Feltman’s hot dogs have been praised by people all over the world, and in case you missed it, none other than Thrillist joined in last year. Thrillist is a website that discusses food, drink, and travel. They discussed our all-natural hot dog and the history of the Feltman’s brand.
Feltman’s hot dog was first invented by Charles Feltman on Coney Island. Mr. Feltman created the hot dog when he put sausages on buns so that tourists could eat without plates. Business was booming. Mr. Feltman owned an empire called Feltman’s Ocean Pavilion that had restaurants, a movie theater, a rollercoaster, and a carousel, among other things.
Two brothers named Joe and Michael Quinn revived Feltman’s, and it still stands in Coney Island. The brothers have recreated the original Feltman’s recipe, so the hot dog sold today is still the same one from the 19th century.
The new Feltman’s stands at the original location on Coney Island. Go check out our all-natural beef hot dogs! Oh yeah, and don’t forget to check out the Feltman's Original Coney Island Hot Dog Returns to the Boardwalk article, too!
This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the original 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.

The Original Way
There’s no wrong way to eat a Feltman’s hot dog. But the truly original way is on a potato bun with a healthy serving of Charles Feltman’s original mustard, made with apple cider vinegar.
