Chick Inn Drive-In 
    501 Holmes Rd., Ypsilanti; 734-483-3639
    The 1950s-era Ypsilanti drive-in chicken shack is a pink neon-clad icon that greets those entering Ypsilanti along Prospect road with a squawking chicken head. The menu isn’t totally chicken-centric as one would expect, as it offers a wide selection of traditional and not-so-traditional drive-in fare like foot-longs, coney dogs, patty melts, sweet potato fries, seafood, and plenty of fried finger foods. The price is right, as most sandwiches are around $5.

 Coney Dogs 
    Don’t you dare call it a chili dog. You know damn well that a coney dog is on a whole other level and only a city as unique as Detroit is worthy of being the birthplace of this holy concoction which consists of five simple ingredients —  a piping hot frankfurter, a fluffy steamed bun, beanless beef-heart chili, chopped white onions, and yellow mustard. Detroit knows how to coney so well that we have our own local rivalries (American vs. Lafayette.)
