A trip through time at Coney Island Lunch
With over 40 years experience, Pete started out working as a busboy for his grandfather Steve before making his way up to a cook. Over the past few decades, Pete estimated he has cut over four million buns, affectionally earning him the title "Bun King." When Pete's not behind the grill, you can find him making soups, our Grandma Barb's rice pudding, and his Firehouse-style chili-con-carne. Pete has made it known he is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan by all of the memorabilia on the walls.
Starting as a busboy soon after Pete, Bob also worked his way up to a cook. Today Bob is the master chili sauce and hamburger maker. He only uses the same spices and all the same ingredients as his forefathers. Bob's sauce has been enjoyed by our customers for over four decades. His meatball style hamburger patties, made from lean Schiff's ground round, are legendary. No fast food burgers here; after Bob deep fries them, he marinates them in a special chili sauce before they are served. The taste is unbeatable!
