If you’re a Detroiter, you should probably stop reading now. You’ve likely already done the “Detroit Coney Dog Challenge,” and have strong opinions of your own as to which dog rules. I don’t want you getting all Snarky McSnarkerson on me for this long-overdue life adventure.
If you’re NOT a Detroiter, remember when I told you that the first food experience you should have when you visit is a chicken shawarma? I stand by that commandment, but I think the second thing you should do is the Lafayette vs. American Coney Island Challenge. Mind you, I’ve lived in Michigan all of my life, and have lived six blocks from Detroit for the last five years, but I hadn’t even done this until a few weeks ago.
