The restaurant has the feel of an old diner, they have great food and excellent service. I visit this place each morning on the way to work and pick up a breakfast sandwich. The service is always friendly, the food is always good. Whenever I have more time I stop for breakfast which is served until 3pm. I have had... More

This classic diner is a great location not only for their classic coney (as the name suggests) but especially for a great bacon-eggs-hashbrowns-toast breakfast. Coffee is excellent as well and above all, great service. You'll find few options for a diner breakfast that will stand up to Coney Island!

Our daughter told us about this place. They love to hunt out where the locals eat and they are usually the best. Well, this place hits the mark! The breakfasts are delicious and very inexpensive too. The eggs were done perfect, and the coffee delicious. It's fun to be around the locals too. The place is old but very clean... More

My last review of 'this' place I thought I was reviewing what is called the Deluxe Coney Island on First Street regarding coneys and Gryos. I no longer go to 'this' 'original' coney.island because of the way I was treated in 40 below weather. The OPEN SIGN was ON so I parked and went to the door. It was locked.... More

Good, maybe not quite Detroit's Lafayette or American but close! Great old-school diner vibe right downtown, fast friendly service.

Nothing fancy...just good coneys, fries, and shakes at a reasonable price. Has changed little over the years...however the restrooms have been updated and are shared with several other businesses in the building. A key is needed to use them...so they are cleans. The breakfast menu looks good!

Stopped in for breakfast. Portions were huge and the place at an old style atmosphere which was neat. Coffee was good as well!

Best coney sauce and onions. We enjoy the 'doubles', Gyros are packed and sauce is also delish! Have also enjoyed the coney burgers and malts. Only a couple of places you can get a true MALT. YUM!

Nothing fancy here. Just plain good food. We stopped here this morning for breakfast. The pictures I saw made me choose it. The place was clean & our server was beyond good.... Friendly and checked on us multiple times (I was impressed). The food was reasonable and tasty. A neat place to check out. Like stepping back in time :)
