Beth Truitt owns Carl’s Coney, a Claremore landmark. Her father started the business in 1974, and Beth has owned it for 11 years. “We have the same great menu now as we did when Dad opened the doors years ago,” said Beth, who has also added tasty items to the menu over the years. Beth worked for her dad while attending high school in Claremore. When people who have moved come back to town to visit, they like to stop in to the old hangout. “It’s very special to see generations of families that have enjoyed Carl’s over the years,” said Beth. Her mother, Jean Schloss, still works at the store one day each week. The Carl’s Coney menu includes coneys, kraut dogs with chili and cheese, three-way chili, polish sausage, hot links and much more. They also serve some great salads – taco, chef, chicken or ham – plus homemade tuna and ham sandwiches.
