Coney: The Hot Dog That Fed Detroit's American Dream

Take a hot dog from New York's Coney Island, throw in plenty of Greek immigrants and a booming auto industry, add some chili sauce, a steamed bun, chopped onions, mustard and an epic sibling rivalry and you've got the makings of a classic American melting pot story.

The American Coney Island Hot Dog has been a favorite with Detroiters and visitors for nearly a century. The reasons for the great popularity of the Amercan Coney Island is its high quality, specially-seasoned, natural skin casing hot dog from Dearborn Sausage and the Keros family's own secret recipe Coney Island Chili Sauce developed decades ago. Add to that a topping of fine mustard and sweet chopped onions.
