Windmill Hot Dogs set up open soon in Hoboken
The wait for WindMill “Gourmet Fast Food” will soon be over!
The new restaurant located at 79 Hudson Street is on the home stretch of renovations since taking over the spot from Lucky’s Burgers a few months ago.
Some notable changes to the establishment include rearranging the kitchen apparatus, making the griddle the “star attraction,” and one of the things that will first catch your eye when you walk in. Who doesn’t like to see “smiling hot dogs?”
Additionally, WindMill locations each have a custom murals painted inside, which reflect the character of the city or area they’re in. The Hoboken WindMill mural of course, is expected to have a depiction of Frank Sinatra, as well as other pop-culture icons – which will add to the fun experience patrons will have. The seating capacity is approximately 28 inside, and 22 outside during “sidewalk season.”
WindMill is especially proud of the quality of their food. From the hot dogs (which you can even buy in some select supermarkets), to the burgers, chicken sandwiches and even custom-cut rib-eye steaks. It looks like low-carbers can also get in on the action, with garden salads topped with any of their meats. The cheese fries are also known to be a very popular item.
Lastly, WindMill will have super-late hours on Fridays and Saturdays (open till 4am), as well as delivery – which will really appeal to residents in all corners of Hoboken.
Stay tuned for their “soft” opening (as soon as mid-next week), and other fun locally-inspired surprises that are in the works!
Good luck WindMill!
WindMill finally comes to Hoboken – replaces Lucky’s Burger
It’s been about three years in the business rumor mill here in on Hoboken411 – and has finally become reality.
WindMill Hot Dogs (burgers & fries too) is taking the spot at 79 Hudson Street downtown. Something must have been wrong with Lucky’s Famous Burgers if they couldn’t survive in the drunkest section of Hoboken!
We wish WindMill luck!

Is Windmill in Jeopardy in Hoboken?
Oh boy, it seems as if the building that Windmill Hotdogs and Burgers was moving into is now for rent again! Although the Windmill website still has a Hoboken location coming soon – I only wonder if they found a better spot. I emailed them once again to see what the deal is.
Less burger choices in Hoboken would rank up there with Mayoral Corruption!
Discussions with WindMill Hot Dogs in Hoboken
Windmill emailed me back, saying:
“It is actually a bit off the corner in the building that was a dentist’s office. Construction has started up again and we hope to be opened late summer. Thanks for inquiry!”
Windmill Hot Dogs & Burgers!
More South Jersey in Hoboken
According to the Windmill Hot Dogs website, expect Hoboken to have yet another place to entertain your non-vegetarian cravings!
As you can see – they ambiguously list the location as “Corner of Fifth and Washington…”
Which leads me to think…
Is the 7-Eleven not happening?
Back in April – I reported that the old Boston Chicken Market was to become a 7-Eleven. Keep in mind that I overheard this over the police radio (as they had set off a burglar alarm) – and it seemed legitimate. However, it also makes me wonder if the old Soup Man location might also be the future location of Windmill (while not technically on the “corner” – and also rumored to become another “Italian Deli”)…
I emailed WindMill last week – and haven’t received a response yet.
Was the 7-Eleven deal never finalized? Perhaps it fell through?
Either way – Hoboken is becoming a “Ham-bur-ken!”
WindMill is Socially Networked…
One other thing – WindMill stays connected with their customers:
Curiously – an update from MARCH 2nd, 2009 – indicated that “Work had begun” on the Hoboken location… before Boston Market AND Soup Man closed… makes you think.
So much for my healthy eating…
