A Dash Of Nostalgia At Heid’s

It is no exaggeration to say that the humble hot dog has occupied a special place in the hearts of American consumers for generations. You can enjoy a helping of nostalgia along with a  world-class hot dog (and other American classics at Heid’s of Liverpool, NY, a Liverpool drive-in dining landmark that has been around (in its current form) since 1917.

These are not your ordinary supermarket dogs. People come from far and wide to enjoy the unique flavors and that classic grill snap of the Hofmann dogs that can only be provided by a dining destination that has resisted the urge to modernize a classic. These dogs have stood the test of time, being made to the same formulation for over 100 years. It doesn’t matter whether your tastes run to the classic or the coney (or the magnificent Hofmann Snappy made with pork and veal) – you’ll find a Heid’s creation that will satisfy your hunger for a truly classy dog. It is the reason that this is a place that attracts not only customers from nearby Syracuse but also from much further afield.

If you want to ignore the joys of the dogs Heid’s has also built an enviable reputation with its other offerings such as the humble grilled cheese, the exceptional Philly Cheesesteak and some juicy and flavorful chicken tenders. Don’t ignore the sides such as the homemade fries, onion rings, and fried pickles. And certainly don’t neglect the Mozzarella Sticks.  

Heid’s does not only offer the joys of a perfectly made hot dog (and other American classic diner fare). It plays host to regular events that make each and every visit a delight. For instance, on Wednesday and Thursday nights there is live music to be enjoyed. On the second Wednesday of every month, the Syracuse Corvette Club hosts an evening where members show off some of the most stunning examples of this American classic automobile.

Heid’s also has a fabulous selection of ice creams. You can also load up on Heid’s merch at the online store. Everything from Tees to their signature mustard, caps, and coffee mugs are available.

If you are ever in the vicinity of Syracuse you would be remiss to miss out on the classic American diner experience at Heid’s. Some things don’t need to be modernized. They are simply classics in their own right. Go and treat yourself to one of their famous dogs – it is a decision you will not regret.
