Only place I visit if I want a true Detroit Coney Experience. I will typically always hit American next door just to say I covered my bases but the true old school of Lafayette wins time and time again.

It is a must go at the end of the night. We always look forward to dinning with friends after a night of fun in the "D"! Fun, friendly atmosphere and great food. They are great at accommodating larger groups.

This place is a legacy, apparantly, in Detroit. The place was so busy. But in a good way. Took the attention off the food. There were many servers and the service is quick. You come. You eat. You go.

We always sneak out for a Lafayette Coney when at the Detroit auto show. The food is good. The service prompt and the price, reasonable. If you are lucky, you will see some Detroit celebs too

Best Coney dogs in the Midwest. You haven’t been to Detroit until you’ve been here. Their dogs have just the right snap in their natural casings and the chili is to die for. The washrooms are an adventure in themselves. (A bad one) It’s the...More

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