Time Out says

The famous frank joint's Surf-and-Stillwell flagship—opened in 1916—grills sizzling hot dogs daily and hosts its iconic, crowd-amassing eating contest every July 4. The original subway tiles and iconic signage are still intact, as are menu staples like crinkle-cut fries and thick-battered corn dogs, but there’s one shiny “new” addition: a curbside clam bar, a revival of the restaurant’s raw bar from the ’50s. East Coast oysters and littlenecks are shucked per order over a mountain of ice, served with chowder crackers, lemon wedges, sinus-clearing horseradish and cocktail sauce.
