The Coney Island hot dog is not from New York. It was invented at the American Coney Island restaurant in Detroit, Michigan. This calorie-laden banquet consists of a beef hot dog, beanless chili, chopped onions and a perfectly placed stripe of yellow mustard. This is my wife being served at the original counter with a side of fries. Yum! This meal is wonderful yet messy, so a napkin is mandatory.
