Lafayette or American? Detroit's Coney Dogs

No visit to Detroit is complete without eating a coney dog from either Lafayette or American which sit side-by-side sandwiched between Lafayette and Michigan Avenue, a stone's throw from Campus Martius. Smothered in chili sauce, covered in onions and slathered with mustard--that's the way most people eat them. Opened as one by the Greek (of course) Keros brothers in 1917, they soon split due to differences of opinion. Lafayette is still owned by the Keros descendants.
