Ding ding ding....Ladies and gentlemen we have a unanimous decision the worlds greatest hamburger! The service was outstanding!
I rarely write reviews so when I do they're usually because an establishment truly deserves it and this is the case with Detroit Coney Grill. I've only been here around 4-6 times but every time I do visit I get a friendly smile and get asked how my meal was. This type of service is not very common in your typical dine in take out hamburger/ dog joints. And I can honestly say in my 30 some years of eating hamburgers this is by far the best burger in AZ! More...
Wow, what a great place. I am a big fan of the Coney dogs here. The coney has a satisfying snap when you bite into it. The chili is excellent, but my favorite is the Coney fries. My colleagues tried the burgers and claimed they are the best they had in some time. I am so surprised by the food and the staff here. I will be back again. More...
My husband and I loved it. He got a double cheeseburger and I got a chili dog, with hand cut fries. It was excellent. We will definitely be eating there again.
Second time here and it us just as good as the first time, DELISH! Friendliest people in the world, even the cook came to check on us. I will be back and bring friends!
This was like taking a long trip back to the Mitten state and sitting down with family for a wonderful meal together.
Wow! My honey comes here every week and finally brought us. I've never been to Detroit and never had a coney, but if the beautiful feast of chili, mustard and onions placed before me was any indication of what I was missing, I may have to plan a trip soon! Owner/manager was constantly working, circulating, checking in with tables - it's definitely an neighborhood hangout. So many people greeted by name. They also have amazing looking Burgers (smashed on the grill) and pitas. Btw, chili cheese fries are amazing too! Come by and make yourself happy! More...
Burgers are always good. Messed up my last order but the owner was super nice, and corrected it.
Fantastic burgers and service as well. Will definitely come back. Not sure why I've missed this place on my radar after so many years in Phoenix--but cheers grateful I know it now. Pinned the board!
From Warren Michigan and love to come here and get Faygo and better made chips. Yummy food, and fast! I'm able to come here on my lunch break with colleagues and all get our food quickly. Monday special is coney dog, chili cheese fries and a drink and I couldn't eat it all it was too much food. More...
Best coney dog in the area! Family owned, great people all the time. Highly recommend that everyone come and check it out!
First time here. I had to double fist with the Detroit Coney Combo and Green Chile Burger. The snap of the Coney was perfect. The Hatch Chiles were perfect - spicy. The only disappointing thing was the fact it all had to come to an end. I got full. Great place for the America's Burger Club. #dukeofeats More...
Great Food! Great owner! He really cares about the quality of every burger and is very social with his customers in a good way!
What a great find!! Being from The Detroit area it's nice to have a little slice of home!! I And if the original Coney dogs and they were spectacular! They even had Better Made potato chips!! More...
As a recent native Detroiter living in Casa Grande, miss a lot of things, but especially Lafayette Coney Island. Recently discovered this place & made the drive out to Tempe. Love it! The service is fabulous & friendly. We got traditional coneys & a couple loose burgers, fries. Absolutely like back in the D. The owner came out & checked on us. Definitely will be back. Gonna make room for the burgers next time! More...
An amazing lunch. We don't get up to Phoenix very often, but we get to Detroit less. Bless those boys. Yes, I'm stuck in 1984. Cya next trip. Much love from the border. More...
The place is not much to look at but I did like the hot dogs. The prices are good. As a native Michigander I enjoyed the nostalgia of this place. I will be back!
Found this place by accident. I got a Chicago dog and it was fabulous. The dog had a snap to it that I haven't been able to find anywhere else. Can't say anything about their other food because I haven't tried anything else but for me the dogs are the best More...
This is my second visit to Detroit Coney Grill, they have the best coneys in Arizona. Hey, if you post a review and show them you get 10% off.
This place is always on it. Wish it wasn't in Tempe but it's not their fault I live a ways away. Just writing this makes me want a coney and them awesome fries. Oh and that quint. Immediately regretted splitting one with my kid cuz I wanted the whole thing. So good. Thanks More...
This place is great. It tastes amazing and it's all handmade!Recomends: Detroit coney
Awesome coneys. Will be back in two weeks.
Best bacon cheeseburger iv had in a very long time
Really enjoyed this place! I ordered the Detroit Coney and Buffalo Fries. It was sloppy and tasty, everything you'd expect! You get a good amount of food for what you pay for, would recommend!! More...
Best Hanis!! try their sodas too!
The only thing better than the food here is the service. Everyone who walks through the door is treated like family. The owner here truly cares about his customers. Hands down the best coneys in town. Dogs have that perfect snap to them and the chili here is perfect. Burgers, chili cheese fries or tots are so good. Just go try everything in the menu, you wont be disappointed! More...
