We always love Coney Island on Main Street. It is the best for their traditional coney dogs, beans, chili and Coke in a bottle. However on Thanksgiving eve or the day after it is a traditional family from out of town or in town tradition. Even standing line is fun because it's tradition for a favorite. We love Coney Island...

Love coming here for a quick lunch. Run like an old fashion diner. The coneys aren't the best I've had but the are good and the history of the place makes up the difference.

I am not a fan of hot dogs, but I love coney island. Something about the history makes the experience even better too.

This is an icon, my parents came here when they were kids, I've come here with my own kids. I never miss going here at least once, more if I can fit it in when I visit Ft. Wayne. The atmosphere is laid back but the food is EXCEPTIONAL. The taste takes me back to childhood every time. It's fantastic.... More
