For two weeks, we’ll tale a look at coney islands known for their artwork. There are some great one. Does any art school offer a course in the coney masters?
Most are cheap and utilitarian, as befits the fare.
A few are works of art and cost the owners a lot of money, One such menu is at this restaurant. It features the State of Liberty holding a coney dog aloft The Liberty on the menu also holds a menu.
More than any other coney island in the Detroit area, this one plays the New York card.
There is a New York coney dog, a New York coney island deluxe, a New York kraut dog, a New York spicy red hot, a New York loose burger and a New York coney taco. All follow the standard style of local items, The deluxe is a coney dog with an additional loose beef topping. The coney taco is a hot dog bun with ground beef, coney topping, onions, mustard, cheese, lettuce, tomato and taco sauce.
The owner, Rob Quni, said he has been in this building since it was built in 1993 and that the place used to part of the now defunct Onassis Coney Island chain. Before it was at this location, the Onassis had been at Six Mile Road and Conner in Detroit.
Quni said his brother tried the coney business in Florida, but Floridians are not big on the concept and he now runs a Middle-eastern place called Honey Tree.
