We didn't know what we were missing until we moved away. There is nothing that compares anywhere and believe me we have tried many. And the nostalgia is completely real. The owners have had the sense to preserve a bit of history. Definitely not an experience to miss when you visit Ft Wayne.

Got there around noon on a Sunday and the place was packed. Families with kids and college types in an otherwise empty Ft. Wayne downtown. How I love these Coney Dogs. They're the surviving gold standard. Soft bun, the slight snap of the dogs casing, warm and slightly greasy coney sauce and mustard and onion. Add a bottle Coke and... More

We rarely travel to the downtown area, but when we do it often includes a visit here for a few coney dogs. Our most recent visit was for the street party in honor of the 100th anniversary of this great establishment. We visited later in the evening after most of the rain, and the enthusiastic patrons such as myself were... More

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'.
