Island Hots in Carolina Beach has given Pleasure Islanders a new reason to fall in love with Hot Dogs all over again.  They have taken the idea of a Hot Dog stand to new heights with what is one of the Island’s favorite new restaurants.  Located on Cape Fear Boulevard near the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, Island Hots resides in a building that has long been known as the place to get hot dogs, but they came in and completely revamped the venue added their personal touch to everything from the menu to the beautiful outdoor seating area, and made Island Hots an insanely popular attraction for beachgoers, boardwalkers and anyone else who craves a delicious hot dog made just how they like it! 
Island Hots officially opened in March of 2012 but there was a lot of work put in before they were unveiled to the public.  Not only did they redo the interior and exterior of the building, they also completely redid the huge outdoor seating area turning it into a beautiful masterpiece of landscaping for the Boardwalk area and a popular vantage point for the weekly fireworks throughout the summer. 
While the location is attractive in its own right the real reason people flock to Island Hots on a daily basis is the delicious food and excellent service.  Island Hots specialty is their huge selection of hot dogs that are available in a variety of styles including longtime favorites, Island Hots own creations or just how you want it with any and all of your favorite toppings. 
Start with your choice of hot dog from the selection of original, all beef, turkey or vegetarian and then pick your “Island Favorite” like the “Bacon-Cheese and mustard” or the “Carolina Dog.”  Get adventurous and try something new every time or be creative and concoct your own specialty dog! Their famous Island Relish is a spicy treat that you may want on every hot dog you ever eat again in your life! 
If you’re not in the mood for a hot dog then try something else off the menu like their crispy chicken tenders or the loaded nachos with chili, cheese, jalapenos, mild salsa and onions.  Make a meal by adding one of their sides like beer battered onion rings, chips or natural cut fries.  If a huge and monstrous meal then you should order the “Island Plate.” 
The “Island Plate” is a large helping of fried potatoes and macaroni salad topped with two original hot dogs then smothered in Island Hots own Rochester chili, diced onions, mustard and served with a dinner roll.  If you have room for dessert try their old fashioned soft serve ice cream or cookies. 
Wash it all down with a root beer float or your favorite cold beer!   Like any establishment with “dog” in the name should be, Island Hots is dog friendly and welcomes your furry friends to hang out and enjoy the outdoor seating area. 
Island Hots is located in Carolina Beach at 103-A Cape Fear Boulevard just half a block from the Boardwalk Gazebo.  They are open every day from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  They are a family owned and operated business that is proud to serve the Pleasure Island area and they are extremely appreciative of the help, support and warm reception they received from the community.  If you would like to find out more about Island Hots or to place an order to pick up please give them a call at (910) 274-5875 and to keep up with all of the latest going on throughout the year please visit their Facebook page!
