People go on and on about how wonderful Icelandic hotdogs are. Yes they are good. And yes Icelanders like them. And yes they're a fun thing to do to for a proper Iceland experience...But...they are only hotdogs! This hot dog stand near the harbor is particularly good and if you you only have one in Iceland why not go here.

Sometimes you just want a good quick nosh, without pretense and without sitting down. This is on such place and in a City that is surprisingly big on Hot Dogs and Burgers.
Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur is a popular hot dog stand in central Reykjavík and has been operating since 1937. In August 2006, The Guardian selected Bæjarins Beztu as the best hot dog stand in Europe.
It is believed that the majority of Icelanders have eaten at Bæjarins Beztu. Foreign visitors are often brought to the stand by locals to introduce them to the hot dogs there, which are often called "The Icelandic National Food." Among famous people who have eaten at Bæjarins Beztu are Bill Clinton and James Hetfield, vocalist of the popular heavy metal band Metallica.
A hot dog is cheap and condiments include ketchup, sweet mustard, fried onion, raw onion and remoulade, a mayonnaise-based sauce with sweet relish. Hot dogs are often ordered with "the works," i.e., all condiments, or in Icelandic "eina með öllu".

Seems Icelanders love their superlatives. Translated, this place is called "Best Hot Dogs in Town" and if you can judge from the long queues every night, this might very well be the case. Even Bill Clinton has famously had a hot dog here - you can find a caricature of him getting served on the back wall. Cheap, good food!

If you eat meat, you have to have an Icelandic hot dog. Seriously...the best in the world. And this is the best place in Reykjavik to get one (the name means "the best hot dog in town"). Ask for everything which includes raw and fried onions and remoulade. Sweet, savory and plain old delicious and tastes even better after a long night out.
