Using a pillowy bun as a barrier, hot dogs are safely protected from environmental hazards such as open manholes and greasy-handed mechanics. Enjoy snugly shielded franks with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of hot dogs, snacks, and drink at Motor City Coney Island in Stone Mountain.
Cooks at Motor City Coney Island smother signature hot dogs and fries in chili direct from Michigan, extending the boardwalk onto a hearty menu of Detroit-style fare. An avalanche of savory chili buries a hot dog and liberal sprinkling of ground beef on the Coney Special, with the precipice sprinkled with mustard and chopped onions ($3.59). Flex fingers around the patty melt's twin slices of rye bread, which hide a meaty core coated with american cheese, swiss cheese, and a crown of browned onions ($4.99). Golden onion rings beckon fingers with false promises of never-ending batter ($2.99); sides of fries come either bare ($1.79) or blanketed in gooey quilts of cheese and chili ($3.49). Wings court taste bud favor with one of five saucy suitors, including barbecue's rich flavor, lemon pepper's spicy sweetness, and teriyaki's love of writing haikus ($4.99 for eight).
High-top tables and modest booths moor between azure walls and tangerine arches that divide the dining room; colorful, kid-friendly beverages perch on a stone tiki counter at one end. From the portico's shady outdoor seating, diners can enjoy their meals and flaunt their selections to passing robins raised on sparse diets of birdseed and stale bread.
