Nice Doggies

The Nathan’s hot-dog-eating contest is only a few weeks away—time to start training.

  1. 1. Nathan’s Famous

    1310 Surf Ave., at Stillwell Ave., Coney Island, Brooklyn, 718-946-2202

    Illustrious site of the annual July 4 scarfathon—the franks here are way better than the ones at the ubiquitous Nathan’s satellites.

  2. 2. Gray’s Papaya

    402 Sixth Ave., at 8th St.; 212-260-3532

    Slim and snappy, the best of the papaya posse.

  3. 3. Katz’s

    205 E. Houston St., at Ludlow St., 212-254-2246

    Classic deli dog, classic deli setting.

  4. 4. Schnäck

    122 Union St., nr. Columbia St., Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn 718-855-2879

    Numerous types of wieners, some from the legendary Bronx sausage-maker Stahl-Meyer.

  5. 5. Shake Shack

    In Madison Square Park; 212-889-6600

    Home of the geographically incorrect Chicago-style dog, and proud of it.
