Overpriced for sentimental fools. Small bland coney was $1.69. Juicy Lucy burger was a dried out quarter pounder with cheese for $4.99. Small paper container of warmed over fries with canned cheese sauce and a tablespoon of chili on top

The late Marvin Zindler was a consumer reporter for Eyewitness News, Channel 13. He loved "JCI" and gave them Blue Ribbon Awards pretty consistently.

The hot dog rolls are sweet and steamed, so they taste fresh. The regular hot dogs are pretty standard. It's the toppings--beanless chili, stadium cheese, finely diced white onions, and yellow mustard that really make you want to eat three or four. The chili cheese fries... come in second place.

On Wednesday nights, kids eat free. On Sundays, you can get a hot dog for 99 cents. They are good at notifying you of their specials on their marquees.

When I went to New York City, I was surprised they didn't have JCI's there, so I consider Houston lucky.

Pros: 99 Cent Sundays

Cons: A little more expensive than fast food

The Spring location (Sawdust Rd) has had a sign up for weeks touting July 8th five cent chili dogs. This morning they adjusted their sign to include the disclaimer "at downtown location only". Not a very customer friendly way of doing business... I doubt you will see another 75 years with this approach.

This is the best James Coney Island in Houston! They are open later than most. Their hot dogs and their cheese fries are excellent! The buns on thier hot dogs are still warm when you get them - like they were freshly baked!

PROS: hot dogs & cheese fries
