely worth the wait!

Ordered a big order from 5 guys and a very small order from here. 5 guys was done in 10 minutes...30 minutes later and I'm still waiting for a single dog and milkshake from here. :(
