Fodor's Review

Detroit's contribution to gastronomy is the Coney dog: a hot dog topped with cheese, onions, and chili, all in a bun. Every day, suburbanites and visiting celebrities in stretch limos share counter space with workers getting off the night shift at this area institution, which serves all day.

Lafayette Coney Island Review

Still haven't found a better coney dog anywhere. Doesn't matter if you show up in a tuxedo or a work uniform, they are happy to serve you.

Lafayette Coney Island Review

Lived here all of my life and still can not understand why people get so excited about a hot dog...
