In an age where dynasties are few and far between, Joey Chestnut has dominated his sport like few others.

Best of all, he let’s the success go straight to his belly.

“Winning tastes pretty good. I feel great,” said Chestnut, after winning his fifth straight Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island on Monday. “It was hot out here but that didn’t really affect me.”

Chestnut slammed back 62 dogs in 10 minutes to capture the $10,000 prize. And he’s got more bad news for the competition — he’s not even thinking retirement.

“Listen, I’m getting paid to eat. It’s not too bad of a life.”

Chestnut, who came within a half dozen of his world-record of 68 set in 2009, topped Patrick “Deep Dish” Bertoletti, 53, and Tim Janus, who finished with 45.
