I really like these hot dogs. Wish I had a location near me. It's a large hot dog in a natural casing with a good snap.

Let’s be clear, this is fast food. Butcher quality hot dogs, burgers, chicken sandwiches, etc. are on the menu. The fried mushrooms with horseradish are addicting. There is seating upstairs. But, this is more of a to-go place.

The Windmill has been around for decades and it was a favorite spot in my youth many, many years ago. When returning to Long Branch to reconnect with friends, it was a pleasurable idea when my friends suggested we eat lunch here. The hot dogs...are as good as I remembered. The staff is efficient, though the crowds can be extensive. This trip for the first time ever, we sat upstairs. I honestly never ate in, so this was the first time ever we sat upstairs to enjoy our food. What a lovely sunny experience and under utilized. We were the only ones there.More

The Windmill in Long Branch's West End neighborhood has long been known as the best Hot Dogs at the Jersey Shore. They certainly deserve that reputation. Excellent food, and despite being packed the service was prompt and very efficient.

Stopped for lunch and the place was busy. They have a good menu and the employees were nice. The hot dogs and fries are always good. Definitely worth a stop while in the area.

Just testing your math.LOL. They said $4.81 on the phone, I guess that's with tax. Can order 24 for $102.00 uncooked, delivered to my door, which I did. About $4 a dog!
