8. World’s Longest Line of Hot Dogs: 1,916
In 2016, Nathan’s Famous celebrated its 100th anniversary by building a continuous line of hot dogs at Grand Central Terminal: 1,916 of them to be exact (in honor of the year the company was founded). “There are certain brands, certain things that say really New York, the Empire State Building is one, the Brooklyn Bridge. Nathan’s hot dogs stands beside them,” said George Shea, Chairman of Major League Eating and host Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest.
The previous record was set in Tokyo in 2014, which gave rise to an 846-foot line. Nathan’s, however, beat that record by over 100 feet, constructing a 958-feet continuous flow of bun-to-bun hot dogs.
