“A Fort Wayne Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

This place is a must for Fort Wayne diners. It's been there forever and it's a fun "experience" for kids to walk through the kitchen and eat at the counter. Coney dogs and chili are great, food is cheap, and service is good too. If you want to visit a staple of the Fort Wayne area, or take your family out for fun little dining experience, you've gotta stop here!

“Like being in New York!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

What fun it was to drive by this packed little diner while exploring downtown Ft. Wayne! Drove around the block to come back. Glad we did! Coney dogs on steamed buns only $1.35. Cash-no credit cards. Nostalgic bar stools, bentwood chairs & small tables. Friendly servers make you feel like "one of the gang"!

“Land mark in Fort Wayne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Steamed hot dogs with old time small bottle cokes. Brings you back to the 50s and 60s. It's a great night out with friends. Certainly reminds you ou your youth and days gone by. Not the most healthy meal you have ever had but very tasty.

“Famous Coney's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

As a former resident of Fort Wayne I know when I go on my annual visit I know where to go get the best Coney Island hot dog. It's been a major attraction for many years having served a few of our presidents. Great staff and great food.
