Takeru Kobayashi Ranked Feltman's Hot Dogs in Top 3 in Popeye Magazine

Have you ever heard of Takeru Kobayashi? If the name doesn’t sound familiar, you may have seen his videos on YouTube. Kobayashi is a competitive eater best known for his incredible skill in eating various foods, a talent that has earned him Guinness Records for his ability to eat food like pizza, tacos, hamburgers, ice cream, and of course, hot dogs. As a matter of fact, Kobayashi’s first record was accomplished back in 2001 when he managed to eat a whopping fifty hot dogs in just twelve minutes during a hot dog eating contest held right here in Coney Island.

It’s safe to say that if there’s someone who knows what a great hot dog tastes like, it’s definitely Takeru Kobayashi. And wouldn’t you know it, it turns out he’s actually one of the biggest fans of Feltman’s hot dogs, ranking it among his top three favorites according to this Popeye Magazine. When he happens to be in town, Kobayashi has been occasionally spotted enjoying a hot dog at Feltman’s Kitchen at St. Marks Place in the East Village. Kobayashi has stated in the past that a Feltman’s hot dog is “as good as eating steak!” Thanks for the awesome compliment, Kobayashi!

This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the original hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor. For more information, please visit one of the locations in Brooklyn or Feltman’s Kitchen on St. Marks Place in the East Village to try some of the best hot dogs in the country.
