Visiting America we wanted to experience the sights, sounds, smells and food. An American hotdog was a must do and on our visit to Coney Island included lunch at Nathan's. We got our food and found some seats under an umbrella next nearby with no hassle at all. I had a chilli cheese dog and it was great.

I've always heard of Nathans with their well known hot dog eating contest. The lines were long and slow. I stayed in line for about 40 minutes for cheese fries and a lemonade. I don't eat meat or fish, so that was my only option. The fries were pretty good, topped with the cheese. There are a few tables off... More

Always love Nathan's. Not because the food is particularly amazing (tho always satisfying) but rather because it is iconic. Love live Coney Island!

Have been here many times and for some reason the hot dogs did not have that crunch to them like usual. The fries were ok but it seemed like both were not cooked enough and things were made quick to handle the large crowds. Outside area was clean and well kept which is a plus. Hopefully next time will be... More

We stopped to have something small to eat before we attended a concert in Brooklyn. There were four of us and we all ordered different Nathan's hot dogs. Regardless of the type of hot dogs we ordered, all the hot dogs still tasted excellent. We had plain hot dogs, chili hot dogs, and cheese hot dogs. We also ordered the... More

This was my first time back to Coney Island in about 40 years. It was amazing to be back again. We couldn't wait to take the kids to Nathans. It was just like I remembered. The fries were amazing. The kids loved the food as well. Hot dogs and fries. Can't beat it. I have bought the Frozen Nathans fries... More

I thought I was just gunna get an average hot dog with some cheese on top, but this was of a much higher quality than any other dog I've had before - more meaty and delicious! And this is coming from someone who doesn't really like meat! Also like how the calories are listed :) only criticism is the service... More

My family and I always stop here at least once a year! It's fast food but there's no place better for a hot dog and cheese fries!

This is home of the Nathan's Famous HotDog and HotDog eating contest. They do have great hotdogs (even if you aren't normally a hotdog fan) so you should try one. The toppings are on the side. The fries are really good too!
