Hot Dog! The Food People @originalnathans Follows

Nathan’s hot dogs—they’re an American classic, just like their Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, yesterday celebrating its 101st year. At the corner of Surf and Stillwell on Coney Island, competitive eater Joey Chestnut made history, winning his tenth mustard belt by eating 72 hotdogs in 12 minutes.

With all the summer food and holiday hype, we decided to take a look at who Nathan’s follows in the culinary world. Aside from gems like Harold the hot dog, they’ve got a wide range of food experts on the menu. Here, some of our foodie favorites, from NYC to Cali, sea to shining sea.
