Reviews for American Coney Island

Bought some coney dogs from American Coney Island today. They are still serving natural casing hot dogs. They are very difficult to bite & chew. Lafayette serves natural casing dogs also. I will avoid both coney islands in the future. The coneys are just too hard to eat!

Did Lafayette vs American vs duleys vs amar bs bills in yipsy today. Americans chili was underspiced and bland. The chili was burning hot but the hot dog itself was room temperature, BURNT and blackened, and crunchy, no snap at all just a dry burnt mess. The chili also had a weird soapy flavor that lingered for a while. There was almost no mustard compared to any of the other competitors we tried either. Only upside was the onions were nice and sweet.

Had to stop at the original Detroit dog place, come on! I come from Cincinnati so I was excited to compare the difference in coney dogs. Definitely worth the trek downtown. Staff was super friendly and food was tasty and quick. The cool building and location made it even better.
