I was visiting a friend and trying to decide where to eat. Coney Island was recommended and a great decision for a fast lunch! The coney is a classic served with mustard, chili, and fresh diced onions. I skipped the onions and opted for cheese....More

From the quaint diner atmosphere to the tremendous coney dogs and chili....everyone should visit Coney Island in downtown Fort Wayne. It's a great experience with quick service and lots to see as you wander the ever expanding downtown streets.

This is a must do in Fort Wayne. Warm environment harkens back to yesteryear. Must get the bottle of coke to really enjoy the experience, and walk next door for ice cream when you’ve finished your coneys and coke.

Tasty and original feel to the place. Love that you can come in through the back door... It was always my favorite thing to do as a kid

Cheap food. Quick fix for the hunger pangs. Nothing glamorous. Need to cook the hot dogs better. Cold frequently. Will go again.

I don’t get it. They don’t even make the best chili dogs in Fort Wayne. Lines are ridiculous, and can we get some fries? Serving bagged potato chips is sacrilege; I can get that at a gas station. I am convinced this place gets good...More

I remember as a little girl my Mom bringing me to Fort Wayne Coney Dogs. My Mom's favorite was always two Coney Dogs and lemon pie with a Coke. You can't leave without having a piece of lemon pie! 30 years later my husband and...More

My only fast food! There is no place like Coney Island. These are the best hot dogs anywhere and I live in Chicago. This is a Historical Place and the original stools are there. This is just an overall fun experience. Lines around the corner...More
