We went for lunch Sat 3/3. It was busy, service was fine. I ordered the greek chicken salad with pita. Salad was pre-made with a cold pita on the side. Nothing special. They guys ordered coneys, think they were fine.

This place is a classic. Coming to Detroit without visiting Lafayette would be like visiting New York City and not seeing the Statue of Liberty. Simply the best!

The Coneys are pretty standard Chili Cheese Dogs. If all your ingredients, you should do just fine!
