Seen them on the Food shows and had the opportunity to finally stop in. Great food and quick service, no frills which actually has its own charm. I eat at many coneys since I live in Detroit area and theses coneys were by far the best!

For those of you have no idea of what the title means, here's some advice. First, this is not health food. Second, this is an institution, hallowed ground if you will.
