The family that lays claim to inventing the Coney dog will open its first stand outside of Detroit in downtown Las Vegas.
The oldest family owned business in Detroit, American Coney Island has been featured on the Today Show, Iron Chef Michael Symon’s “Food Feuds” on the Food Network and the Travel Channel’s “Food Wars.” Grace Keros is the third-generation owner.
American Coney Island is part of the property renovation of the D, formerly Fitzgeralds. New room makeovers are set to be unveiled next week.
