American Coney Island is located right next store to Lafayette but it doesn’t stop them from doing plenty of business. The American Coney Island hasn’t changed much in the 87 years it’s been cooking up some of Detroit’s favorite coney dogs. Family owned and operated, it’s no wonder that the recipes of their ancestors have been perfected here and served along side the highest quality Dearborn Sausage brand links.

Bill’s Drive-In

Bill’s Drive-In on Facebook

Bill’s Drive-in has been a tradition in Ypsilanti since the 1960’s and for a good reason. It’s uncomplicated American food at it’s finest. No hamburgers or fries here.  The dog has options of chili, mustard and onions. The only side is a bag of Ruffles potato chips … *scoffs* as if you needed something else. Bonus! Their specialty is homeade rootbeer. At around $2 for a coney and a glass of rootbeer it’s an outstanding value.
