Rumor has it that they deep fry the dogs before grilling. Whatever it is, they are super juicy and delicious! Can't go wrong with the toppers, especially grilled onions ;) The chili dog is good but wish was hotter, very mild. About $3-5 per gourmet topped dog. Less for less. Long lines that go fast and worth the wait. Buy more than one or regret. Best hot dogs you'll ever eat. No joke.

Delish dogs w. sauerkraut & grainy deli mustard. Next time I'll try it with onions too! Grew up on these dogs; had frozen lemonade which was really good too on a warm day!

I highly recommend a subway ride to Coney Island if you're visiting New York for a change of scene and pace. And while your there Nathan's is a must. Ok, it's not fine dining but if your going to have a hotdog you may as well have it at such an iconic venue. Actually the food is pretty good and if you're a Brit you won't have had hotdogs like these!

I'm not huge on hot dogs, but had to have one because they're so well known and have been around for a long time. They were better than other hot dogs out there. It was good. I loved the area it was at too. It was fun to go there.

I didn't have a hot dog, but did have a fish sandwich and a beer and it was great. It's not like it's "gourmet" or anything but really kitchy and fun (as you'd expect) and worth visiting.
