Coney Island Hot Dogs is set to open a new restaurant at 7733 Ulmerton Rd Ste 3. An opening timeline is still TBD, but the owner continues to post frequent updates on Facebook. The restaurant will serve John Morrell all meat hot dogs — and they serve both short and “World Famous” foot-long hot dogs. Both the hot dogs and the buns are perfectly cooked with steam.

The original Coney Island Drive Inn was founded in Brooksville in 1960 by Darrell and Gertrude Todd. That location was in Brooksville in an old boat manufacturing building. Legend has it that in 1961 Elvis Presley paid a visit to Coney Island while filming a movie in Inverness.

Ownership would change hands several times through the decades when in 2014 Sally Lee purchased Coney Island Drive-Inn with her son Carter Lee. They brought on Dad (John Lee) to help. Coney Island now was additional locations in Zephyrhills, Crystal River, Bushnell, just outside The Villages, and soon Largo.

The menu features shoe string fries, chicken wings, fried fish boxes, loose meat sandwiches, char grilled burgers, and of course a bevy of hot dogs. In addition to their foot-longs, they also have signature offerings such as the Reuben Dog. This variety is made with spicy brown mustard, 1,000 island dressing, and melted Swiss cheese.

Those with a major appetite can sink their teeth into Norm’s Big Dog. This is a regular hot dog topped with your choice of loose meat, slaw, chili cheese, and onion rings.
