Coney 1950 National Hot Dog Month Day 17

coney 1950

Coney 1950 at 119 Main Street in Webster, MA. It’s a new place serving up old-school style Coney Island Hot Dogs; there’s even a secret Coney sauce recipe! Unlike many other Coney Island Hot Dog joints I visit – most of which are several generations old, Coney 1950 is only two years old. Owner Art Bruner started out with a hot dog cart doing catering and events and was so successful, he opened up his own hot dog joint!

Coney 1950 does it Old School

From the secret Coney sauce to the steamed buns to the grilled dogs to the old school attitude, Coney 1950 is very much a true Coney Island hot dog stand. They serve up a grilled Kayem dog and top it with the standards, plus kraut, home-made chili, and their home-made Coney Island sauce. The sauce itself is on the sweet and tangy side with a cumin back end. It was delish!

The Coney 1950 decor has a retro feel too. Giant photos of Coney Island Amusement part adorn the walls along with vintage signs; there’s even an old time looking jukebox (with CD’s). The checkered floor and the art deco stools give it a real fifties feel too.

Coney 1950 still does catering, so if you want a hot dog themed event, give Art a call. You can find him through the Facebook Page or you can just stop in. In the two shorts years they’ve been open, Coney 1950 has become a fixture in Webster. Stop by for one “all the way” and tell them “the Hotdogman sent me.”

Enjoy the video.

I shoot Hot Dog Stories with a Kodak Zi8 camera with an Audio Technica ATR288W VHF Battery-Powered TwinMic Microphone System, a Flip Ultra HD camera, and a 60″tripod. I edit with Cyberlink PowerDirector 11 Ultimate. I will also take some stills with my new Canon EOS Rebel Camera.

About hotdogman

I enjoy traveling and eating hot dogs wherever I am. I like to sample the local variations of America's favorite encased meat and discovering the stories behind the hot dog, the vendor, and the regional preferences. I also write about How to Start a Hot Dog Business, The Hot Dog Truck, The Shark Tank, and I have a personal blog, RobMerlinodotCom
