A Coney Island Hot Dog (or Coney Dog or Coney) is a natural-casing beef hot dog, topped with a beef heart-based sauce, and diced or chopped white onions, with one or two stripes of yellow mustard. The variety is a fixture in Jackson, Flint,[2] Detroit, southeastern Michigan,[1] and Fort Wayne, Indiana.[3] A similar but distinct variety can be found in Cincinnati, Ohio known as a Cheese Coney.[4] A coney dog, with its beef heart-based sauce, is not to be confused with a chili dog, a more generic ground beef-based chili-topped hot dog.

Origin[edit]

The "Coney Island Hot Dog" preparation did not originate with Coney Island, New York; the name merely refers to the origin of the hot dog itself, and also refers to the kind of restaurant that features them. The style originated in the early 20th century in Michigan, with competing claims from American and Lafayette Coney Islands (1917) in Detroit, and Todoroff's Original Coney Island (1914) in Jackson.[1]
