“Coney's menu is very simple: hot dogs, burgers and chili”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I go to Fort Wayne on a regular basis. Coney's menu is very simple: hot dogs, burgers and chili. They put a spicy Greek style chili over a tasty dog on a steamed bun. The dogs are small, but they have always been. This is by far the best hot dog restaurant in Fort Wayne, especially at $1.35 per dog. The Coney Island Wiener Stand has been at the same location for many years and always delivers a fantastic "Coney island" type hot dog. They serve about 5000 hot dogs every day. I heard they opened in 1918. I read somewhere that the chairs and tables here are the originals as are the seats at the counter.

I love Coney Dogs, they are delicious and amazingly priced. The atmosphere makes the experience, and it is a must do when in Ft. Wayne.

“I know, it's JUST a hot dog!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

But really, it's not. Nearly 100 years of tradition tells us this is more than that. A thin, crispy hot dog on a steamed bun topped with delicious chili and a handful of chopped onions - nothing more, nothing less. And at $1.39 each, you can eat your way to hot-dog heaven for not a lot of cash. Being a person who believes that a good hot-dog is truly the world's perfect food, this was like a trip to the Holy Land. Get there!

“Locals favorite”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We go here alot after church. The place is nostalgic, like going back in time. Just a small place right off main street downtown. The servers are friendly and service is pretty fast. The coneys for me are just average in flavor.

“A must do”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

No visit to Fort Wayne would be complete without a stop at Coney Island. The food is great, the coming and going of folks is great entertainment. Never had a bad experience in eating there for the past 30 plus years.
