Coney Shack combines Mexican and American street food with Southeast Asian flavors.

It was originally a 1,500 square foot BYOB with 20 people indoor dining space and 8 people outdoor.

Coney Shack started as a food truck in the Coney Island parking lot in 2013, and then as a Traveling food truck in 2015.IIn 2017, Connie House opened a physical store at 152 West 52nd Street in New York City. A year later, Connie House opened a pod kitchen for storage containers in the center of Times Square.

Menu items include five spice squid tacos, lemongrass chicken tacos, grilled ellot and a homemade bowl, burritos and quesadillas.

A must-try dish is the Mach dog, with Vietnamese caramelized pork, crispy onion skewers, melted Mexican cheese, sweet chili spicy mayonnaise, green onions and roasted sesame seeds. Use the blowtorch in front of the open-air kitchen to melt the cheese.
