What a cool spot. I can honestly say that it wasn't what I expected. I thought that it would just be a little hot dog joint. I had the chilli dog, clam strips and fries. I really liked the dog and clams however the fries weren't the best. I'd love to come back in the summer. My only negative would... More

Come on. There's not much to say but it's hot dog central. They're the best. Salty, delicious, legendary, old school atmosphere. Yes, they serve other dishes, burgers, fries, etc. I'm sure they're fine but you go to Nathan's for the best hot dogs in town/the world. Every time I go to Coney Island, I usually get two.

Whenever I pass through the Coney Island area, everything is changing except Nathan's. Nostalgia of the past and the annual hot dog contest are good reasons to visit. The franks and fries are always hot and tasty. Prices are above average as expected.

Great hotdog and fries with cold beer or soda. Fun to watch other people as you sit outside and watch the whole scene.

Great hot dogs but not worth the trip from Manhattan! Good to see the original place tho! There are plenty of places in Manhattan to get these instead!

Are the hotdogs worth a trip to Coney? Not really. But the whole experience is a blast. I would only recommend it to tourists during late spring thru summer when the area is hopping. Walk the boardwalk, stop for drinks at one of the boardwalk bars, ride some rides, eat something from Nathan's. It's a good time for the whole... More

It has to be the grill. There is no other explanation for a hot dog that tastes this good!! Years of grilling hot dogs on this grill has made any hot dog grilled on it the tastiest and juiciest hot dod you will ever eat! My sister in law and I stopped here on a whim because we went to... More

Went to the hot dog joint on Coney Island. THE Nathans. Not the things you buy in the store. THE Nathans. It was legit. Plus, I was there for the restaurant's 100TH ANNIVERSARY! How awesome is that? Definitely go, don't even think about the price, just go, for the nostalgic memory you'll make.

My dad always took me with him starting in 1953. What a great hot dog that was a nickel back then. Well for over 60years its still the best dog around & the fries are great ,don't forget the spicy deli mustard. They also always have frogs legs that we always ate together. It was our time together great memories... More
