Reviews for Lafayette Coney Island

Hands down the best coney dog, and coney experience in the United States. You haven't actually had a coney until you've had a "2 on 1 chili chee fry"... 2 coney dogs on 1 plate with a chili cheese fry. There are obviously coney island restaurants all over Michigan, but you are missing the essence of the tradition if you don't come here and come here often.

Please do not let the tiny interior scare you away from this Detroit staple. The food and service are TOP NOTCH! This is a classic “wet” coney dog, with a soft bun, hot dog with a perfect snap, and just enough onions and sauce. When you look up a coney dog in the dictionary, this is what you would see (if they still made dictionaries). If you are downtown, make sure you stop in! The friendly team here will make it worth your while (and you’ll be fed in five minutes to boot!).
Customer service was great in and out in 5 min place was packed with covid procedures in place. Only downfall was whennthe cashier stuck bare hands on my dog pre covid days in Detroit , ehh tradition ok. Currently ehhh sir thats a no-no!!! So star gone for that.Please note very nice about the remake and placed gloves and apologized, but sir we've been in covid for a year now.Price was same as next door (which, yes! im doing a taste comparison!)No seasoning on fries (maybe full review
