“Detroit original since 1917!”

The American Coney Island Hot Dog has been a favorite with Detroiters and visitors for nearly a century. The reasons for the great popularity of the American Coney Island is the high quality, specially-seasoned, natural skin casing hot dog from Dearborn Sausage and our own Keros family secret recipe Coney Island Chili Sauce developed decades ago. Add to that a topping of fine mustard and sweet chopped onions that is the final touch to the distinctive overall taste and flavor of the American Coney Island Hot Dog. Served in a warm steamed bun, it's no wonder the American Coney Island Hot Dog has been such a tantalizing treat that's still hard to beat after all these years! Featured on Food Wars, Man vs. Food, and Food Paradise!

Have stopped in here for lunch a couple of times now while in Detroit. It's ok (a cheap hot dog and bun with some meaty sludge on it) but I guess Coney Islands are one of those regional things like Cincinnati Chili, that I'll never understand, or particularly enjoy myself. BUT, with that said I do love that these things exist, and I love how retro and all-American this place is, so I would still say it's well worth a stop on your visit to Detroit!

There is a very strong rivalry between the two coney island restaurants here as they are literally right beside each other! I have only been to the one on the corner but I have heard that the other one is better! Try them both and be the judge yourself but either way its going to be a classic american hot dog!

Great atmosphere and vibe. Dropped in for lunch and the staff was extremely friendly, especially when they heard we were from Cincinnati. The food was quick and delicious! Highly recommend checking this place out!
