Memorable coney island dogs. Great finely ground and well seasoned chilli sauce, great dogs. Same high quality dog they had 40 years ago. Worth a stop.

I had heard good things & I was very disappointed. No ice for the drinks. Food had no seasoning. Waitress was borderline rude.

Every year we go there For My husband's birthday and get a quart of sauce and take home for his party. They always have great service and know who we are been going there for years

For a fun and enjoyable time, visit Luna Park. Very accessible with mass transit. This park has something for every member of the family. From exciting rides, bumper cars and board games to beautiful rides for the young ones

The money had been in GI for many many years under the same family ownership. The Coney dogs and fries are delicious....they are unique and made the same way as when they opened. The interior takes you back to the lunch counter days with swivel stools and wooden booths. Great experience!!

I grew up in Grand Island and ate there often. I moved away 40 years ago and its a mandatory visit whenever I come back. My standard order is 2 coneys with everything and a chocolate malt. Even my wife and kids are addicted. We just visited Grand Island over the weekend and had to eat there Friday and Monday.... More

Simple menu that has been mastered since 1933. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere. Did not disappoint. They didn't have to convince us to try a chocolate milkshake.
