On the same trip to Michigan my wife and I visited the American Coney Island, then immediately went to the Lafayette to try their fare. I ordered two coneys and fries.

Never the less, after standing in line for a half hour I finally had my hands on a coney from this Detroit staple.... More

Tried and true classic. I usually get a 2 on 1 - two Coney dogs on a plate. In my youth I could eat 5, but no longer. Goes well with beer or Coke (not diet)
