The Original Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs Brooklyn Reviews
Mouth watering good hot dogs! Jan 22, 2008
Nathan's hot dogs are very well known throughout the world by the hot dog eating championship that captivates the world every year by seeing people shove 50 hot dogs down their throat for the ultimate championship! Nathan's has been around since 1916 and in 1999 New York City Mayor Rudy Guliani declares Nathan's the world's best hot dogs in a special gathering in the Blue Room in City Hall.
But this restaurant is a dive on the side of the street with a lot of classic history with it. The hot dogs come up very quickly and you can get them with a lot of toppings; including saurkraut, hot cheese, chili, mustard, and ketsup. The hot dogs are nice and plump and flavorful and the bun doesn't dwarf their size. Each bite is loveliness to our mouth!
By the way... the hotdogs in the grocery store by Nathan's don't do the ones at Coney island justice... you have to try the originals atleast once!

Nathan's Famous is a chain of U.S.-based fast food restaurants specializing in hot dogs. The original Nathan's stands at the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in the Coney Island neighborhood of the New York City borough of Brooklyn.
Nathan's began as a nickel hot dog stand in Coney Island in 1916 and bears the name of founder Nathan Handwerker. A second branch on Long Beach Road in Oceanside, New York, opened in 1955, and another debuted in Yonkers in 1965. All were sold by the Handwerker family in 1987, at which point Nathan's was franchised and a great number of establishments were opened around New York City and beyond. The company went public in 1993, and Bill Handwerker, the founder's grandson, left the company three years later.