Good service and great food! I'll definitely be back! I had the coney dog and homemade fries and both were delicious!
A nice slice of heaven. In the valley of the sun
This place is amazing! Best burger I’ve ever had. The owner was there and was in the trenches with his staff! Love the atmosphere and it was really dope to see how he connected with the customers and everyone was treated like family. I highly recommend this place if you want a burger so good it’ll make you slap yo mama More...
Our first experience was a great one!The food is delicious and responsibly priced! If you go you must try the
Hard to find a good loose burger in Phoenix. Detroit Coney has a great loose burger! Great food, fast service.
Food was pretty good. The service was fast, we didn't wait long. Only thing is the portions could've been a bit bigger.
Great little shop to stop in and grab a bite to eat, whether you're into burgers or hot dogs they have it all. They have on tap soda as well as faygo and other glassed sodas. Like most places down town they are open limited hours so that's always a bummer but good food and super friendly place More...
Friendly service, great displays, relaxing atmosphere. Makes for an awesome lunch and experience. My fiancé live in Washington State, and so wish that there was one of these eateries located near us.

reminds me of being back home in Michigan!
I was born and raised in Metro-Detroit and ate at National Coney Island all the time. This is by far the best I've had. I have been here twice and I will be back again. My first trip I got the Monday special and loved everything about. The food and the service was amazing. My second trip was a bit different. The service was very rushed and to the point. I ordered the Thursday special, the Coney Combo. This time it was very dry. I noticed that dry ground beef went in my coney before the chili was added. I am not sure if this is what I order but it's not what I wanted. The dog was very dry and the added ground beef took away the the meal. Next time I will make sure to avoid the added ground beef. Also, avoid the cheese fries. The cheese has no flavor. You're better off with the chili fries. Faygo Soda all the way!!! I like Red Pop and Rock-n-Rye. More...
Damn this is the best burger I've had. The beef is grounded daily and has great flavor. I know it's a Coney place but I prefer the burgers over the hot dogs.
We were over this way tonight and had a little spare time. So, decide to try something new. Well, we picked a winner!Definitely not the place to go for a good Dieter. They have some amazing salad options and some non-meat options, but who can resist?I have the Detroit Coney combo. Delicious hot dog covered in chili and loose hamburger meat onions and mustard. Add to that some deliciously hot fries and a cold cola. Mom had a Philly cheese steak pita. I got a taste of it and it was amazing. Warning for all those sensitive people, it's a bit spicy. I think it might have contained some green chiles or some jalapenos. We should have read the menu better. Either way, it was delicious. I'm definitely going to get a cheesesteak next time around. And maybe some chili cheese fries!The place looked exceptionally clean. They have a window up so you can view the entire kitchen. People behind the counter we're exceptionally kind and worked fast. You can't go wrong with this place.Take your time and look at the menu over first. There are a lot of really good options. I hear the Greek salad is pretty good. Maybe I should try that instead of fries... More...
Love it!!!! Busy place but well worth it. Not too much seating but most people are here for a quick lunch and leave. Some limited seating outside. It was a beautiful spring day so we sat outside and it was awesome. More...
Burgers are amazing! Food is always fast and the owner is fantastic. The tater tots are crispy on the outside. Highly recommend this place!
Cozy little place was GREAT prices. 4.95 cheeseburger. They offer double triple, quad and quint (5 patties) if you want to eat the whole cow.Corned beef ruben was 10.99 special with drink and fries. It was excellent, tender and juicy. Served piping hot on this cold 40 rainy winter day.5 stars for service. The owner is behind the register ensuring everything is right. Even back kitchen staff that came to wipe tables asked if I needed extra napkins and if everything was good. It is great. Thanks Detroit Coney. Great service and great meal. More...
OMFG you will love this place. If you are from Michigan - you are going to want to move in because Dave has made a second home for you in Tempe, AZ. It is one of those places where it feels like everyone knows each other but they don't. It is just a bunch of loud mouth people bullshitting over awesome food. I forgot to mention the food rocks at this place. More...
Yesterday I walked in and ordered the Green Chile Burger with fries and a drink. Fantastic! I love green chiles, and the burger was soooo good. The fries were perfectly salted and wonderful also. Highly recommend. More...
