People in Fort Wayne love Coney's. They make a hot dog with a special Coney sauce that is rather tasty. They sell dogs with a wide variety of other garnishes as well. The restaurant is clean and quaint (being right on Main Street Fort Wayne) and the prices are fantastic. But it is still a hot dog. The counter staff... More

I recently went to Coney Island with my wife and kids. Brings back old memories of when my parents used to take me when I was younger. I hope someday my children will take their children and keep this memory going.

People who have lived in Fort Wayne a long time come here, persons new to the city find this a unique place. Many a leagal or real estate deal has been done here over lunch. Always busy at peak hours. A must stop before or after lighting of Santa on the bank building. This is a down town favorite place

One of a kind place that is always a treat to go to. Great chili that is a great compliment to the hot dog. Can be pretty busy at certain times and there is not a lot of seating.

Coney Island has the best hot dogs and chili in town. Always such a treat to sit at the old table and chairs and look around at the nostalgia. People in suits and dresses and jeans and t shirts...doesn't matter. They all come for those wonderful dog's!!!!!

I've been going to Ft. Wayne's Coney Island for at least 70 years. At one time there was another hot dog place right next door. My mother and I tried both one day. Coney Island had the other beat hands down. It is a unique place and has been there for over 100 years now.

The best coney dog ever and such an iconic Fort Wayne eatery. Even if you take them to go, they stay hot for a while so they are just as delicious at home as there.

The environment is very comfortable and laid back. Staff is very friendly. The hot dogs buns are so soft and fresh that it makes you want another one!
