This was my first trip to Coney although my wife used to go back in the day when her parents would visit Rogers Christmas House (sadly, now closed). She had been wanting to go back so we picked up her mom and headed out to Brooksville for lunch. This place is a real trip, from walls decorated with license plates, various signs and Elvis memorabilia, to chairs made out of old milk cans and tractor seats. Everyone was really friendly, the food (we all had hot dogs, fries and slaw), was good especially considering the low prices....$2.40 for a footlong with chili and onions. Best of all they have Sam Adams on tap served in a frosty mug for $2.00! That alone will keep me coming back. There's a lot more on the menu; burgers, wings, ribs, etc. and fried mullet on Wednesday nights...I'm there.
Seriously, this is the kind of place that you hope will stay forever and never change.

Owners and staff are fantastic atmosphere oozes old Florida roadside stop especially the brooksville home of the tangerine sign. A small chocolate shake is a must order no matter how full you may be.

The food is outstanding and the staff is great! Order the "Number 8", (Coney sauce and onions). Don't forget the fried pickles, they are worth the trip alone! The cheese fries are wonderful, even without the cheese. Anything you order will fill you to the brim! Don't go to Florida, with out coming to the Island!!

I grew up on Coney Island and when Blair bought it, all I can say is what an improvement! He kept the classics and added even more! I recommend the #8, footlong with chili and onions!

I love eating here! The food is always great and the staff is always courteous! I enjoy their footlong hotdog with coney sauce and onions, their yummy cheese fries, and a vanilla shake. My daughter raves about their chicken sandwiches and cheese fries. Their wings are always delicious as well. You should stop by and check this place out. It's a family friendly location that has been around for many years!
