    The chili dogs are the best! And it is a great environment if you like having conversations with new people!

    Terrible food, dirty place, bad service etc. Cheap would be a pro. I know its Detroit but not everything has to be bold and rough.

    One of two top places for coney dogs in Detroit (the dish started as a grab-and-go snack for auto workers). Watch this video for the best places to find chili in the U.S.:

    Better than American Coney Island. Hot dogs had a snap and chili was better and more plentiful.

    Gotta go with the classic coney dog -- coney sauce diced onions and mustard. Heck have two! And a Labatt Blue to wash it down.

    From Bill Addison's review: "Any odyssey into Detroit's food culture begins with a coney—a chili dog cradled in a steamed bun with chopped onion and a couple slashings of yellow mustard." Read more

    I prefer this spot to American Coney next store. It seems more tasty altogether and the frank has a better bite.
