Great place for breakfast or lunch. I highly recommend the sundowner. Good diner food. The restaurant is a Johnstown institution.

I have been eating Coney Island forever, I grew up here. Yes, it's true that they stack the buns up their arms to transport them from one area to another. They are serving many hotdogs at one time. They aren't always too happy, considering the drunk rushes, and the limited staff. The staff never changes, it is always the same... 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.
