We stopped in here to try it. I've bought Nathan's hot dogs before and they were fine. This place is not. I ordered a chicken ceasar salad (yes, stupid idea). The lettuce was frozen and the chicken had been microwaved into a slab of rubber....More

All of the tables were dirty. No soap to wash hands in the men's room. Onion rings were doughy. Hot dog and French fries were good. Hamburger was just plain, nothing special.

Received our food immediately, obviously already cooked. Small hot dogs & thin burgers. Not good value for your dollar. Won’t be returning. On a good note, very friendly servers.

Food was classic Coney. But the floor was so greasy the condiments area was a disaster. No one attending it a bit pricey though staff was friendly and efficient but the place needs a good scrub

Great coney dogs. Loved the fries. A bit on the expensive side but totally worth it. You can also get phylly steak sandwiches as well as Arthur Treachers fish and chips.

There's nothing like the crunch of Nathan's hot dog. It's the natural casing that gives it. I just had the funnel cakes. Yummy!!! Warm and crunchy with the slight dusting of confectioner's sugar on top. If you can't get to the place in Fort Myers,...More

New, clean restaurant. It was our first time to the Fort Meyers and the newest Cape Coral location. Service was excellent and the menu was larger then I thought it would be. We will be back!
