Detroit Dogs

Take a Michigander at Post Alley Pizza's new wiener.

What can properly be called a "Coney" is one of America's great culinary conundrums. On the one hand, we've got Coney Island, where hot dogs can, of course, be purchased. But diehard tube steak enthusiasts know that true Coneys come not from Brooklyn, but from Detroit, where Greek immigrants opened restaurants like Leo's Coney Island and began slinging wieners alongside gyros. A Detroit Coney is like a chili dog, except that the Coney dog's meaty chili is beanless and heavy on the cumin (similar to the signature dish at Mike's Chili Parlor, owned and operated since birth by the very Greek Semandiris family). Anyhow, the real point of this post is to inform everyone that Post Alley Pizza now serves Coneys, and credits their Detroit origin properly to boot. Yummo!
