Coney Island Lunch, Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton.

Following the recipe
and traditions of our grandfather and father, we have been making our Texas Wieners the
same way for over 80 years!

We start with a Berk’s All Beef Wiener. Sliced in half, but not all the way through, and grilled to perfection. Every action is performed in front of the customer, the way its always been. Then we serve it on a steamed National Bakery Roll (a local favorite).  Add our Dusseldorf mustard and fresh diced onions (diced by our 1928 Model Hobart
), the wiener is then topped with our famous homemade Chili Sauce. Mmmm..good!!!!

When you’re in Northeast Pa, just about every restaurant here sells some kind of version of our Texas Wiener.
When you have been around as long as us, they figure its got to help them. But don’t waste your time, come to the source and try the original!

    […] Take your pick. My only regret is that Mr. Griffith did not feature the Coney Island with the best tasting wieners (yah, we’ve got two of em!). But it does look the best. […]

    Hi Gretchen! I’m doing 4 at a time, because I’m sisnutaleoumly adding them to Flickr, and didn’t want to overwhelm my Flickr stream with photos of my feet :) And yes, I’m using my 28 everyday to try to get some continuity with the placement of my feet. In hindsight, I probably should have used my 20mm, but it’s manual focus (old lens from my Dad) and not sure I’d always want to focus manually! Thanks for the nice comments :)
