We ALWAYS stop here when were in town, hoping that Betty will serve us our breakfast! Huge portions and great coffee, wish we knew about this place when we were up at UMD. Great location downtown on Superior Street.

I stumbled upon this place and gave it a chance. As a transplant to Minny, I was concerned that nobody here knew how to make a great tasting coney. To my surprise, it was as good as the best Coney Island joints I've been to in other parts of the country. Parking isn't the best but the dawgs are definitely... More

Coney dog must have onions, mustard, coney sauce, warm bun and a tradition that is worth the same preparation over and over. Yum!

You can't find good Coney dogs easily down in the Twin Cities but you certainly can in Duluth! This classic diner has great Coneys fast - a couple of those will make a great meal. They have more to their menu but why mess with success? Quirky style the whole way makes the eating experience enjoyable for the whole family.

Hot dogs with chili---oh those french fries. Quick service--a fun stop. The Fond du lac casino is nearby...drop a buck or two....at the casino...but save a few bucks for Coney.

On the advice of the clerk at our hotel, he recommended Coney Island as a breakfast location. This classic restaurant did not dissapoint. Our party of four had French toast, a farmer platter, and two steak and eggs. The hash browns were very delicious, and for a breakfast, it rated well above average. The waitress was awesome...she made a fresh... More

Chicago Dog is great. For less than 5 dollar. With pepper and unions. Very friendly personel. We did not drive without a reason 2.5 hours from Minneapolis. It was worth it !!

After walking around Shore Line Park all morning a hot dog sounded good. Sharh described the various dogs and the original coney was my pick. The dog, chips and a root beer eased my hunger. This place opened in 1921 and Sharh knew all the interesting history. Great place!
