Nothing fancy but just down right the best Coney Dogs in the Fort Wayne area. Warm steamed buns, with just the right amount of toppings from Chili sauce to Onions. Old fashioned Coke bottles. Little bags of chips make this the perfect place to eat at an old fashioned counter seating, or metal tables from yester year. Like living &... More

Coney Island is a place of history in the fort and it holds onto that tradition well. From the old time tables to the belly up to the counter feel, the experience takes you back to the good old days. The small, old fashioned coke bottles with a straw to drink from really brings back memories. Had a couple coney's... More

This is a awesome place to eat and a definite must experience at least once for everyone. Still set up and looks pretty original. It was opened well before I was born. My family likes to go there on a regular basis. They have the little bottles of cokes and amazing dogs with the best Coney sauce I've had. We... More

I have never been & we were hungry. It was definitely worth it hands down!!!!! Now we can't wait to take our kiddos there when the occasion calls for it, who knows, they get a surprise all the time.

The outside and the back of the building let you know what you are getting into. The bathroom is really the worst of it all, so avoid that, unless it has been remodeled. The experience is just ok. Kids seem to enjoy it a lot, sitting at the counter. I am pretty picky. Be sure and save room for ice... More

A must stop when you visit Ft. Wayne. The place hasn't changed in forever! Great food and great atmosphere! They have Burgers, but you'll want the Coney dogs and chilli soup! Go now!

What a cool little place to grab a hot dog (or 6). :) This place has sort of an "everyone knows your name" Cheers type of vibe with pleasant, cool staff, and great food. It's also got a ton of history, and is apparently a hot spot for people like Jay Leno when they're in town. Definitely worth stopping in... More

If you are looking for something nostalgic...this is your place. Food was good and cheap. Coneys and cheeseburgers were very good. Buns are delicious. Other than that there isn't much left. Wish they would have had fries, milkshakes, or some more desserts. But this place was good. Prices are good.

I have been coming to Coney Island since I was a teenager with my grandparents, who use to come for years even before that. When you walk in (you can come in the front or come in the back. If you are familiar with Coney Island, you know to come in the back since that's what the locals do), you... More
