Coney Island Sandwich Shop has been serving up its humble grub since 1926. There are photos on all the walls documenting the history of the place, and the people serving the food have as much history as the restaurant itself. The chili dogs and shakes are excellent, but they ARE chili dogs and shakes, nothing frou-frou about them. They do come with the gratifyingly low prices you would expect from such a meal. The best reason to visit this place is to enjoy the ambiance. This is one of the few places I have ever been where you can see people from all economic brackets eating cheek to jowl in companionable joie de vivre.
