          But must be eaten at Coney Island, not at any of their chains

                Yup...wish I were there right now!!!

                (Well, now right now - as it is POURING in NYC right now...)

                Does Nathans CI still do a chow mein sandwich?
                I'd have fries , a hot dog, and a chow mein sandwich.....

                  Chow mein and frogs legs are still on the menu.
                  I usually get a dog, french fries and Hires root beer. Priceless!

                    Yup, I just Googled...
                    The lobster roll is still on the menu as well...I'd get one of those too!
                    Oh, and yeah, a root beer would fit nicely!!
                    I want a chow mein sandwich now, something awful. *sigh*

                    Why do I torture myself??

                      Hires Root Beer - between that and Manhattan faves as a kid

                1. Belgian-style fried in duck fat.

                    I'll take any style, as long as it's been done right in duck fat...

                  2. Best fries I ever had was on the island of Madeira off the coast of Portugal. They were the big kind (steak?). Had 'em with marinated skewered beef cooked over a fire. Heaven.

                    1. Sad to say, but McD has the best mass market fries out there.
