“Simply The Best”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

There is no more classic restaurant in Detroit. Nothing like a Coney dog. Not much service, but a very fun place to go late at night when it is full of people who do not look like they usually go to a Coney place.

“Great Post Run Food!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We stopped by for lunch after running the Detroit Marathon/Half Marathon. Found a seat for the four of us with no problem and had coney dogs, fries, and Bud Lights. It was delicious! The service was friendly and the atmosphere was friendly too. Be prepared to bring cash, as it was a cash only establishment. Overall we were very satisfied and would not hesitate to stop by the next time we're in town.

“I kinda get it”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

So we were going to pass on this place but while exploring downtown we had to stop. No one in there and the shop next door was packed; This is a good place when you are drunk late and want a gut bomb to soak up food before you pass out and not spend much money. I felt the history and vibe, but will pass next time.

“Better choice”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Lafayette has the best coney dogs and fries. They're open late night and service is quick and food is inexpensive. Better than American Coney Island right next door.
