Maybe we had too high expectations for Fort Wayne's number 1 restaurant on Trip Advisor, but we found that the food was average at best. We did like the diner's style, ambiance, and cheap prices, but I don't quite understand why this place takes the number 1 spot. Surely Fort Wayne has something better?

First of all, I'm from Jackson, Michigan where coneys are a way of life. Coneys there are different from the Detroit, Flint, and Kalamazoo coneys, but they were ALL conceived by Macedonians about 100 years ago and we appreciate them all, even though we swear by our favorites (Virginia Coney Island, please, but only if Tommy Dogs aren't available...)

Have heard about this place for a long time. My Dad went here when he was young. Friendly service, fast service. The coney dogs were pretty good but the historic part of this was the best. Loved it.

I spent a year and a half working on both sides of Michigan state, and they had coney places everywhere, but nobody had a real coney dog, they were "all" chili dogs to the last one. Coney island in town has been here perhaps longer than my 62 years of life and has always done them the original way. A... More

You just can't beat this Fort Wayne classic spot. Parking can be difficult during the lunch hour. But trust me the coney dogs are worth it. Don't you dare order only one. You will regret it. Order at least two or more. Great prices too!

Old time diner atmosphere that's 102 yrs old. Great simple food. Coney dog and chili soup were both very good. Old time Coca-Cola bottles add to the overall experience. Definitely worth a visit if near downtown ft wayne.

Another must do for Fort Wayne visitors. Been around over 100 years. Old style diner. Coneys are good but atmosphere is better.

Generations of families have visited Coney Island. When you walk in you can tell it hasn't changed in 100+ years. Coke in a bottle, 2 coneys, and a bowl of chili. Every single time.
