Lafayette Coney Island

Coney Islands are a way of life in Detroit and while the city has gone through a lot of changes over the years, Lafayette Coney Island remains one of the few constants. It’s a downtown dive institution that serves the best Detroit-style coney dogs in the world. “One up with everything” is the basic order, which is a hot dog with chili, onions, and mustard on a bun. But one coney dog isn’t enough, so your standard order is two up with everything, chili cheese fries, and a cold beer. Don’t be shy if you need a third coney, or consider ordering a slice of their sneaky good pie.
