NATHAN'S HOT DOGS - CONEY ISLAND, NEW YORK

NATHAN'S HOT DOGS
CONEY ISLAND, NY 

It has always been a dream to visit the original Nathan's Hot Dog Stand in Coney Island.  This is the home of the Nathan Hot Dog and the World Hot Dog Eating Competition.  I cannot believe that Joey Chestnut at 68 of these dogs in one sitting.  I had two and was stuffed for the day.  One regular Dog with just mustard and one Regular Dog with grilled onions and relish.  The Dogs are about $2.75 each and they are delicious.  The Nathan Dog has a snap when you bit it.  Full of flavor too. Just a great hot dog.  It was worth the 45 minute ride on the subway to Coney Island.  There were only a handful of people in the restaurant.  Mostly firefighters, policeman and EMS.  Not too many people make their way to Coney Island in the winter.  It is a summer destination.  We checked out the boardwalk and rides.  Very old and a little run down.  The beach was surprisingly nice.
