This is the original Nathans in Coney Island which opened in 1916. The food is great as always. It never gets old. This location is very expensive. We are talking near Yankee Stadium prices. Check your Sunday newspaper for discount coupons. You might get lucky...More

How much as if right now is a hot dog and fries? Or can you email me a menu with prices? I am bringing a Girl Scout troop and we have a budget we are working from. Thanks

I'm sure the prices change seasonally, I would call the Coney Island location.

Hi everyone, Can anyone tell me if Nathan's is open all year round? Heading to NY next month (February) and will spending a day in Brooklyn/Coney Island. Would love to go here! Not sure if seasonal opening hours or open all year round? Thanks
