Since 1916, Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs has been serving up some of the best quality hot dogs in the world. Nathan’s Famous is home of the Hot Dog Eating Contest Champions and Runner Ups, a scene of Coney Island, New York.
The original Nathan’s hot dog stand still exists, as of 2016, on its original 1916 site. Having been open for business every day, 365 days a year.
The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest has been held at the original location on Coney Island since the early 1970s. Contestants try to consume as many hot dogs as possible in 10 minutes. Joey “Jaws” Chestnut set the world record in 2013 when he polished off 69 dogs in 10 minutes.
