Coney Island definitely lived up to its reputation. We had dogs and hamburgers, both were very good. The service was good, received food very quickly. Very reasonably priced.

if you want a hot dog then you came to the right place. This is the best hot dog place in Fort Wayne I think.

This place is part of my Heritage - my father worked there for over 15 years until his death in 1975. I started working there at age 13 and Russ Choka became my Father Figure. I've been gone for 30 years now but stop in often. My kids and Grandkids love the place! Best Coney Dogs and Chili hands down!

A century old and still going strong! We recently went there after a Fort Wayne TinCap game and had no trouble getting a seat. They are still serving the Coney's up as they did 100 years ago and I'm sure the taste is as good now as it was then. To me it's in the sauce that goes on the... More

New in town and wanted to try something different. Great food and prices. Only negative is it's not very fancy. People were nice.

You must visit this establishment. It is located in the heart of Fort Wayne, family-owned, and just downright reminiscent of a better era. The dogs and coney sauce are succulent and tasty-- I go easy on the onions, though, at this stage in my life! I also love their nice thin burger. The staff is always warm and efficient, the... More

When in Ft Wayne if you do nothing else you have to try the staple of life in Ft Wayne. Coney Island. So good, so messy, so Coca Cola. Just goodness. Thanks

After driving by this place several times on our way to our favorite Fort Wayne diner (Bourbon Street Hideaway), my wife and I decided to give it a try. We were seated immediately although the place was quite crowded. We ordered three regular conies and two cheese Coney dogs. The dogs were good, sauce was tasty and buns were steamed.... More

Located in downtown Fort Wayne this is my favorite hog dog place. Great atmosphere with classic food. Enter via front door or feel like a local and walk in via the back door through the kitchen.
