I was glad to find this place on the road as I was headed home from a business trip. A co-worker told me that I needed to try coney's while in the Detroit area, but unfortunately there weren't any coney restaurants nearby. I had the New Yorker, which is sauerkraut and mustard. The fries were good as well. It hit... More

I recently ate breakfast here and was delighted with my omelette selection - feta, bacon, and spinach. I chose the make your own 3 item omelette which was cooked perfectly as were the country fries - larger fried potatoes, not the hash brown style. The potatoes were not greasy and crisp on the outside. Only one thing would have made... More

The food was great tasting, filling, and reasonably priced. I had to avoid greasy foods following outpatient surgery and that is tough to find at most Coney's but the lite bite with grilled chicken more than fit and the chicken was tasty (I am picky on such, so that is saying something indeed)

This is one of those Greek-owned American restaurants that feature a general menu plus specialties such as Greek salads and baklava. They do it very well - offering homemade soups and other specials every day. The coney dogs are great - and so are the soups. This is a terrific stop off I-94.

The best breakfast food i have had in a while. It beats the nearest hotel food. The only issue was waiting for a seat, the place is packed.

For the first time, four of us stopped at Uptown Coney Island in Chelsea, MI on Sept 1. We ordered our four coneys to go at the cash register. I had a coney with bacon and cheese for $3.49. 3 other options were $3.49. The original was $2.99. The decor was eclectic cookware and dishes on the walls. The base... More

Looks a little tired on the outside, to be fair not much difference on the inside. But the service is fast and efficient. Food is plentiful and good. Prices are low. If you're looking for high end dining - this isn't it. But if you want down home food - stop by.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Monday morning based on the good reviews. I do not understand all the great reviews. First, the place was filthy - dirty tables everywhere. No greeting, just a sign saying seat yourself. Sat down and waitress took drink order and never returned. We sat and sat and sat. The people across from us... More

Stopped in for breakfast. I had never been to this restaurant before. Service was fast and excellent. I order the Ultimate Omelet. It arrived fast and was very hot when it arrived. It was OK but I have had better. To be fair, this place was packed. I picked this restaurant because the parking lot was full. I would try... More
