Coney Island Lunch in Shamokin, PA. Fri, 04/8/11 11:37 AM (permalink)
This may very well be my favorite Coney Island!

Owned by the same family for 93 years, this place cranks out some awesome burgers and dogs. 
 

 
The burger were small, but very juicy and tasty, loaded with fried onions and chili.  The hot dog had a great smoke and spice flavor.  I asked what brand they use and was told it's a secret
 
No menus, just burger and dogs.  No hours were posted, but I'm told they stay open till 2:00 AM on weekends.
 
Typical view from the front window of a Coney Island.
 

 
Funny, while I was waiting on the sidewalk for a friend to arrive.  A van pulls up and parks in front of Coney Island.  A BIG tough looking dude in an orange jumpsuit and shackles gets out, along with two deputies.  The one deputy was getting his paperwork together and I am looking around wondering where they are going.  Honestly, I thought they were going to take him for a hot dog!  As it turned out, the nondescript yellow building two doors down must be a magistrates office because they ended up going in there.
