a visit to Shamokin or the general area is not complete without a visit to Coney Island. Still the best hamburger ever made. The sauce and onions give the burger an amazing flavor, second to none. Over the years, the staff has changed, but other...More

The atmosphere is like stepping back in time. However the staff is super efficient and polite. We didn't bring cash and the owner allowed us to just "stop back in to pay whenever we had cash". This is unheard of in this day and age....More

I've been here at all hours of the day and night. Somehow the food tastes a little better when I come here after midnight, ha.

Good, hometown flavors. When you are in Shamokin, PA don't forget to stop in. You won't be sorry. Everyone needs to try it.

This is a small out of the way place but they serve amazing artery clogging food. Perfect for when you get last call at a bar or wake up from a night of partying. The staff are always friendly.

This iconic Shamokin eatery has been in business for quite a long time. My father graduated from high school in 1932, and he worked there when he was a student! I just love the burgers! I always get mine as a cheeseburger, and they add...More

The cost of a burger or hotdog is over $4. That's ridiculous considering what it is! It's not worth it!!
