Best Coneys in Bay City and a pretty good Breakfast too...

I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner and all have been very good. Western omelet for breakfast with well-cooked American fries. Lunch was their famous Detroit style Coney dogs (99 cents on Tuesdays at the moment) I had a perch dinner on a Friday with light batter and a ton of perch. Prices are... read more

I met family here for breakfast. All three of us had omelettes. They were OK. Two of us ordered western omelettes with cheddar cheese. This somehow turned into omelettes without cheese and american cheese on our potatoes instead. Suboptimal at best. I had what they were calling american fries on the side. They tasted like stale potatoes that had been... More

When they first opened i thought the food was great! My fave was the downtowner. Corned beef with slaw. My husband loved the coneys. Stopped for lunch today. One word- gross. Nothing, and I mean nothing was hot. I ordered a small biscuit and gravy (breakfast served all day) for my one year old daughter, let's just say it was... More

The service was nice, food was good, value was good. Turkey sauage not so good. You do get a large portion for your money. I can see this being a regular stop for locals for breakfast.

Order came after about 10 minutes. Wifes French toast was barely warm. my breakfast came but they forgot the toast. Onion rings came but only warm. Forgot the... More

Great food, good service. Food was homemade from scratch. Hashbrowns made fresh there every morning not frozen in a bag. Service is great with wonderful staff.

For over 10 years now I've been trying to find a place that has great gyros and chili cheese fries. The kind I miss from my youth. I've only ever gotten this when visiting a Coney Island in Detroit and nothing else compares. Now there is ONE and only ONE place in the Tri Cities that has all the things... More

I have eaten here many times but yesterday I went with the daily special for 7.99$ (chicken and ribs) it was great. I love there coney dogs too . The service is a little rough. It is run by a family who fears teaching their employees how to run the cash register. Its family owned so its unique every time... More

Went with a brother, the food was good and the service good. One issue, as I walked in I could smell an odor, my brother could not. It was strong to the right as you came in the door the farther left it went away. It was like a, sorry to say, urinal cake smell. By the end of the... More
