I used to frequent this place for coney island hot dogs, onion rings, fries, drinks, etc. before going to the ball park in Bailey to watch the kids play. It was always packed and no matter what you ordered it was good. That was about 14 years ago. About 5 years ago they moved the entire structure (in the shape of a hot dog on a bun) to a new location near a creek - very nice setting. New owners too. Since I had moved out of the area we went to the Coney Island only for a treat and a 90 minute scenic drive. Today my husband and I were in the area and decided to stop in to eat. We were the only two in line for about 10 minutes before the employee behind the counter said "someone" would be with us soon. We waited another 10 minutes until a woman came out of the back to take our order. A family with a baby arrived at about the same time and it was more important for her to scream, and I quote, " Shut the door, shut the door. Bring the baby in and put her on the table; or him, or it, whatever. I don't want the heat in here. " I couldn't believe she called the baby an it and I'm sure the parents didn't hear her remark. It was cooler outside than it was inside so I didn't really understand her concern. Finally we placed our order -2 regular hot dogs and one foot long, all with mustard and sauerkraut. When I heard the total I had to back up. Eighteen dollars for 3 hot dogs. No drinks, no fries or onion rings - 3 HOTDOGS!!!!!. And you guessed right - they were terrible. Between the nonexistent customer service, the uncleanliness, the prices and one of the worst hot dogs I've ever had I will not return here. It was once a wonderful, well known and much loved place - now it insults the very idea of a coney island hot dog as well as the people it serves.
