    Lines are long, but it gives you enough time to look at the menu and decide. Obviously you'll need to try the Nathan's hot dog if you haven't. Their cheese burgers and fries aren't bad either.

    The main nathan's -the one in coney island- has slight bigger and much better franks than same brand shops around nyc.

    No trip to Coney Island is complete without a trip to Nathan's. Love grabbing a hotdog with peppers and onions.

    Landmark, delicious NY hot dogs. Sauerkraut and mustard. Nothing else needed.

    The century-old recipe still works: the hot dogs have good, firm texture and a snap when you bite. The light smoky, spicy flavor is reminiscent of the ball park on a summer evening. Read more

    Stick to the classics

    Service is super slow and the hot dogs taste like any old hot dog but history right?

    Lobster soup in winter, hot dog plain in summer or any time

    Hot dogs are damn near 5 dollars now lmao

    Stephen Gucciardo · August 23
  • Tara D.

    the "clams" are delicious (but don't be fooled- they're just little fried strips)

    Tara DeVincenzo · August 20
  • Jeff F.

    Be aware: the large beers are super large (64 oz).

    Expensive but high in quality

    Oysters and seafood were surprisingly fresh, delicious, and affordable!

    Frog legs. Just do it.

    Classic spot. A must do in Coney Island: enjoy a timeless hotdog from Nathan's

    Tom Meng · August 7
  • Trevor L.

    Typical tourist trap with long, but managable, lines. The beef franks will leave you wanting more so be sure to pile up.

    It was a good...a really good hot dog. Now the fries were not good. I do consider myself a French-fry sommelier and I with confidence can say, sub par. The service was good and very polite.

    Skip the chili dog and stay with the original dog. It's best the classic way

    Natalie M · August 1
  • Jessica B.

    Hot dogs from the original are a must. I ordered a lobster roll (so cheap at 6.99) and it was tasty but the portion of lobster was pretty small. Guess you get what you pay for!

    Jessica Bishop · July 30
  • JP P.

    Classic American hot dogs and fries. Come every year for the 4th of July Hot Dog Eating contest!

    JP Park · July 28
  • Alex F.

    Can't go wrong with a hot dog and fries from here. Head to the beach after, but wait 30 minutes before going in the water!

    Alex Fish · July 24
  • Michele P.

    The hot dogs weren't anything special for the hype

    Michele Piccaro · July 23
  • Bryce C.

    Great food but the service is slow and the lines are always long.

  • John Τ.

    Best hot dogs in town and around the world! If you want to see a historical site and have a brooklyn original meal you need to stop here.

  • Andres R.

    Chili dogs and beer, duh!

    A great place to basecamp during the Mermaid Parade. Delicious food. Very large draft beers (reasonably priced too). Has a large seating area outside.

    Grade A corndogs. Only better one I have had in NYC is Papaya Dog.

    Gabriel Hayes · June 28
  • Gabriel H.

    The standard for a hot dog. I personally enjoy the cheese dog, but I can't blame you if go the chili cheese dog route.

    Gabriel Hayes · June 28
  • Gabriel H.

    The Mecca of hot dogs. A must do when visiting Coney Island.

    Gabriel Hayes · June 28

    Obviously get a hot dog!

    Good for the bathroom!

    A New York landmark but not the best hotdogs in New York go to crif dogs for that.

  • Nate F.

    crispy corn dog on a stick

    Nate Folkert · June 6
  • Mary M.

    the lines are crazy long on hot days. I found the corn dog to be WAY too greasy last time. the Nathan's corn dogs at other locations are not that way.

    Mary Motta · May 28
  • Joe C.

    It's the original. Puts the Nathan's hot dogs they sell in the store to shame...

    Joe Cheskin · May 24
  • Ryan C.

    You cant go wrong at Nathan's. Best corndog on the planet. It's been around for almost a century for good reason. Everything is delicious.

    Ryan C · May 20

    The hot dogs, shrimps, frog legs, fries...

    LA TONYA WADE · May 19
  • Tyler L.

    A tasty, but a bit overpriced dog. You've got to try it at least once for the experience but you're basically getting what you'd get in the grocery store.

    Tyler Lund · May 17
  • George J.

    Don't hold back. Get one of everything.

    George Joseph · May 9
  • Tom J.

    The food is pretty average but you're probably going more for the name than the taste
