Many Hot Dog Shops in New Castle

There are two competing dog shops in town and Coney Island is one. The old restaurant opened in 1971 and is quaint and dark, the new one is light and more modern. The hot dog chili is what people come for. It is good but not my #1.....and so the competition keeps going.

The atmosphere isn't the best in the world but it is a hot dog place. the food is good and very reasonably priced. The people are friendly and have been there forever.

This place has been cranking out inexpensive meals since the 1920's. The portions are huge and priced for a budget eater. I love the history and unchanged decore of this treasured place. Great for a afternoon meal and step back in time.

I have been going here wigh my family since I was a little boy. My absolute favorite! The only problem is eating too many. It did seem like the sauce was hotter/spicier when I was younger, but that was probably do to young taste buds.

Well I must admit I used to order three chilli dogs with a milk. I am down to two. This place serves the best chilli dogs in the world! No exaggeration. I admit I like the original store down town best but the one out of town is fine on weekends. We arrived and the place was full. Even though... More

What can I say? Coney Island has been sitting on Wilmington Rd for more than forty years. I remember as a kid it was just a small place. We usually visit when back in town. I now live in a metro area (central Ohio) and have yet to find a decent chili dog. Thank you Coney Island!

These really are the greatest, maybe a little bit spicy, and I am not a big fan of spicy, but I love these. Have been eating them whenever I am in New Castle for many years. The stores are always clean and the personnel friendly.

Coneys is just one of those things you have to do if you are in New Castle. It is really just hot dogs - but order a few Hot Dogs with Everything (mustard, onion, chili) and a Fry with Cheddar Chili and enjoy a tradition all of the local residents love!

If you are in the New Castle area, you won't want to miss the delicious Coney Island hot dogs! Their fries & onion rings are very good. We like to eat in but they have a drive thru window. For family get togethers we often buy & take it all home. Also they sell the chili sauce in half pints... More

We visit New Castle once a year and this is always on our list of must have. We were here two weeks ago and I was a little disappointed. The chili was hotter than it has ever been when eating here. Overall the quality seemed to be a little off. Out of 24 years of stopping this is the first... More
