“I love Nathans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We were very excited to visit the original Nathan's. Had a very tasty (and messy!) hot dog, topped fries and a cool drink. A must for any one visiting Coney Island. There are other food options than hot dogs, but we did not try them.

“A classic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

This is the Best place to get a great frank and fries. Add to the a cold tap beer and it's the perfect end to a good beach day. Coney Island had gone through some great revitalizations, the beach is clean and every subway line will get you there. Nathan's is the perfect way to end a great day. Also they have great frogs legs! You don't need to go to an expensive restaurant to have them, the ones there are great.

“The Original”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Home of the best hot dogs and fries Nathan's still has it! For the Coney Island experience have a hot dog with mustard and fries with no cheese! Nothing better on a hot summer day!

“On your trip to Coney Island, you must stop here.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Nathans has been around longer than I have. I can remember coming here as a kid each time we'd visit Coney Island. As an adult I've stopped here many times, they have the best hot dogs and fries in New York City and its really fun and cool to sit on the boardwalk and enjoy the view of the beach along with the never ending festivities that go on, on the boardwalk. The place itself is nothing much to look at, there are some picnic tables on the outside so that you can sit and eat. If you feel like eating something a little different but yummy, try the frog legs. This place is basically a take out hot dog restaurant that is in a very interesting and colorful neighborhood that is one of New York City's landmark places to visit. Don't expect great service or anything fancy, just know that when you get here and have had one of Nathan's famous hot dogs, you have officially become an honorary New Yorker.

“Nathan's Hot Dogs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

A nice ride on the subway to Coney Island. Was excited see what Coney Island was all about. Nathan's was clean and the weather was great to sit outside. The service was slow so I was glad that they weren't busy. It could have been a long wait. Overall the "dog" was delicious but the fries should have been cooked longer to make them yummier. Walked the boardwalk and enjoyed the sunny day with my son, Patrick and friends. If you have never been to Coney Island, Nathan's is worth the trip.
