Why locals love it

Well.. I lied. It's not really a restaurant, but a hot dog stand. The British newspaper Guardian said them to be the best hot dog stand in Europe! The line can be long, but its still worth it.

Why you should visit it

If you will not visit this yourself, some Icelander will drag you there anyway. Could be the best hot dogs you will ever try.

Special tip

Order like a local and yell proudly "eina með öllu" (e. one with everything) when it's your turn.

Is this stand still open? I read in the UK news that the area is under development. Has it moved?

They are open, but temporarily moved just across the street as the area is under construction. They will be back at their same old spot next Christmas.

If you are on the run and want a quick bite, Bæjarins Beztu (The town's best) is the place. The Icelandic hot dog is really tasteful so stuffing only mustard on it isn't the best choice here. Try asking for "eina með öllu" ("one with everything") and you wont be disappointed!
