“Four generations of my family have had a Coney dog here.”
Review of Coney Island

Coney Island
Ranked #15 of 96 Restaurants in Galesburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 May 2014

The oldest restaurant currently operating in Galesburg, Illinois on Cherry St.

My grandfather, father, myself and my boys have all eaten here at one time or another. It's filled with with memorabilia of Coca-Cola and many other Americana themes.

Coney Island is a hot dog restaurant that caters to whatever style of hot dog you like. Get a standard Coney dog with their own special coney sauce and special mustard and load on the onions, or grab a Chicago dog with all the fixings. Get them as just the dogs themselves or get them with chips and a soda (sodas are located opposite of the counter.)

Walking in is like a time warp back to the 50's with a black and white checker-tile floor, wood counter with fixed spinning stools, tables for 4 and single arm table chairs. There are other neat things like an old pinball machine.

And...either before you eat or after, step across Cherry St. to Glory Days barber shop for a haircut by the coolest cat in town, Kyle.

This place is one of a kind. Very unique atmosphere and decor. Chili dogs are unlike I've had anywhere in the us. A bit pricey but worth it. Owners are super friendly.

This is one of the two oldest restaurants in town. It has wonderful 50's atmosphere that is real, not faked. The coney dogs is what I most often get, but the "maid-rights" are good, too.

This place is in central Galesburg on Cherry It's a hotdog place and you pay and order at the counter. On the menu you mostly have hotdog meals with chips and a soft drink. The interior is very nostalgia and there are lots of coca cola memorabilia. It's like going back in time. Reasonable prices.
