The American Coney Island Hot Dog has been a favorite
with Detroiters and visitors for nearly a century. As Detroiters
have moved to other parts of the country, and as visitors have returned
to their respective states, the American's reputation has spread
throughout the country. Over the years, American has received
countless requests from people who wanted to have the Coney Islands
shipped to them - either for their own restaurants, their own consumption
or for parties or special events.
One of the most-frequently-mentioned comments that
former Detroiters who have moved out-of-town say is: one of the
things they miss most about Detroit is Coney Islands from the American
Coney Island downtown on Lafayette Street!
One of the reasons for the great popularity of the
American's Coney Islands is the high-quality, specially-seasoned,
natural casing hot dogs that have always been served at the American.
Another reason is the Coney Island chili sauce which is specially
prepared using a secret recipe the Keros' developed decades ago.
And, of course, the topping of fine mustard and fresh, chopped sweet
onions adds the final touch to the distinctive overall taste and
flavor of the Coney Island hot dog which is served in a warm, steamed
bun. No wonder the American Coney Island hot dog has been such a
tantalizing treat to the palate that's still hard to beat after
all these years!
