This spring and summer, Patch is going all out coney. In addition to stories and contests, we'll be featuring great events around Metro Detroit, including a bus tour May 12 of some of the area's best coney island restaurants.

"These are hot dogs straight from Detroit. The chili is also from Detroit," Nick Vlassopoulos said from behind the counter, pointing to a natural casing hot dog made from beef, topped with an all-meat beanless chili and diced onions. "After two or three of these, you'll still feel great — maybe one burp." Read more about the restaurant, which includes – in perfect California fashion – a vegetarian Coney, here. What do you think about that, Metro Detroit? We're not sure that would fly at Lafayette or American.