Apparently Detroit Coney Grill is well known by locals in the downtown area for having amazing burgers. Had no clue. This little nugget of information was given to me moments before I placed my order. I literally thought to myself, "Mkay, we'll see..." and I saw, and was not disappointed. To get in front of some other comments I read about this place, it's independently owned and on the divey side as far as aesthetic's go. There are no fancy table clothed tables, no one comes to your table to grab your drink order, no newspaper to read or television to catch up on your local news. Can't say that I expected any of those things at a burger and hot dog joint, but in case you were, this is not that place. To anyone who's ever experienced the blander side of midwestern food, that is definitely not the case here. The burger I was served, had fresh ingredients and the burger patty was cooked to perfection, full of the flavor. The customer service I experienced was far beyond anything I expected. It really felt as though everyone working there really enjoyed their jobs and serving their customers. The woman who initially took my order was helpful in explaining the menu and a cheerleader for this place, confidently informing us that we'd be back after we'd tasted our first ever order. She's right, we will. More...
On a visit, after being disappointed with the food offerings in Phoenix, this was a wonderful discovery! The employees were super nice and the older guy (owner?) was carefully explaining how to keep everything spotless. Then I got the food. Fries were hot and crispy, but the burger surpassed them. This is a delicious, melt in your mouth, burger. Even the bun just blends together nicely with the meat. Great place! I just wish I went here on my first day so I could revisit. More...
Great burgers, fries and authentic Coney dogs! Staff and owner always friendly and helpful!
First and foremost, this review is not a slam on this establishment. It's only my opinion about it.....Let start off by indicating that I'm an native Detroiter, midwestern guy, quality food runs in my blood and when you think of coney Island, Detroit is the Capital of it.From American or Layfette Coney Island in Downtown Detroit or Oscar's Coney on the Eastside and westside. L'Georges in Dearborn, there are plethora of coney island that serve authentic food, and Gyros.With that being said, this place is a close substitute for Arizona, not original as it would cost too much to get the quality items needed (outside the Faygo's & Vernors) to make it as close to an Detroit Coney Island as possible. I can confirm that the beef dogs for the coney are from Dearborn Meat distributor that supply most of the coney islands in the City of Detroit.The burgers her eis the owners spin on what every test market study they did prior to opening up the first store.Again this is not a slam on them or a bad review. It's just one Detroiter perspective on what is truly authentic and what they are replicating here.Not a bad spot they have three valley locations stop in and give the a shot. More...
Five stars five stars five stars all the way! This place has amazing food and the customer service is exceptional! The owner is an amazing person as well!
The best burger in the Valley. Nuff said except Yelp is making me put 50 characters.
This place is awesome, got a couple of burgers and some coney fries to share with the hubby, it was delicious ! We can't wait to go back and get some coney dogs. I definitely will be recommending this place. And as for the atmosphere, even with a Cavs shirt on, we were treated like old friends. I love this place !! More...
If you have ever had Coney Island dogs you will love this place if you never have had it then you need to come here and try it. Best dogs in Arizona and the chili cheese fries are addicting. WARNING!!!!! If you have an addictive personality do not come More...
This place is legit. After moving here from the Detroit area, I haven't had a Coney in a while. This hit the spot. The dining room however, was filfthy. Every table was dirty, the floor was dirty, and the dining room was hot and stuffy. Clean the place please! More...
I felt like I walked back into Michigan! Food was awesome!!! Service awesome!! Amazing!!!
My favorite hot dog in the world. To the owner (who I think may remember me), I am the customer from Austin Texas who bugs him about opening on over her one of these days. Looks like we may no longer have the Phoenix area customer. So not sure when we will be back. But still hoping you are considering a Detroit Coney Grill in Texas. Oh... Hamburgers were also amazing. More...
Well walked in here thinking it would be good.im pretty much blown away.owner from Detroit super nice and funny as anything being I'm from Philly now AZ.wish he was my neighbor.lol but the food is do fresh.seriously folk.this place is a hidden gem.the price point on the food is spot on..I'll be back. More...
This is the best place to eat in Arizona. It felt like Detroit as soon as I walked in. Staff is super friendly. The owner is great and very humble. I drive an hour just to come here. It’s 100% worth it. If you’re from the Midwest you will definitely enjoy it. Faygo and Better Made chips. Now they have super man ice cream. You just can’t beat it. More...
Debbe Golick Stewart
We have been missing our" fix"since we moved here. Before we left MI we went to Senate's on Plymouth Rd in Livonia!! My sister discovered this place here by accident. She met Dave and for months I had to hear she was taking us out to lunch there.... Finally yesterday we went and we all left with a full belly and smiles on our faces. The staff was very friendly and I loved seeing the pictures on the walls!! This May The Tigers are coming to town to play The Diamond backs and we are going in full Tiger gear!!! We are going to try to stop at the restaurant downtown. Hope next one Dave starts by is closer to where we live! Definitely will see us again soon. More...
Michelle GreenQueen Carroll
When you want a Coney and you can’t go to Detroit to get it, come here. The cheeseburger is really good too!
