  • EaterServing up their own version of the Detroit coney dog, this diner has its own loyal following of die hard fans, and it is definitely 100% Detroit. [Eater 38 Member]

  • HectorIt's easy to get a Coney Hot Dog and fries for under $5. The hot dogs are very crunchy. Try the Greek Salad (with Pita). Prices are cheap and there's a nice atmosphere.

  • Rachel P.American is the best! So is Dan Dan the hot dog man!

  • Jake S.Unless you really like Mexican-style cheese on your dog, do not ask for cheese. I thought I was getting some sort of liquid cheese, and ended up with what looked like a taco. Good dog though.

  • Walter H.Out of the two places this is my preference. Dog is cooked perfectly and has a great snap as you bite. Chili is perfectly spicy. And for $2.50 awesomeness. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
