Like American-flag cakes and steaks shaped like Napoleon Bonaparte, the hot dog blends the iconic with the edible. Wage a classic battle against hunger with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of hot dogs, chili, and shakes at Phillip’s Original Coney Island.

Phillip’s Original Coney Island founder Phillip Manus and four generations of his descendants have been cranking out grin-starting hot dogs, chili, and other American standards from their well-stocked kitchen for 99 years. Chefs can set the grilled frank of the signature coney, or hot dog, on a sesame-sprinkled bun pillow laden with mustard, special sauce, and the soundless dreams of silent-movie comics ($1.89), or stir lean ground beef and plump, ripe tomatoes into a spicy cup of chili soup ($3.29). The buffalo chicken-finger sandwich locks three plump, hot-sauce-slathered tenders in a bread prison for their crimes of animal-based identity theft ($4.69). Alternatively, a slew of shakes and sweet drinks, such as the Mug-brand root-beer float ($3.59), transport taste buds back to simpler times on waves of ice cream and brain freeze.

Phillip's Original Coney Island

For a full century, members of the Manus family have manned the counter at Phillip's Original Coney Island, serving their signature Coney Island hot dogs topped with onions, special Coney sauce, and cheddar cheese. All the way down from Phillip Manus, who opened the eatery in 1912, to his great-grandson Nicholas Manus, who runs it today, Phillip’s has served an old-fashioned menu of hot dogs, burgers, battered-bottleneck fries, and hand-dipped milk shakes, pairing each serving with fresh-baked cornbread. Following the original 100-year-old recipe, cooks dip their ladles into simmering chili pots brimming with lean ground beef, vine-ripened tomatoes, a secret blend of spices, and Woodrow Wilson’s eyeglasses. Alternatively, they added a few modern twists to recipes, coating their buffalo chicken fingers with Frank's Red Hot Sauce and crowning barbecue burgers with Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and crunchy coleslaw.
