Lonely Planet advised this was the birth of the hot dog and not to be missed. Loved Coney Island - the atmosphere, the beach, the funfair - the hot dog? Pretty average chilli dog with the chilli taken out. We were hungry so we went down reasonably well with a beer. If I ever go back to Coney Island - yes, I would probably buy another one. My only hot dog in the 3 week trip to the US.
