No parking around there was bad. Food lines were bad. Food is excellent. They could use a better cheese similar to Gold star or Skyline chili.

I visit Coney Island at least twice a year, and their hotdogs and Chili are the best I've had anywhere. Love the coke bottles with a straw. Fun to eat there, and always a fun time!!!

Original recipe for coney dogs is 2nd to none! Old atmosphere and small bottle cokes bring back memories! One of a kind place!

One of Ft. Wayne's greatest historical, tourist attractions. My Dad took me to Coney Island back in the 40's; I took my children when they were young...and it was a MUST stop when they were in college and even after they were married. Now whenever grandchildren come to town, it is at the top of their list of places to... More

When I married my husband he insisted that I would love Coney Island as much as he does. I'm not a hot dog fan, but have come to love Coney Island and its place in Fort Wayne history. I'll never love it as much as he does, but I do enjoy our trips there.

Stopped by for a late dinner (about 9:00 PM) and had a regular Coney Dog and regular Hamburger (with all of the things they would normally put on). Both were very good. The place does have a nostalgia about it. The staff is friendly and willing to explain the different toppings, if asked. The prices are very reasonable. I certainly... More

Love the coney dogs and chili. A must too is to drink a coke from one of the small glass bottles of 'yesterday year'.

Have been enjoying Fort Wayne Coney Island for SO many years! Definitely not fancy , but chances are you 'll bump into someone who 's been coming here forever. The dogs are what it 's all about. Be prepared for a short wait if you pop in around lunch hour. Located in downtown Fort Wayne. See if you can snag... More

When you walk in, you see old tables, counter service. And the best dogs and sauce ever. This place is always busy. The atmosphere is nostalgic. They take your a order by memory and are always friendly. They have great pies and soda in a bottle. Love to visit.

Why? Because it is inexpensive. It is exactly what it says it is, a coney dog shop. The wait staff is FAST and professional. The dogs are great. And once more, it is inexpensive. "Two dogs with everything, bag of chips and a small Coke please,"
