Tucked away just behind Antique Alley, The Original West Monroe Coney Island is the perfect blend of comfort food and nostalgia for locals and visitors alike. While enjoying a delicious lunch, you can browse their impressive collection of memorabilia and old license plates, ranging from surrounding states all the way across the pond to Germany! Open only during the day, locals pack out the restaurant, some even daily, eager to reminisce on old times and create new memories together.
While the atmosphere is nothing short of signature, the menu is even more of a special staple. You can never go wrong with a classic hotdog (July is National Hotdog Month after all!), or hamburger, but this spot is historically famous for its chili cheeseburger. Just ask anyone local- it’ll be sure to make the best impression! The steak sandwich is a popular favorite, as well as their most unique menu addition- tamales! You can even kick it up a notch with a tamale pie, adding their famous chili and cheese on top of three house-made hot tamales.
Whether you’re a frequent patron, or if you’ve never been before, The Original West Monroe Coney Island delivers a true Monroe-West Monroe experience for every customer that walks in the door.
