“Great Old Time Coneys”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Quick service and a trip back into the past
Coneys are quite tasty with the 'runny' style simmered coney sauce - not the chunky stuff from a can

“Classic Dogs, Great Burgers!”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

As a native of the Fort Wayne area, Coney Island holds a special place in my heart. The coney dogs are the definitive, classic coney dog.

The service is the same quick, basic, 'how can they remember all of that?' service which you'll ony find in a place which has been serving for eons.

The restaurant had a high kitsch factor, but certainly not because they attempted to achieve it. It simply hasn't changed much... which is great!

I've been going to Coney Island for over 30 years now and just recently discovered they have hamburgers! I recently tried one on a whim and they were AMAZING! There's not much special about the burger, but in a way that's what's good about it. It doesn't attempt to be more than it is. It's just a good, fresh, honest burger whose ingredients meld together in a beautiful way! One word of warning, the staff often grumbles when too many burgers are ordered. Making burgers does seem to interrupt their flow, but you can always make it up to them through the tip... It will be worth the dirty look!
