This place looked great and the reviews seemed to back up that impression. I stopped in one day in the early afternoon following a meeting. The place is cool and has a genuine retro look and feel about it. Things went downhill from there. I had to wait in a very long line to reach the service counter, maybe 20... More

Expedience and atmosphere spells Coney Island. Why not? It is a fast paced fast food worth the adventure.

The fact that any eatery other than say, Miss Worcester, is above Coney Island is an embarrassment for all of Wormtown. If you don't think this is the finest place you have ever eaten, you should go back to whatever rock you crawled out from under. You can keep your fancy dining and give me 3 with everything and a...

Local place known for its hot dogs. Nothing fancy, extremely casual and very inexpensive. Chili sauce is good. 4 hot dogs and a soda for under $10.

I've lived in Worcester for over ten years now and have been passing by Coney Island Lunch for most of that time. People have spoken highly of it without getting into specifics. Well, last Saturday, my wife and I finally decided to give it a try. It was a waste of time and money. The restaurant still wears its early... More

Good stop while driving up to NH. Old school place with hot dogs. Go for the works and enjoy. Not for the salad or diet crowd! But worth the indulgence.

This place can't be beat. It's like a trip in a time machine. Dogs and burgers the way they ought to be.

Hot dog's are cheap and delicious! The atmosphere is great. I had the beans last time too and they were actually pretty good. Not the best I've had but definitely the best from a restaurant.

Don't know how we missed it all these years of visiting Worcester. Hot dogs. Hot Dogs. Hot Dogs. Oh, and I think there was Grilled Cheese on the board and perhaps baked beans. But they clearly are specialists and the specialty was hot dogs - steam dogs - soft bun - traditional toppings or the works (mustard, relish, onions, chili,... More

Not realizing that the establishment only takes cash, I proceeded to order our Chili Dogs and RC Colas. # 1: I'm always happy when a place carries RC. #2: If you're from a different region, please keep an open mind. We really loved the taste of our chili dog. It wasn't like our Texas Chili Dogs, but, it was very... More
