Coney Island hot dog

Coney Island hot dog (also Coney dog or Coney) refers to a natural casing beef hot dog, topped with an all-meat beanless chili, and diced or chopped white onions with one or two strips of yellow mustard. The variety is a fixture in Jackson, Flint,[1] Detroit, and southeastern Michigan.[2] A Coney Dog is not to be confused with a Chili Dog, a more generic name for a chili-topped hot dog.

Origin

Despite the name, the "Coney Island" preparation style has little direct association with Coney Island, New York itself, beyond a recognition of the birthplace of the original hot dog. Except for beginning in Michigan, who originated the The Coney Island Dog is in dispute with American and Lafayette Coney Islands, Detroit, Michigan and Todoroff's Original Coney Island, Jackson, Michigan all claiming to be the first.[2]

Local varieties

  • Detroit Style

The Detroit style coney is more of a sauce with a smooth, creamy consistency utilizing Hungarian spices.

  • Flint Style

Flint style Coneys are closely related to the Jackson style hot dog, and are characterized by a dry chili more similar in consistency to ground beef than chili. Many in Michigan make the claim that in order to be an "authentic" Flint Coney, the hot dog must be a Koegel and the sauce by Abbott's Meat.[1][3]

In Cincinnati, the "cheese Coney" is a variation of the Coney Island hot dog topped with the city's unique style of chili, onions, and shredded cheese which nearly hide the wiener, which is smaller in size than the typical Detroit-style Coney dog. Its popularity makes Cincinnati nearly synonymous with cheese Coneys; outside of Cincinnati, the topping is referred to "Cincinnati style chili," whereas within the city it is simply known as "chili" from the many neighborhood franchises started by Greek immigrants.[4]
