Can't miss this place in you find yourself in Worcester! Finally had a chance to stop by and grab some Coneys to go and was so glad I did. It's the real deal...the best in the area! And, no question about it, I'd return if in need of a Coney Dog fix! Counter staff were friendly and prompt and prices... More

A Worcester "staple" and awesome place to get a hot dog (or two) for cheap money and almost immediately. Great place to get a quick lunch! My Dad used to go there every week. The carvings in the furniture must have his name there somewhere. There are millions of names/signatures from people from all over the world. That's what makes... More

A consistent favorite for so many reasons. The interior is relatively unchanged from decades of service to happy patrons. The booths and carved wood panelling, the linoleum floor and the minimalist menu..all part of the charm. And of course the hotdogs, steamed rolls, plain chips and chocolate milk from a carton make for a perfect dining experience, whether its after... More

The hotdogs maybe a little expensive but they're worth every bite in the end The sauce they put on their hotdogs is quite delicious and makes your mouth water with every bite

This place brings you back...You can see the names of the past carved in the seats and the hot dogs are delicious... The staff has never been overly friendly and for some reasons the flies are everywhere. The hot dogs are not as big as other places and are priced average to a little high. The parking is in the...

George's is part of a dieing breed. The single specialty restaurant that does one thing, (well a couple of things), right and sticks to the original. The Friday only Fish & Chips places are also in that category. His chili sauce is basic and excellent. The crispness of grilling the dogs is wonderful. I don't know how he gets those... More

It has an amazing atmosphere, and the prices are great. They have probably the best hot dogs I have ever eaten. They have tons of different topping to choose from, I personally love the chili dog. It's very easy to get to, and is a family friendly environment.

in a recent 'taste test' with my wife (who comes from Natick)...this Worcester boy's Coney Island Hot Dogs beat "Casey's" of Natick, MA hands down. Both have steamed rolls, both crowded...but Casey boils the dog, while Coney Island grilles them....which is a much better flavor 3 dogs and a chocolate milk...or with a Millar Highlife....yummmmm atmosphere is vintage retro 1930's....not...

This is a very casual lunch stop with the main offerings of hog dogs and pickles! You can get a grilled cheese but why would you (unless you don't eat meat). The old booths and walls are covered with initials and messages from folks dating back decades. This is on the fringe of downtown Worcester so parking is not really... More
