I read lots of excellent reviews about this place prior to my visit and therefore had quite high expectations of it. Turns out it's just a plain boiled sausage in a plain hotdog bun, with special Icelandic sauce, crispy onions and the standard ketchup and mustard should you want some. I liked the Icelandic sauce and the crispy onions gave it the crunch, but there wasn't any wow factor to it and it certainly didn't blow my mind. It's incredibly cheap - only 2 euros for a hot dog and 1 euro for a soft drink, so I guess that adds to the overall appeal. We walked past this place a few times and every single time there was a queue - some small tours even drove specifically to purchase hot dogs from here. It's a decent spot for a quick and cheap snack but having had lots of hot dogs at other parts of the world I don't think this is particularly outstanding.

While in Iceland recently I had to hunt down the famous hot-dog stand. After a few (quite a few) beers I stumbled around to track this place down and joined a short but surprisingly long queue. So I ordered three, two for myself and one for someone else. The first arrived and a slurped it straight down, raw white onions and crispy fried onions, ketchup, sweet brown mustard called pylsusinnep, and remoulade, a sauce made with mayo, capers, mustard, and herbs. It disappeared instantly. The second I took my time and savoured for longer.

People say this is the best hot dog you'll ever have - and quite frankly (boom-tish!) they're absolutely correct. It's the fried onions that give it an extra kick. Get two hot dogs and a soda, admire the fact that Bill Clinton frequents BBP for a late night snack and enjoy the best hot dog in the world!

I was skeptical it would live up to its hype but it surprisingly it really was delicious. I got it with 'everything' which had nice crunchy onions, ketchup, and a sweet mustard.

A plain lamb hotdog with a strange mustard. Had better hotdogs from the street vendors in nyc, but hey its an icelandic hotdog. So dont expect to much and enjoy the ride.

As a fan of beef hot dogs, I went into this experience not expecting much and unfortunately, I didn't enjoy my hot dog. It lacked the usual snap and consistency of most hotdogs, instead offering a unique and mushy flavor. Everyone else in line seemed to enjoy it, just not me. But, they accept credit cards and have fountain drinks, a big win for me.

My daughter and I grabbed a hot dog here after reading reviews and that it was a must do in Iceland. We just finished a walking tour and we were famished. However, the hot dog was nothing special - and we love boiled hot dogs! Grab one just to say you did it, but don't expect much.

Went here on vacation with my dear friend James. This place has the best crepes! Talk to the manager Porarinn! He told us where all the locals dine!
