Fort Wayne's Coney Island Wiener Stand has been a piece of its Americana since 1914. The nostalgic hot dog stand is a must see for any visitor of Fort Wayne, IN.
I cannot imagine making a trip to the city...or state for that matter...without making a stop to the famous Coney Island Wiener Stand. Going to Coney Island is a local must and everyone around the area has heard of it.
When I first met my husband in 1997 he brought me to the famous Coney Island and I thought "how bizarre" that you could actually enter through the back door. I had never seen the front door until I drove by the other day to snap the photo for this post. My husband and I brought his parents and our son to the stand for lunch our first day back in Fort Wayne. Coney Island has been a long standing tradition in his family since his parents moved into the area over 50 years ago.
The atmosphere at Coney Island is very laid back and relaxed. It is just a place to hang out eating a great hot dog with the famous Coney Island sauce and just reminisce with good friends.
The menu includes the Coney Island Hot Dog, cheese dog, burgers, chili soup, chips, baked beans and pie plus an assortment of fruit pops, bottled coke, Pepsi products, milk and chocolate milk, coffee and juices. The prices are great as all of us ate for about $17 and take orders are welcome. However, in keeping their long standing tradition Coney Island only excepts cash.
If you are visiting the Fort Wayne, IN area take time to stop by the famous Coney Island Wiener Stand and take in a true piece of local nostalgia. Coney Island is located at 131 W. Main Street and you can reach them at 260-424-2997.
