Walking through the doors, it’s like you are stepping back in time. The hot dogs (with everything on them) are to die for! Goes good with a Big Ben’s Red Birch Beer to wash it all down. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. They...More

This is a small out of the way place but they serve amazing artery clogging food. Perfect for when you get last call at a bar or wake up from a night of partying. The staff are always friendly.

The hype about Coney Island does not live up to its standards here. Me and my girlfriend got 2 hotdogs and 2 hamburgers our bill was $20 and some change. The food had no distinct flavor expect from the piled high onions and horrid smell...More
