The old saying if it is not broke don't fix applies to this restaurant. It is not only a tradition in Fort Wayne it is a great tradition. It is unique part of our local culture.

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...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...More
