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

Hot Dogs...Yum. Great atmosphere. Quick service even when it is busy..and it gets busy. Plenty of seating.. in booths that are covered with name carvings. It actually gives it some character. Easy to get to in Worcester.

Love their chili sauce! Cool old fashion style. Inexpensive food and drinks! Have been there many times and have yet to be disappointed.

What can I say - walking into Coney Island is like stepping back in time and into an American Institution. While they are famous for their Coney Island Dog, the hamburgers, soups (seasonal), and homemade beans are also excellent. Line up and watch your dog (or burger)come right off the grill and be prepared in front of you to your... More

Of course everyone knows about the hot dogs, pretty much the same for my 50 something years, they are excellent, but I just had an egg sandwich so good it inspired me. Cheese, fried egg, on a bulky, that and a Polar orange dry and I almost got over my X. Excellent Greek salads as well, veg soup, I just... More

Yes the place is a Worcester Institution and yes the dogs have gotten smaller and the prices higher but there's just something about it. The chocolate milk, chili cheese dogs prepared up the arm of your server, the booths. It all just reeks of when Worcester had a Main Street, Worcester Market, Sears, White Castle and after you had a... More

I guess if you're from around here or in town you need to go here. The place is something to see has not changed in forever. Hot dogs are hotdogs. You will smell like the place when you leave. Yucky! BECAREFUL where you park - YOU WILL BE TOWED. Enjoy

My favorite place for lunch, hands down! You have to come here for the hotdogs, it's not a rule but it probably should be. Thanks !

Yeah, everyone may go here for a dog but I go here for the homemade mac and cheese. If that ever disappears off the menu, I'll be oh so sad! That mac and cheese is ever so tasty and so filling. I usually get a chili cheese dog, a bowl of mac and a chocolate milk and I'm usually stuffed... More
