As a fat kid it's always been my goal to eat a chili dog at the original Nathan's on Coney Island. While visiting NYC my wife and I took the subway to Coney Island and went to the original. I had a couple of chili dogs which were really good. However the chili cheese fries surprisingly stole the show! They... More

The hot dogs and fries are out of this world as are the prices. But if you are in the area you have to stop and get one. I don't know how a hot dog can taste this good. The building is cool to check out as well kind of a landmark in Brooklyn.

We decided to go in here as it said it was a famous hotdog place. Except neither of us tried a hotdog! My husband thought the burger was good. As a veggie, there was hardly anything at all on the menu, so I opted for cheesy chips. The chips were tasty, the cheese was a strange liquid thing that was... More

I make sure I eat at Nathan's all the time. The hotdogs are real good I even try to make them at home. I Love the Hamburgers taste like your at a BBQ with all the fixins.

everyone needs to stop & have a dog at Nathan's. I personally had the clam chowder, which was wonderful! So nostalgic, you feel John travolta & Olivia newton john are gonna walk in singing & dancing!

Nathans is a staple of Coney Island. They NEVER disappoint. I always have the hot dog and french fries. Best hot dog ever. The french fries are also delicious. Fatter than most and crinkle cut. This fry is cooked to perfection. Be prepared for throngs of people in warmer weather. I loved to go in the dead of winter and... More

No trip to Coney Island would be complete without a meal at legendary Nathan's. The grilled all beef hot dogs snap when you bite into them. The thick crinkled fries are crisp outside and soft inside. YUM! You can also choose burgers, fried shrimp and more. On sunny weekends, the lines are long but worth the wait. The main location... More
