I had the coney dog with everything on it (chili, onion & mustard). It was decent. Nothing special. On the other hand, The chili cheese fries were really good! And worth the trip here!

I love this place! It's my favorite Coney Island. Whenever I get the chance to come downtown, I always stop here. Service is good and fast.

The best coney experience in town. The locals all know that this is better than the other fast casual type of coney places. These guys are fun to watch and somehow remember your order when you say one more please.

Been coming here for 30 years and they haven't remodeled yet. That is the beauty of it. Get a famous Detroit Coney Island from the best.
