Poor food, the kitchen looked very dirty, same as the ice on the drinks we had with some black spots. I'm really surprised reading good reviews about this place, or they've lost a lot of quality lately or people don't know much about food... Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

We came here after the Bill Maher show at the Fox Theatre, and what a treat! Hubby had two coneys and I had one of the American Special, a coney dog with loose meat added to it. The flavor of these dogs is AMAZING.

The cheese fries were great! Your coney dogs were had way too much mustard on them. Service was pretty good. The interior space was clean and you had a public bathroom which was great.

No trip downtown is complete without stopping here. This place is a Detroit original that keep people from my back for more. The Coney's are always delicious and hot. I always get the chili cheese fries. I love this place.

This place is what it is and you know that from the time you walk in. It has a fairly small menu but who cares when the CHILI is fantastic! The hot dog comes smothered in their signature chili, a dash of mustard and sprinkled with fresh onions. The service was immediate and in under 5 minutes I was enjoying... More
