Delicous Coneys!

Arrived at 2p on a Sunday and there was a line out the door! It was only a short rush though. They had a couple seats open at the counter so we took that - most people were waiting for take-out or a table for a group. So we were right next to the production area and that was fascinating... read more

As always wonderful fast service! This is a staple in the downtown area. You must try. The last time I was there was a Friday night and of course the line was out the door as it usually is on such a night. They were still super fast and super fabulous and the staff always has a smile and is... More

This place is a part of Fort Wayne history. You must go and take the grandchildren. No visit is complete without sitting at the counter, watching them prepare rows of coney dogs on their arms and carry them to the customers. And you definitely need to order a little Coke in the bottle. A fun place to visit and a... More

Coney Island has been there for???? 70 years..?? the dogs are excellent. Buy a dozen and spread the cheer. Often crowded, simple and delicious. The downtown folks have a real edge to get these often.....

Coney Island is a Fort Wayne icon having been in business since the 1920s. That is the main draw to the place. It is timeless and unique. Great place to take children as menu is simple, the prices reasonable, the atmosphere relaxed, and the staff friendly.

The day before Valentines Day my guy takes me to Coney Island. I have lived in Fort Wayne all my life and have never graced this establishment. He is going on and on about the Coney dogs.... I finally speak up.... I hate hot dogs. He assures me the cheeseburgers are just as awesome. I am thinking lame excuse for... More

Coney Island serves the greatest Coney Dogs on Earth! If you ever visit Fort Wayne, or live here, you cannot miss a chance to miss it! The staff are friendly and if you're a local, you know the "secret entrance"! This isn't a fancy restaurant, just a great down to Earth place to eat and bring the family. They've been... More
