Blog rated WindMill Restaurants #1 for fries in NJ.

"New Jerseyans love our fries! We’ve all made a late night diner run for disco fries with cheese and gravy, and most of us have a favorite french fry spot. The following are some of the most popular in the state for their unique flavors and delicious taste." - Posted in New Jersey October 27, 2015 by Kristen Koennemann


Have them plain, with our legendary cheese sauce or with chili. These go great with our famous hot dogs or hamburgers.

So Much More Than 50 Years of Hot Dogs

( Excerpt from Calvin Schwartz • NJ Shore Thing Magazine • October 2013)

I could develop cologne from the amazing aroma of WindMill hot dogs that are beginning their next 50 years of joyous and wondrous consumption. Driving down Route 36 for this interview and photo session, I kept thinking questions about food and hot dogs and surmised much of our time together would be food driven. Did I ever dial a wrong number and yes, never assume. Steven Levine and his sister Rena Levine Levy sat down with me in back of the restaurant by a window overlooking the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Their warm effusive smiles set the mood; WindMill tee shirts messaged humility and pride. Click here to see our 3-page spread
