Best Coney Island, Wayne County 

Lafayette Coney Island

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

One of the best hot dog spots in town, Lafayette's real charm lies in its character: food orders shouted into the steamy kitchen, the sound of plates rattling and the cast of characters strolling in at 2 a.m. Lafayette's plain coney dogs make a quality meal, boasting thick, meaty chili sauce, fresh onion and mustard, and only all-meat franks — not the filler-laden "hot dogs" common at lesser establishments.
