Love the coney dogs and chili. A must too is to drink a coke from one of the small glass bottles of 'yesterday year'.

Have been enjoying Fort Wayne Coney Island for SO many years! Definitely not fancy , but chances are you 'll bump into someone who 's been coming here forever. The dogs are what it 's all about. Be prepared for a short wait if you pop in around lunch hour. Located in downtown Fort Wayne. See if you can snag a piece of lemon pie too! My hubby's been enjoying this iconic hot dog heaven for over 65 years! Yes..65 is not a typo!

When you walk in, you see old tables, counter service. And the best dogs and sauce ever. This place is always busy. The atmosphere is nostalgic. They take your a order by memory and are always friendly. They have great pies and soda in a bottle. Love to visit.

Why? Because it is inexpensive. It is exactly what it says it is, a coney dog shop. The wait staff is FAST and professional. The dogs are great. And once more, it is inexpensive. "Two dogs with everything, bag of chips and a small Coke please,"

Our family loves this place!!! We have yet to find a better coney. You can watch the hot dogs grilling in the front window. They go the extra mile and steam their buns; this is a must for a good coney. The coneys are given a squirt of mustard, a generous helping of coney sauce and lots of onions. The onions are a must for me, but if you are not a fan, just ask them to leave them off. My husband likes the baked beans. The sauce is sweet and a little thin but uniquely Coney Island.
The atmosphere is definitely dated but that is part of the nostalgia. They have a lunch counter as well
as tables. If you park behind the restaurant, you can come in the back door and walk right through the kitchen. It's nothing special, but you should do it just because you can!
Coney Island has been in Ft Wayne for 100 years. They have earned their reputation. A stop at Coney Island is a must if you are in the area!
