Slightly expensive admittedly, but so what? I have always wanted to eat a hot dog here and now I have. I would go back, great Coney Island beer. Advice, just have the ordinary fries not the cheesy ones, its not actual melted cheese its more of a cheesy/salty sauce. Anyway, as mentioned a little pricey $18 for a hot dog.... More

Nathan's iconic hot doggery at Coney Island has been around for 100 years now, so it's not surprising that the food is good (at least as far as hot dogs are concerned!), reasonably priced, facilities are adequate and the staff ok (although unexceptional). Worth a visit, if you're in the area.

We spent a hot August day on Coney Island and enjoyed having our Nathan's Famous hot dogs for lunch, and boy they were good. Although we had to wait for awhile in line with the hot air on us, it was worth it! We ordered and picked up our "dogs" and took them outside to the picnic area and enjoyed... More

We bought two chili-cheese dogs and beer-battered onion rings. The dogs were underwhelming and overpriced. The onion rings, on the other hand, were delicious, but we did not go there for that. The service was fast and there is a large outdoor area to dine but overall not what I expected. After eating overpriced average New York food cart hot... More

I bought a corn dog for $5 and it was cold and it was the size of 1/2 a hot dog. Not a good value for your money

What can I say but its the home of the most famous hotdog and the fries are great too. Nathan's is a must stop when you go to Brooklyn and Coney Island.

Most engineered fast food I have ever tried, dirty, long lines, crappy service. Avoid, if you can - there is a lot of good food in the neighborhood.

The Nathan's now in Coney Island is completely different then years ago. The Hot Dogs now are very expensive and not tasty at all. Years ago the hot dogs were very crunchy and delicious. I think that they changed the recipe. It is not worth making the trip there. There are much better hot dogs elsewhere
