Coney Island in New York is renowned for its hot dogs, but did you know that at the turn of the last century, a migration of immigrants brought those famous hot dogs to Detroit. Since then, they've become one of Detroiter's most beloved dishes! Another favorite coney menu item is an evolution of the Coney Dog, the Loose Meat Coney! You wont find a Coney diner in Southeast Michigan that doesn't serve these delicious sandwiches! Seasoned loose meat hamburger served up in a steamed hot dog bun and topped with that signiture Detroit coney sauce, mustard and diced onions! Mmmmmm, so good!!!
