Landmark hod dog joint

My first visit was about 60 years ago. Now that I live far away this place is always visited when we're in town. The facility is grungy but authentic with great hot dogs. You have to try it!

I luv this place! great historic landmark with the best dogs ever. I only get here about once a month, but when I do, its always enjoyable. I think," how can the dogs be better than others Ive had" but they are, maybe it s the dog or the bun, but they are tasty. Love the inside of the place,... More

Order the Coney dog and you can't go wrong - mustard, chili and onions on a grilled dog - yum. It's simple and quick. Then there's the atmosphere from the 50's? Graffiti carved booths, and the wonderful dripping mustard neon sign. My relatives want to return here when they visit. I know people who get off the highway when passing... More

I have been going to Coney Island since I was little when the hotdogs were just $.25 and the chocolate milk was served in glass bottles with cardboard caps. I know it's weird to drink chocolate milk with hotdogs, but it's what you do there. The hotdogs are EXACTLY the same as when I was a kid, and OMG, I... More

You simply cannot beat Coney Island for their hot dogs and the atmosphere. No frills, no messing around ... order up and sit in one of the booths that's been sat in for generations. The only place I know where a $5 gift certificate will last you several meals! Order "2 Up" and you won't be disappointed.

If you love Hot Dogs... you won't be disappointed in George's Coney Island! Great Tasting! Steamed Buns! Cheap! Fast and Friendly service. It's a Home Run!!! Get it with "the works" Brought my 87 year old Mother here (she's been coming here since she was a child) and she chowed down two dogs herself!

Hubby is a hot dog connoisseur and must try the local hot dog places where ever we land. This was first on his our list as we settle in Oxford, Massachusetts. The place has been here forever and has great steamed buns, meat sauce and comes with fresh onions and mustard. Hubby loved every bite!

off the beaten track for pre-theatre dining! just a couple of blocks from the hanover theatre, the coney island lunch awaits you! a very brief menu, for sure, but you can not go wrong with their decades-old kayem hot dogs....i had a pair of dogs called "the works," those dogs nestled in a soft, warm roll, slathered with mustard, chili...

Been eating here since I was a kid, still love it. If you've never been here definitely worth trying, my favorite is with their sauce mustard and onion, the term for that is "up". "I'll take 6 up please"
