  • I absolutely LOVE this place! Unfortunately I no longer live in the area and RARELY make it back, but, when I do...I make sure to eat here. The hot dogs are the best, the staff is quick and friendly, and the locals love it. That alone says what a great place this is. Now if they would just move to my neighborhood and open a restaurant here all would be right with the world.

  • Being back in my home town brings back good memories. It is wonderful to see the Coney Island drive-inn is still around and doing well. The place was kitchy and had a wonderful atmosphere with friendly service. The decor captured Brooksville's history throughout its decor perfectly .
