The food was excellent. This is a true Coney Island a little grimy and greasy. We ate at the counter and the food came right to us and the portions were huge. An experience.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on Saturday. My husband used to eat here when it was owned by Dave. We found out while waiting for our food that Dave no longer owns this Coney. We noticed that the cleanliness was lacking. I saw shoes on a shelf with food items through the open kitchen door. The floor... More

A small Coney joint with a good Coney dog that would rival those in Detroit. Also they serve a mean breakfast.

My wife and I stopped in for coney dogs. Two each with everything for a late lunch about a half hour before their afternoon closing.

Not great either! Nothing special here, unless you're in the mood for eggs or an omelet.. the place is very small so you might want to arrive early

Had breakfast here over the weekend and it was very good. Smaller portions than some coney places but still very good food. Service was fast and friendly. Their booths are definitely smaller than most restaurants but they do offer a few tables and counter service is available.

The food for the most part is pretty much typical coney island menu with one huge exception. Their sausage gravy and biscuits is like no other I have had ANYWHERE, even in the south where they are know for it. A little spicey but truly one of a kind!

I've driven past this place a million times. Last week we went in for breakfast and I had one of the best omelette's I've had in a long time. The sausage gravy that they make is outstanding!

This place has been around for decades and is the true local place to go if you want a coney or omelet. Chains come and go. This place is an institution in White Lake.
