This is a Fort Wayne landmark. They have the best coneys around. The only negative is the seating and rather cramped.

When a restaurant has been operating continuously for more than 100 yrs. - you must be doing something right. Quirky little hot dog diner in downtown Fort Wayne. I had 3 coneys and my wife had 2. Lots of onions and not a bad taste. Not fine dining - but fun.

Best hotdogs around! Awesome place to meet up with family or friends and get plenty of food without breaking the bank. This landmark is a must for visitors as well as locals.

Came back into town from a day at Pine Lake swimming with the family. Had our 6 year old Grandson with us, and he just didn't want to go to Coney Island. He had never been there before, just had his mind made up It was to be a No Go. Grandparents had their way since we were driving. Turns... More

Great time at the zoo. Well marked with signs. Walkways/paths were wide and well maintained. Staff well informed and eager to share information about the animals and habitat.

Fort Wayne's most famous eatery, Coney Island holds a special place in the hearts of many in the area. So many folks have grown up hearing their grandparents, aunts and uncles, parents and old friend talk about their first coney dog at Coney Island. They serve up a great coney dog and a coca-cola in the glass bottle. Not much... More

Me & my wife went there for lunch. The hot dogs are good. It's just had to find the parking. There is a pay parking lot close, but it's hard when you are on a fixed income.

You want old fashioned Coney Island Hot Dogs then this is the place to go. Coke in the bottle like the old days. This is real deal.

What can you say about the best coney dogs in Fort Wayne. Add chili, baked beans and you are on cloud nine. Very glad that Coney Island is still here even after ownership change.
