Believe it or not, if I was blind tasting, I might possibly like the taste itself of the coney's at American better than Lafayette, but its shiny plastic interior is a real turn off. I take my coney to go.

Coney's are great, the service was great, food was served fast and piping hot. Prices were good too. We ate here after a Tigers game and we were able to find a table right away. We will be back.

The best lunch service, friendly staff, great food. Don't miss out on stopping here when you visit downtown Detroit.

The quality of a visit here is not the food. It's the fabulous staff, the tradition, and the atmosphere. When I'm in Detroit I will eat like a Michigander once per trip. Coneys and a Vernors.

I just googled that question and Detroit is correct but you should google for yourself and read all the history.
