When we are craving a hot dog this is the first place we think of. Been going there for more years than I care to remember and it never disappoints.

What can I say if you live in Worcester or grew up here you've probably heard of Coney Island.. They have great dogs and the "sauce " is awesome. Maybe even better than Hot Dog Annies barbeque sauce...

The name of this place is "George's Coney Island" according to the companies website and all of their printed promotional material and this is what fast food was like before it was reinvented by the McDonald brothers and Ray Kroc. It ought to be a museum. The coneys are good. The sauce is a little dryer than the Detroit style... More

This place has been around for generations and there's a simple reason why: quality for a good price. Yes, you're getting hot dogs and not something gourmet but you definitely get your bang for your buck. The old school atmosphere is inviting, and they even allow you to carve your name into the booths still! They have a small bar... More

I cannot understand how anyone could give Coney Island less than an EXCELLENT rating! Do NOT complain about the decor - we have enjoyed this tradition for the past 60+ years and don't ever want an "update". Those benches have our grandfathers' initials carved into them! Do NOT complain about the lack of menu - if you go for anything... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years when in need of a quick hot dog fix in the downtown Worcester, MA area, but it is completely mediocre. The service is fine, as you wait in line for your selection of condiments on your dog(s) and this line moves rapidly. But the reality here is that the dogs are... More

The nostalgia and the hot dogs (with the works: yellow mustard, chili sauce and onions) are still as great as ever! Thank God this place never changes!

Don't expect the Ritz. Best dogs around. Nothing else but chips and soda. They have a full liquor licence if you imbibe. At times long lines but even with 20 ahead of you it doesn't take more than 5-10 minutes. BEST DOGS around. Go there 2-3 times a month forever !

This place looked great and the reviews seemed to back up that impression. I stopped in one day in the early afternoon following a meeting. The place is cool and has a genuine retro look and feel about it. Things went downhill from there. I had to wait in a very long line to reach the service counter, maybe 20... More

Expedience and atmosphere spells Coney Island. Why not? It is a fast paced fast food worth the adventure.
