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,"

Our family loves this place!!! We have yet to find a better coney. You can watch the hot dogs grilling in the front window. They go the extra mile and steam their buns; this is a must for a good coney. The coneys are given a squirt of mustard, a generous helping of coney sauce and lots of onions. The... More

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!
