Nathan's Fun Facts


  • The original Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand opened in 1916.

      All of those hot dogs placed end to end would wrap around the world!

      contestants. The female elephants ate 492 buns in 6 minutes, compared to 180 buns by the male contestants.


  • In 1933, to celebrate the end of prohibition, Nathan’s Famous served free beer. Cheers!

  • To open his hot dog stand, Nathan borrowed $300 from his friends Jimmy Durante and Eddie Cantor. The hot dogs

      were sold for only 5 cents and made using his wife Ida’s grandmother’s secret spice recipe. That recipe is still used

      today.
