TULSA, Oklahoma -

An iconic downtown Tulsa restaurant served up its last lunches at its current location Wednesday.

The Coney Island Hot Weiners restaurant is moving from 4th Street to a new home in the Brady District; and while the restaurant isn't closing, the move is kind of sad for some folks.

Wednesday is the last day for the restaurant in its current part of downtown, and for regulars like Jeff Jankowski, it's bittersweet.

"I was born in ‘72 and I've been coming here my whole life. Before that my aunt and uncle, some of their early dates were sitting right in here, so this is a family tradition for me," he said.

It's a similar story for Jerry Sterns.

"I'm 73 and I've been coming here since I was about six or seven," he said.

He's lived in Oklahoma City for the last ten or 12 years but said he'll drive back to Tulsa just for the coneys.

Family tradition is part of what makes the place special and keeps people coming back according to owner Vicki Economou.

"You know everybody who comes in here is part of our family. From the employees, my daughter's working, my cousin, may aunt, my other aunt; we are all family here," she said.

Most of the customers were regulars for the last day before they move to the new place.

They plan to open the new location near Archer and Main, in the Brady District on Saturday, April 25th.
