great coney's

Just an old place- but once you get past that -they have a GREAT coney. Service was fast - especially as we went right before the hockey game. All I can say is YUM! They only take cash- no plastic. Only a couple of blocks from the Fort/Cass people mover station.

Some of the best coney dogs you will ever have. Fast service and reasonable prices. A definite stop for true coney dog lovers.

Went here for lunch because the place we were going too had an hour wait and we were hungry and on a time constraint... walked in and it smelled like a dirty bathroom so we walked right out.

I love Lafayette Coney Island so much that I probably have already written a review on it, but I don't care -- I'm writing another! In an increasingly charmless world, Lafayette stands out as a place that never changes and is always as good as you remember. The waiters may not be the same guys who were there when my... More

Went here while attending the auto show. Walker over and had two coney dogs in front of me in 60 seconds. Great staff.., lots of character. Best of all the dogs were fantastic. I always thought skyline dogs in Cincinnati were the best. No more... They just sank to #2
