This restaurant features the flavorful chili served only in the Detroit area. The chili is called "Coney Island" for no apparent reason. Nathan's at Coney Island originated the hot dog and served it with sauerkraut. No chili. Go figure. None the same, it is a Detroit area treat. There is a complete menu with Gyros and other Greek specialties, as... More

I found myself being a bachelor for a few days, so I decided to visit the Senate Coney Island in Taylor, Michigan for lunch. They have a rather extensive menu but I ordered the traditional coney Island with everything on top along with a half order of french fries. (My wife would be proud of me) The regular dog, not...

I have gone here for lunch a few times, and wasn't terribly impressed. The chili they use, though, i must admit is very good. The service was lacking, and the restaurant is too huge for it's own good.

When I visit my parents who live in Taylor, it is a must that we go here for breakfast each morning. Walter and his girls cook up some good food at really reasonable prices. It is not a very big place so it is really cozy. For those who remember Taylor Town, this is where the old Sanders use to... More

i just love the chile fries here! The wait staff is really friendly and speedy. There's always a table and never a very long wait. It's just a few blocks from the house.

Best coney island around. Also good gyro and the rice pudding is one of a kind. Atmosphere ...well there is no atmosphere to speak of, but good food.

We were in between the breakfast and lunch crowds so the place was virtually empty. You'd think service would be great but the opposite was true. We were promptly met by our server which was a good start. Coffee came quickly as well as the food. But then it was like we were forgotten. She never came back to see... More

Living in Florida means no coney island hot dogs so when we visit Detroit, Senates is the first stop every single time. i grew up eating them and at 58 years old I am still addicted. This location is one of their oldest and I enjoy the atmosphere. The owner George has worked extremely hard for many years making it... More
