Really love this place for so many reasons. Reminds me of home as they have brought not only the authentic products (Vienna Beef dogs, weirdly green relish, Rosen's poppyseed buns) to So Fla but the shop feels like Chicago too! Hot Dogs are prepared to a T without any ketchup. Small menu with just a few things that are done... More

There is no way you can get out of here eating only one hot dog. The owners, Barry and his wife have been here for years. No matter if you get the Chicago style or a creation of your own, you will be satisfied and filled. They are served on a seeded roll which simply adds to the experience. I... More

Passed this place dozens of times but never stopped. Saw a group of bikers so decided to stop in. Glad I did. For the Chicago dog fan it is spot on and the fries are as good as drive-in spuds get. But in my opinion, get the chili dog. Same bun, dog onion and mustard, but the chili with beans... More

Found Hot Dog Heaven a few years ago and head there every time I am in Fort Lauderdale. The place is really small and there's not much seating, but I have always gotten a seat. The hot Dogs and everything else they serve are just great. It is a friendly place and you can tell they have a very loyal... More

It's not just that they get the hot dog right, the whole place is right. You could drop this place right into a Chicago neighborhood and it would fit in. Bring a small car, walk, or take Uber because parking isn't easy a lunch time. Try the hot tamale.

My mom and I had hotdogs and fries. We didn't have the sausages. We both got a hot dog and fries each. We needed something for lunch. The guys there were great and patient with my mom while she decided what she wanted! She got the Chicago dog minus the hot peppers. I got the sauerkraut and mustard dog. Very... More

I was born in Chicago and have lived in south Florida for the last 25 years and one of my favorite Chicago memories is a good hot dog! Well I found it at Hot Dog Heaven in ft Lauderdale and they are the real deal! Not only do they have the classic hot dogs but also hot Chicago beef sandwiches!... More

This place is good when it's open. The Chicago Dog is great and the dill pickles are good too. The service is just okay, as the owner is a grouch (I've noticed it every single time I've been there and so does whoever I'm with). The cashier and the other cook are both always friendly enough. Prices are a bit... More
