Hot Dog Heaven has been serving "Chicago Style" (and many other styles) of hot dogs since 1987 so you know they have to be doing something right! Well they are. The hot dogs are very tasty. You can get your hot dog, either in regular or jumbo size, in a variety of styles. From plain, to cheese dog to chili... More

I'm always looking for new and interesting places to eat for lunch when I'm at work on the far side of Orlando. I don't particularly love or hate hotdogs however I wanted to give this a whirl since it was a little bit different. The only downside is that off you're not familiar with the highways and streets directly around... More

Husband & I have been coming here for years! Owner & associates are fast & efficient so if ya need a quick lunch, they'll serve ya fast. Oh & of course the Chicago hot dogs are the best (with the works including the bright green relish!) Remind me of my sweet home Chicago!! Love all the Chicago memorabilia too!

I know this sort of place is the 'norm' for Americans but for Brits (especially) this kind of roadside diner is the stuff of movies. At the side of Colonial (SR50) is a diner with a ubiquitous in-your-face giant hot dog on a fork. Whenever we are in Orlando, we always take time out to drop in and eat. Inside... More

If you are looking for any of the tried and true hot dog stands from Chicago, this assuming small white building will surely bring back memories. Nice array of hot dog selections. Whether regular or jumbo in size, the hot dogs have good snap, the buns steamed as expected, and finding yourself eating several in a single sitting is the... More

The best hot doggery in Orlando. The Chicago style jumbo basket is the best. Celery salt and the sport peppers along with a steamed bun. Mmmmmm They do the fries in peanut oil I believe and they are the best. Only downside is that when busy the line wraps around the inside of the restaurant making it difficult to access... More

So excited to have found this place!! For some odd reason, a good hot dog is hard to find in Orlando! On my visit I tried two different kind of hot dogs. The Chicago Dog reminded me of my many trips to Chicago - no difference - very authentic Chicago dog. Which means this... it was incredible! The other dog... More
