Wild Coney & Grill serves up American diner staples with a Mediterranean twist, sliding diners a menu full of hot dogs, gyros, and burgers. Coney Island dogs ($1.95) arrive doused in traditional chili, mustard, and onion toppings, and buns and firmly gripped fingers struggle to contain the seasoned ground beef and the laissez-faire political leanings of the loose burger ($2.25). The gyros supreme meal ($7.75) pairs pita-enveloped lean lamb and cucumber sauce with a fresh, vegetable-rich mini Greek salad and fries. The restaurant serves hearty breakfasts all day, bearing heavy platters of the Wild breakfast special ($5.75), weighted with three large eggs, two slices of bacon, sausage, one slice of ham, and an astronaut-collected cube of jellied sun.
