Want to start a debate in Detroit?


Just ask who makes the best coney.

American or Lafayette?

My 6-year-old son enjoyed his first trip to Detroit last week.

He saw some cool cars during the Woodward Dream Cruise, a Detroit Tigers victory, and had his first taste of American and Lafayette coneys.

The debate over who makes a better coney, American or Lafayette, is years old. The debate has been featured on Food Network, Travel Channel, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and more. You can get the full history lesson here.

I have long been a Lafayette guy, although I will admit that last weekend American tasted a lot better than I remembered. Still, I'm sticking with Lafayette.

See if my taste buds run in the family.
