About George's Coney Island


There has been a lunch counter at 158 Southbridge Street since 1918 but Catherine and George Tsagarelis made it the landmark it is today. After buying the business, they quickly focused on the humble wiener as their main menu item. In 1938 they renovated the restaurant in the utilitarian art deco style that it boasts today. The cost of one hot dog today would have fed a couple of hungry families in 1929 when the wieners were a nickel each.There has been a lunch counter at 158 Southbridge Street since 1918 but Catherine and George Tsagarelis made it the landmark it is today.
