Yummy dogs

I am not a fan of hotdogs, but I have to say these hotdogs were very yummy to my tummy. All beef hotdogs. You can taste the difference. They also had a seafood section on the menu. A lovely place to eat. Right across the subway station.

This location is as important as the food they serve at this Oringinal Nathans Hot Dog.The original house of dogs that the founder started, all took place at this location.The taste here combined with the smell of the salt air from the ocean make this a unique stop.

Ordering was a nightmare, the servers didn't seem to know what was going on - my server disappeared out the back in the middle of preparing my food! The hotdog was cold and nothing special, the fries were disgusting but the cheese sauce was pretty good and the lemonade was ok. I never leave food, until today! My husband's fries... More

Best fries too! Or fried shrimp. It's iconic. Now there are some tables to the side where you can sit & eat. You may have to share (the tables not the food, silly) but you meet interesting people that way. It's a little pricey...& super fattening but you will be so happy. At least your wallet will get lighter. Go.... More

It's what you'd expect from a fast food spot. Several lines with an assortment of different fast food (other than just hot dogs). The hot dogs were pretty good and the beer a good size as well. It was tough to find a spot to sit and eat, but we managed. Recommended if you're a hot dog fan, otherwise you... More

I have visited many times and NEVER fails to disappoint. A trip to here if visiting Coney Island is mandatory. Of course I got an original hot dog, it was fantastic as always. This time I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion on the menu of Coney Island Lager. The usual panhandlers were about, but a polite "no thank you"... More

You must go to Nathan's, its a bit of a hike but its worth every penny. Get the Bacon Cheese DOgs and Cheese Fries. The ultimate drunk food. The Q train goes right to Coney Island and Nathan's is right there. Also they are open late

Any trip to NY should include a Nathans Hot Dog and a Beer at Nathans in Brooklyn. This locations also hosts a hot dog eating contest once a year. There is a subway station directly across the street.

Busy Sunday in Coney Island. Nathan's was packed. The line went fairly fast. With my sons kids meal he got a full sized coloring book. I thought that was cool. Hot dogs and fries were great. When you go to NY you have to go. The clock outside was counting down until the next hot dog eating contest. Seating we... More
