“We've been going here since the sixties.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

Don't miss the foot long with cheese, mustard, and onion, and their fries are great. Wish they'd paint and spruce up a little. Looking a little tired like me and like it needs a good cleaning.

People have raved about this place for over 30 years and I have no idea why.

“Keep the 5 star reviews going!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

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.

“Long mustard and kraut and a short slaw dog essential order”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

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 BEST place to eat in Florida!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2011

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!!
