I live in Johnstown PA. Coney Island is convenient for me because I'm a "bus" person, and the main transit center is a block away. Sometimes i got to wait, so when im hungry, I slink in to Coney Island Lunch for a Hotdog or a Sundowner. I always get a kick out of the employees there because typically, they... More

An iconic staple of downtown that once was the talk of the town is now just another place with so-so food. A sub-par hot dog with runny, tasteless sauce (compared to how it use to be) is now almost $2.00. You still can't buy french fries (& gravy) there, it's lost its ambiance - but outside of McDonalds, it's the... More

This review is not meant to slam Coney Island by any means...LOL. What can you say about Coney that hasn't been said countless times before. Back in the day when people shopped in town rather in malls, Coney was a busseling place, almost all day and night. Still a great place to eat and their main fair is hotdogs. Go... More

Mimicking Coney Island hotdogs in New York, this is probably one of the oldest dining sties in Johnstown. The toppings seem endless, but however your like your hotdog, it is sure not to disappoint.

This place is a Johnstown tradition. This is not a fancy restaurant. What it is, is a fantastic hotdog shop. This place has been here forever and is open nearly all the time. You can't beat their hotdogs. Order them with "everything" and you will get a perfectly cooked hotdog with mustard, chilly and onions. They also sell hamburgers, but... More

Best place in town for after hours. Love the Sundowners and delicious hotdogs. Dirty and dated building, with no amenities. Terrible service, but the food and value are amazing and it all adds to the charm.

So we read about Coney Island Lunch on TripAdvisor, and then 2 local couples at our hotel told us we just HAD to go to there, so we figured the place must be fabulous. We took the trip downtown and walked into this little hole-in-the-wall place with neon posters warning "NO CREDIT CARDS", "NO DEBIT CARDS", and "NO TALKING ON... More
