Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed schoolchildren. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of chili dogs and more at Detroit Coney Island, located on Winchester Road.
Named for its Michigan-style hot dogs, Detroit Coney Island combines Motown flavors with juicy meats to offer a menu stocked with burger-stand mainstays. The stand’s namesake Coney Dogs ($2.29) harness the tastes of the Motor City with grilled frankfurters slathered in meaty chili, smothered in onions, and served with the lyrics to a Smokey Robinson song written in mustard. Detroit Coney Island also grills an array of burgers ($3.99+) and other bun-filling bites, with the giant fish sandwich ($5.99, $7.99 combo) satiating marine-loving stomachs with a pound of fried Alaskan pollock between two toasted buns. Diners can finish off hunger with one of Detroit Coney Island’s lip-smacking desserts, including root-beer floats, chewy brownies ($1.59), banana cream cake ($2.99), or baklava ($1.59).
