“Good place to eat”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Coney Island Drive Inn is a good place to eat. I have visited several times in the past year. This weekend we visited Saturday and Sunday. The atmosphere is very good. The hot dogs are great. The service is friendly and fast.

The bad side is it is cash only. I dislike businesses that do not take cash and then have a ATM onsite to gouge you with. Another negative is that you are charged for refills.

One visit in the past was marred by the no credit card policy. We are always traveling through when we visit Brooksville. We stopped at Coney Island to eat and learned the did not take cash after ordering. We had to leave without eating. On another visit Coney Island was closed during the day. I can not remember the day but it was during the daytime.

On Saturday we dined inside and on Sunday we dined outside. Both were very enjoyable experiences. I had a footlong chili dog and a slaw dog. They were perfect! I also had the chili cheese fries on Saturday but I did not care for them. However I have not been eating fries for a while so my taste was off for them. I would encourage anyone to try it out. If they took credit or debit cards I would have gave them five stars.

“Who doesn't have a favorite hot dog stand?”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Coney Island Hot Dog stand is our favorite place to grab a quick dinner. They have wonderful foot-long hot dogs on fresh steamed buns.. I like mine with chili, cheese & onion or with sweet coleslaw on top! Their loaded french fries and vanilla milk shakes are wonderful too. We love taking our nephews and nieces here!

“Good Hotdogs, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Visited the restaurant this past weekend and enjoyed it. I had a footlong and a side of fries. The hot was good. The french fries were shoestring fries and very good. Very casual and open seating are. There is also seating outside. The prices are very reasonable.
