What a bad place... but it's iconic for a true dining experience. Crazy pricey dogs at $2 each but the greasy floors and tables make up for the amazing people watching. Come here for a glorious fine dining romantic evening with your tinder date. Enjoy 😊

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. Sharon got a coney, a "loose" hamburger, and fries. The natural case hotdogs are wonderful and I enjoy every bite. Sharon did too. She had never had a "loose"... More
