Somehow this ended up with Liberty State Park which is an error. The hot dogs are at the Windmill, they are delicious and we have to get one every time we are in town. I have tried to correct this but not much help from TripAdvisor. On Wednesday it is Senior Day, half price food for 62 or better, eat... More

Best hotdogs on the Jersey shore!!! Once you hit the beach you have to go to Windmill. The one in Belmar is a better location but the food is great in any location!

If you were born and raised in Long Branch you know that there are two kinds of people, Windmill people and Max's people. I am Team Windmill! The dogs are crisp on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside. The juices released on that first bite are sublime. You can go for the cheese fries but "Pro Tip"... More

We stopped here on a hot dog tour of NJ with my sister and had to try their hot dog. It's got a great snap (natural casing), high in salt, chili is a tomato base so not what we're use to. Overall it's a good hot dog and worth the trip to the shore.

I love hot dogs and this is as any I have visited around the country. There is something special about a great dog or two after a long summer day on the beach. Cheese, chili and brown mustard and I am very content. Simple meal very well done.

Great little stand for boardwalk food, had a chilli cheese dog and cheese fries which were both good, they were making flame grilled burgers that looked and smelled amazing, love to stop here when in the area. Be prepared this place gets crazy busy on a nice day.

The WindMill is a great place for lunch, dinner or after hours. They have the best hours when you can't sleep and want a quick bite to eat. They have the absolute best fries, hands down. Their dogs are amazing, their burgers are always fresh and cooked to perfection and a must try is their steak sandwich. You will be... More

This is a roadside hot do and burger joint. I think kids live it, but you, as an adult have to tolerate salty foods. Do this for your kids, and you just might like it
