If your traveling to Florida and find yourself hungry, Cony Island is a great place to stop and stretch your legs. It's about a 10 mile detour from 1-75 that is well worth it. The drive in has a great atmosphere and is definitely one of a kind. Facilities are very clean and the staff was a delight. I would... More

This is a real must see. Great hot dogs, fantastic deep fried spare ribs, deep fried specialties and shakes. Inside and outside dining. Offers old time displays, especially a license plate collection. This is a restaurant take on the old time hot dog stand and yet it is a restaurant. It is so friendly, they seem to remember you from... More

We recently relocated to Florida from Texas and had seen a Coney Island billboard on I-75 during our move. We decided to become familiar with our surroundings and took a drive to check out the area. There it was, Coney Island Drive In. Being a hot dog fanatic we walked in and advised the cashier it was our first visit.... More

Cool place for quick steamed hotdog with many variations. They also have other menu choices, but the regular or foot long dog seems to be the main event. Families, kids and bikers alike were enjoying the day and the dogs.

This place is a classic. Had fallen on tough times but was resurrected a few years back. Another new owner came on board last year. Even better. Don't expect fine dining. It is counter order and funky bench tables. Hot Dogs are the special. You can have them about 50 different ways. Good hamburgers, wings and fries. Milkshakes pretty good,... More

I Had driven by before & decided to stop today. Taste was just OK! A bit pricey. We did not get our onion rings until done with our dogs. Milkshake nothing special. Music too loud for our tastes.

Nice local place with good sandwiches and hot dogs food at reasonable prices. Nice decor, outdoor seating, plenty of parking. A good place to pit stop on a motorcycle ride.

Great place for hot dogs and burgers. Every meal I have had at Coney Island was good with very friendly ownership.

Been passing this place for a while but decided to try it because it's busy all the time. Now we are regulars. Who doesn't love hotdogs?! Try the other menu items too. All freshly made. Atmosphere is pretty eclectic too.
