Customer Service 100% Food 100% Atmosphere 100% Value 100% There truly is nothing bad to say about this small town establishment. They are also vested heavily in their community. Me & my wife loved the food, atmosphere and service so much that we came back a few hours later to enjoy it again. I will recommend this place to anyone... More

We returned here after first visiting in June last year. Love the nostalgic feel of this place, loads of memorabilia and Americana on the walls, especially loved the Elvis corner! Great music playing and staff super efficient and friendly. Had Norm's Big Dog- foot long hot dog covered in chili, cheese, onion rings and coleslaw for £2.80!! I'm no hot... More

Went here after someone told us about this place - locals must surely not have many places to go for great food if this is considered "Great". Ordered foot long, they apparently chose to microwave the dog, bun and everything else to try to melt the cheese, and it was all mushy, not tasty at all. I have had a... More

Have been eating here since the early 80's since the original owner. Always great and the last owner really went overboard with bigger menu choices and still great dogs. Always busy as the food is great. Atmosphere is friendly too. Recently sold so I hope the new owners do it the justice history has made it.

Coney Island is always busy. The footlongs are always good. Service wait time is good for as busy as they are. The owner is very attentive to customer comments. Decor is always being added with things of the past.

then come on over to Coney Island Drive Inn in Brooksville. The buns are so soft and be sure to add some coney sauce to it. The french fries are made fresh and are like potato sticks. The people are friendly, the mugs are frosted, and the beer/lemonade are cold. This place will NOT disappoint you. Bring cash because they... More

I love their coleslaw dog, chili/cheese French fries, and their vanilla milkshakes. Consistently delicious!

Looking for something different and quick after a long morning. We decided to grab a quick lunch here and it was crowded as some say here. Some kind of party being held so I'm sure that explained it. Service was good and the food was good, not great.
