Yes, that right. The best. Others are good. This is the best. Coney's and the atmosphere are unlike anything else you would do. A great spot after a Detroit Tigers baseball game or a Red Wings hockey game. Or, any other time you might try. NOT FANCY!!! Just plain good. And the cool factor is off the charts.

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.

So a few friends and I stopped by Lafayette after a good night of drinking in Detroit only to find this place was open but you could only order your food to go? What's that all about? 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)
