Best Coney Island in Wayne County 

Lafayette Coney Island; 118 W. Lafayette Blvd., Detroit; 313-964-8198

You don’t do 90 years in the diner business by cutting corners. Lafayette strives to hold the line on quality. For instance, at many coneys, chili cheese fries come with iridescent liquid cheese. Lafayette heaps on real shredded cheese, which melts from the heat of the freshly fried fries in the proper poutine-like fashion. Plus it’s just about the quaintest place in town at 2 a.m., with people rubbing elbows who’d seldom meet by day. We love best of all how the waitstaff shouts your order from the front of the restaurant to the kitchen; it’s a nice touch that recalls the old days.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
