Somethings Should Never Change

Fun place but not a "real" restaurant. More of a novelty. If you 'real in from out of town and looking for a nice place to share a meal and talk, this is NOT the place.

Classic. Coney Island is an American Classic. 101 years old makes it the oldest coney stand in america! Yes, older than Nathan's Hot Dogs. Walking in the back door, through the kitchen, makes every customer feel like a "regular" The conies are amazing - always paired with a classic Coke in a bottle! Just an all-around great Fort Wayne experience.... More

My Dad remembers that the coney dogs were three for a quarter when he was a kid, and they were about half the size they are now. And back in the 1940's my parents used to go on date nights here. The building's a long, narrow room. You can sit at the little chairs and tables, or at the long... More

Haven't lived in Ft Wayne for 40 yrs, but when I return, I find this gem is exactly the same. Well, the price creeps up-I think they were 40 cents in the mid 70s. A deal today at $1.50.

Fantastic. Classic hot dog location rich with history and local legend. From kids to adults and singles to groups this is a must visit.

Coneys are always fabulous. The sauce is great, as are the steamed buns! We also end up with chilli and a burger or two as well. Always a great meal!

Fort Wayne's Famous Coney Island has not changed much over the years. Serving hot dogs with their own sauce, chili, and soft drinks like they have from their beginning. Seating at the counter or tables, and watch the dogs being prepped. Servers always bring a smile with them. They do have chips and burgers, but why not eat the dogs... More

We went to Coney Island after a Komet game on a Saturday night. So not impressed with the food. We ordered cheese coneys, coneys and a cheeseburger. You have to search for the cheese on the "cheese" coney. The mustard is super watery. We asked for another cheeseburger, which was very tasty, and they said they had just shut down... More
