Saturday there was some serious hot dogging at Coney Island — the quarter-finals for the world-renowned Nathan’s hot dog eating contest.

The big showdown takes place on July 4th at Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs at Coney Island.

Joey “Jaws” Chestnut is the man to beat.  He remains a popular choice to win it all again this year, after he mustered what it takes to beat back all competitors last year.
