Love the atmosphere and the fabulous food, no wonder people stand in line for it all the time! Their hot dogs are great!

Very diappointed. I live out of state but when I am in Syracuse it's one of my gotta stops. It was not good this time. I got a mixed double like usual. The hit dogs were thin, lacking in taste and the bun broke in half.....not going to give up on them totally but maybe you can't always go back.

I have personally been coming here for well over 50 years. It's expanded a bit, and I understand this is its second location, but the enduring charm of this place, is it hasn't grown into a huge conglomerate. It has stayed unassuming, and quaint. Basically a hot dog stand, the food is top notch, and offers "Coneys" (pronounced coonies by... More

A classic local Hot Dog joint. I especially love the coney and regular served in one bun! Fun to stop by, have a great dog and enjoy the great service. Wish I lived closer, I'd be a regular!

We were told this was a great local place to try, and were very happy we did. It's a diner type atmosphere, but you go through a line to order. Kind of old school but the food is great and pretty reasonably priced.

Place defines casual. When at Heid's located like right across the street from Lake Onondaga, you place your oder at the counter... but first...study the menu options so that you don't hold up the line. Be prepared for "Mel's Diner" attitude here. Even if their reputation precedes them in terms of how fabulous the hot dogs are, these are...some real... More

I was dying for a chili dog as I stepped up to the counter. What I got was a 2 oz. dog on a slice of bread with two tablespoons of chili on it-- for $ 4.50. Really? I asked for a little more chili, and the guy behind the counter graciously gave me another tablespoon full. “Can I get... More

Had my very first coney at Heids. The regulars get two coneys and a chocolate milk. So that's what I got with spicy mustard. I was told next time to try the cheese fries and then get an ice cream next door.

Stopped in at Heid's as I usually do during my annual visit to CNY. Asked for a double coney special as I usually do and received franks instead. I kind of frowned but decided to try them anyways - nope, not as good as the coneys! Maybe because I was wearing clothes showing that I was a west coaster they... More

Very simple menu, but it's simple for a reason...You don't need anything else!! Coneys are great! The condiments are simple (mostly different types of relishes, plus ketchup and yellow mustard), but it goes well with hot dogs & coneys!! I was driving through and we wanted to go back there on the way back!
