    May he rest in peace. He put a lot of smiles on peoples faces during his life.
    Funny but, my favorite item at the original Nathan's was their lobster roll.
    Which by the way, bear's no resemblance to a Maine lobster roll.

    It's been 60 years since I was at the Original place on the Boardwalk but I still remember being there. Can't remember what I had for breakfast, but I remember being there!

    RIP
     
    I had my first Nathan's last night.  I was shocked that there were 8 hot dogs in the package and 8 buns in the bag.

    Very, very sad to hear this news.  A true legend in the business.
     
    Mar52: Hot dog packaging drives me crazy.  I bought the new Hebrew National Bun Length Franks this week and a bag of buns.  To my dismay, I wind up with 6 franks and 8 buns.  Normally, it's 7/8.  I can't win!
     
    Annpeeples: Would be interested in any feedback you may have on the Nathan's franks.
