I grew up on CI hotdogs and now my kids request it every time we're downtown. I honestly don't know what it is about this place but the dogs are the best. Food is cheap, atmosphere is greasy spoon but has tons of character. If you're in town to visit it's worth it to stop in and grab some dogs... More

Leave your pretentious attitude at the door and give this place a shot. I've been going to Coney Island for hot dogs for as long as I can remember...it was a different place when Mama was still around, but nothing much else has changed in the 40+ years I've been going here for late-night, "after a night at the bar"...

Small local restaurant you won't want to miss. The chili dogs are the best ever, and they make a superb hamburger with fried egg called the Sundowner, yum. Also, if you get there early enough before they run out, you have to have their mac and cheese.

A Johnstown institution! The definitive hot dog. Make sure to order "with everything on it".... Their own chili sauce, mustard, finely-chopped onions, steamed bun.... oh my. If you're looking for ambiance, keep looking. If you want the best hot dog in town, go where thousands and thousands of Johnstowners have gone for decades. Oh, and you might want to order... More

They have the best chili cheeseburgers and hot dogs! It's a great place to visit and a must when you are in Johnstown. It's also a great deal.

One of downtown Johnstown's landmarks for many years, Coney Island's old fashioned hotdog / hamburg restaurant has been a tradition with many people to visit after a movie, after a date, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or late night snack. Once you've tasted their famous Hotdog with Everything, or Sundowner you'll be hooked!

Not much to say except this place is an institution. My sister and I visited and then called our grandmother's sister, age 92, who ate there as a teen. We are betting it's still just as good now as it was 80 some years ago. She lamented there wasn't a way to get her a Coney.

Love the sundowners. So good. My kids like going here for a burger. Not a huge variety of food but the two things they mainly sell are very good. Sundowners and hotdogs.

This is one of the first places we go when coming back home. Once raised here on Coney Island hot dogs, no other dog will do. This visit we noticed the difference in the quality of the hot dog and the sauce didn't have that zing it usually does. I understand that when second generations take over they try to... More
