Nathan's Famous off the Boardwalk in Conny Island is one of the most famous "fast food" operations in the city. It was well know long before the "King" and the "Cornell" every set foot on NYC soil. It is perhaps well know for its frankfurters but it has much more to eat then just that. It may not be the... More

There no doubt that if you are heading to Coney Island That Nathan's Famous is worth the stop. This is the first location and has been there for 100 years or more. They offer more than just Hot Dogs they serve Seafood and Chicken and even Frogs Legs.

We were there pretty early and avoided the lines that appeared later in the day. It's refreshing (and I guess die to the fact they have been going so long) that the portion sizes are "normal" to us visitors. Keep it simple and stick with the classic hotdog.

The price is high, so look online for coupons before you go They have Great fries and other interesting items, like even frog legs, on our most recent visit. If someone... More

On a sunny afternoon it is great to have a dog and beer and sit and soak in the rays, which we did. They did have Coney Island beer which was great. The service was very slow and sullen, they all looked and acted miserable. The dogs were just ok, I have had much better. Maybe could of rated this... More

We try to get to Coney Island to enjoy the boardwalk but to eat at Nathan's. Longtime favorite of Brooklynites. The area has been improved since Katrina and the surrounding make the food taste that much better. Great hot dogs, very clean eating area and great restrooms (which is a plus).

Nathan's has 1 of the best hot dogs ever made.The place is a throwback from the good ole Coney Island days.I have eaten here at least 200 times and the hot dogs are the best.If you ever visit Coney a trip to Nathans is a must.

Disappointing would be an understatement.4.15 for a hot dog...4 hot dogs 2diet cokes and order small fries 29.00 .The restaurant was not allthat clean.We had to eat outside because there is no sitting inside.It is in a sketchy neighborhood.At least thre people approached us for money.There are no security guards to keep the peace.

Thank twostate
