In search of a Coney Island hot dog taste-a-like on the West Coast, continuous disappointment drove a group of hungry, Coney dog fiend-ing ex-Detroiters to bring their treasured, childhood staple to L.A. (In case you haven't figured it out, Coney Dogs are a beloved mainstay in Michigan and especially the Detroit area.)
Coney Dog opens today on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood and we'll be frank: these people are serious about their chili dogs. Steamed buns, anyone? Customers will be relieved to know that what makes up these dogs is no mystery. 80% pure ground beef and 20% pork, the Coney dogs contain no added fats, parts, fillers or thickeners. The chili is custom made and shipped from Detroit unless you prefer vegetarian which is homemade daily.
