Delicious!

We used to go to Lafayette Coney Island all the time when I was young, but I hadn't been for many years. We were there right before a Detroit Tigers game, so the place was busy, but efficient. I ordered a coney dog, fries and coke...why change a good thing!? The service was prompt and friendly, the... read more

It may not be the fanciest eatery you will ever enter but I can guarantee the Coney's are the best, bar none. I have had my monthly fix of Coney's here more than anywhere else even though it is an 85 mile round trip. I enjoy the quirky atmosphere and all the people that come through the door. Come and...

Awesome coney dogs. Much better than American Coney Island in my opinion. It's always packed late night, but worth the wait and moves quickly.

I stopped in before the hoedown on Saturday, and because I heard it was on the "travel channel" but to say the least I was disappointed. It was very dirty, bathroom doors did not lock, I sat for about 7 minutes before even being spoken too. Not to mention they brought us out A LOT of extra food we did... More

Great hotdogs! Get a chili dog or two just because they are great. And if I'm not mistaken, they make their own casing. Delectably gross.

The coneys at this location are still as good as they were 30 years ago. It seems that a new generation of family members is taking over both stores and the service is a bit different. Not as fun of an experience as in past years.

Forget about Coney Island here in Detroit we have the real deal. The bun, the dog, the fresh topping, the onions (optional), the mustard. I get hungry just thinking about it.
