The Coney is an icon. The food is the same now as it was 50 years ago! Great chili and the pie is outstanding. Prices are amazing. This is truly a place you have to experience if you come to Pampa. Coney hot dogs rock!!!

The Coney is just a homey little 1950's style diner, where you know all the staff and everyone who walks in the door on a first name basis. The food is basic but good. Just burgers and dogs with the classic Coney chillie on everything. What makes this place worth visiting is Linda, the cook and proprietor. She is the... More

While Coney Island is no longer owned by the Gikas Brothers, the building, food and even some staff are the same. Linda did tell me they updated the restrooms. Very reasonable place to eat, but apparently you have to have grown up around it to appreciate the atmosphere.

This is a must go for anyone visiting Pampa. It's simple and delicious. It has a decent selection of cafe style food. The place has been around forever. If you've never been now's the time!

It is by far one of the worst restaurants I've eaten at in Pampa. When the chili gets low they just keep adding water. It's flavorless, burgers and dogs are cheap frozen dogs. If you believe the excellent reviews you will be horribly disappointed.

At one time the Coney Island was a fantastic little place with great food. Sadly, it's day has come and gone. The food is no longer edible.

If you like green-looking meat and terrible chili, this place is for you. It's been around forever and I'm not sure why. I guess it holds nostalgic meaning for the old folks in town. Small restaurant that seems a little grimy. Wouldn't go back here for anything. I heard someone say they have good pie. I'll pass

No visit to Pampa is complete without a visit to this historic little cafe. The coneys are good and they always have a nice selection of pie.

Everyone needs to try the Coney at least once in their life, especially chili lovers. This is a historic part of Pampa, serving great food since 1933. May not be good for your health, but it's great for your soul!!
