Best in the Country!

This and Real Chili in Milwaukee are the best coney islands in the nation. They have chili soup which is outstanding. Their chili dogs are fantastic! A traditional coney island!

Every city has that great little local place and this is it for Fort Wayne! The chili dog is a must, they still give you your Coke in a bottle. Going into this place is like stepping back in time. Truly not much has changed since 1960.

Tjhis is a must for anyone who comes to Fort Wayne. The locals make a point to go here with their families to pass on a tradition sent down from their parents. Doesn't look like much, but the food is great.

We visited here while in Ft Wayne because how could we not visit a place that has been in business for over 100 years?! It was a fun little place with plenty of character. The dogs were just so-so. But it was worth a visit.

Got to be the best hotdogs in Fort Wayne! Have tried many of the other shops in Fort Wayne, but none have delivered the same delicious taste at Coney Island. Our family actually orders a bowl of chili to add to the hot dogs – – must be a personal preference, as I do not see a lot of people... More

Grew up going to this place. It's been around 100 yrs and hasn't really changed much. If you are visiting Fort Wayne or just never been there in general it is definitely a must see!

Stopped in for a couple coney's. The place looks as if it is the same since it opened, but don't let that deter you. The coney's were excellent, the staff was very nice and it's a cheap eat. Go and support these types of places before they are all taken over by the cardboard food establishments that are creeping into... More
