Nathan's Famous

1310 Surf Ave Brooklyn, NY 11224 | Coney Island | 718-946-2202

Location Description:

The thin, crisp-skinned beef franks are legendary at this Coney Island stalwart--which may, hopefully, still be standing after everything else that's interesting in the vicinity has been pulled down and turned into condos and resort facilities. Second only to the franks in deliciousness are the curious, ripply fries. Then there are other ancient C.I. standards, including raw clams, and clam chowder. Delightful! Open 24 hours, 365 days.
