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

I've been eating here all my life. Every time I come to town this is one of the first things I do! I got to town around 9:30pm and right after getting settled into the hotel, we went right over to Coney Island! I love the pictures on the wall of Johnstown throughout the years. I love that kind of... More

We ordered Sundowners and Coneys and got a side of some restaurant drama, since all the others were sold out by 2pm. It was a really cool place, great photos on the walls, and really historic, but the food wasn't really that great - though the flipside is the prices are ridiculous!

I grew up eating Coney's (with everything). They taste the same today as they did 30 years ago. Give them credit for consistency. Actually, other than the price nothing really has changed at all, and I love that. Every visit to J we do a Coney run. Coney's and Sundowners... life's simple pleasures. Throw in a raisin cookie while your... More
