Iconic place to have a quick bite to eat

Best fast food in the area, but it is an acquired taste. They are famous for their chili sauce which they put on hotdogs and hamburgers. I would recommend a sundowner!

The current owner has the personality of a Coney Island barker with hemorrhoids. The food is edible but four times the price of Sheetz convenient store. The atmosphere is like my school cafeteria from the 60s What a disappointment after all the hype.

I want to say it is 5 star but i cannot. I doubt they are using the same hot dog. They just have an off taste, as if it is a cheap brand. Too bad because when we go back to town we always got them for the freezer.We were not impressed at all.In fact, we were let down. the... More

People have told me how great this place was! We took our family twice. First time was awful! Second time was even more awful. The hot dogs are okay by them selfs sure not nothing to write home about. They are not top hot dogs. The stuff they call toppings is gross. The worst coleslaw ever. The chili is even... More

When I met my husband many years ago, I was introduced this fine place.You just cant seem to put into words to describe the flavor. They are still a reasonable price and still the delicious flavor.

I really miss this place. There is no dog like a Coney Dog. I would gladly give up ten Philly Cheesesteaks fop one Coney Island Dog. If you are in J-town make this a must stop.

A johnstown restaurant that must be experienced. if you enjoy chilli dogs you have to eat the best. A sundowner is an aquired taste but once you've had one you will always want one. A sundowner is a hamburger, mustard, chilli sauce, onions and an over easy egg.