Yesterday was the day to try Detroit Coney Grill. While their a/c was struggling it didn’t matter. Had 2 dogs with mustard, onion and kraut. All I can say is mmmmmmmmmmm I was a Ted’s follower being that I’m from Buffalo. Not any more More...

My first time today and it taste just like home (Detroit). The staff was the best. I loved being asked was everything ok after dining in and receiving my meal with in 8 mins after ordering.
Detroit Coney Grill here in Tempe, AZ. It hit the right notes very well!
Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. Exactly the right kind of chili (there's only one kind that makes a real Detroit Coney, as you know). Faygo in six flavors. Better Made potato chips. Clever T-shirts. (One guy had a hybrid Arizona Red Wings shirt on, cute). Lots of cool memorabilia from all the sports teams. And a huge map on the wall of the Tri-County area to post a pin in your neighborhood. I really enjoyed my visit.
The only thing that was different to me was that I've never had fries with skin still on them at a Coney Island before. But they were REALLY good! More...
We had dinner there tonight - amazing service & amazing food! Best chili cheese fries ever! Thank you for the great food and hospitality!!!!!!
Dave is the man for bringing some of Detroit to Arizona! He’s like family now...
Highly recommend this place for the best coneys and burgers!
My coworker, a Detroit Native recommended this place and said it reminded him of food back home.
The Detroit coney was excellent and the fries are good too. I had great service and can’t wait to come back. More...
My favorite burger place! Great as a treat for lunch. AMAZING BURGERS! Angelica always has a smile and gets my order right. 10/10 will be back!
I am currently eating my bomb a** burger as I type this! OMG first of all i'd like to say how grateful I am for finding this spot! I'm not even embarrassed to say that I probably eat here every other day for lunch because the food is that damn good! unfortunately I always have to get my food to go so I never had the chance to really enjoy my food in the proper surroundings but its ok because like I mentioned before, the food is just that good!. In my opinion the staff is really cool and down to earth, a real family feel in there. if you are a reoccurring customer like myself eventually they'll become familiar with you and your order which personally makes me happy! all in all this is a dope spot, real authentic and great quality More...

Great food and friendly service!
Good food the best cook when it was Coney Island grill.
Great Coney dogs! Awesome burgers!! Definitely will go back
Great Food , wondetful.staff .i did miss my friens but seen tbe the owner
Sharon Hill Scully
Love this place! Delicious food, great comfortable atmosphere, welcoming friendly owners and staff!
Love this place but it's always too hot in there!!
So good! Best burger in town. I can't wait to come back and try a hotdog!
Liz Pajor Kramer
It's like being back in Detroit!! Food is great...... I loved being able to pick Faygo soda!! The cashier even desplayed some Detroit attitude! It was a bit expensive.
It's a different taste than I appreciate the Detroit experience
Great place. Beats 5 guys and only a fraction of the cost!!!
I love Coney Island and every time I introduce my friends or family to eating there, they love it as well. Their Coney hotdogs are amazing and so are their French fired; always crispy! If you've never been, then you need to go! The guys who work there are very friendly. It's a gem in downtown Phoenix area. More...
good people good foods and good music
Definitely gives that Michigan friendly customer service.. I'm from saginaw and don't go back home much .. so they knew exactly how to approach and make u wanna try everything on the menu... coneydogs are phenomenal.. wings are on point.. More...
Food is great! This Application nededs to fix the name of the restaurant.
You almost feel like your at Lafayette or American, or if your too lazy to go downtown, National, in Roseville will do. The sidewalk seating just fine for this transplanted Detroiter
It was the perfect taste of home. Including the attitude of the staff.I enjoyed the chilli chesse dogs w/onions and fries.
A little place where they know how to make authentic Detroit Style coney dogs. Although it was 98 degrees out in Phoenix and there were palm trees, I could imagine myself being in Detroit eating a delicious coney dog. The prices were very reasonable and they had Vernors Ginger Ale and Faygo pop in glass bottles as well as Better Made Potato Chips. Who could ask for anything better? More...
Small location and No AC. The food definitely was worth it though. Will return next time I am in the area.
Fun place to visit if you are missing Detroit or if you are looking for something different. We were visiting town and I found this place on yelp. The whole family liked it. Check out the specials and set aside one lunch if you are in town for this place. More...
Food was good and reasonably priced. Wait staff was helpful and kind. My only complaint is the place was absolutely filthy. The tables weren't wiped, the garbage was full with food all across the top, it looked like it hadn't been swept in ages and there was black stuff growing around the hoses that the beverages came out of. I might go back for the food, but I won't eat inside. More...
Well unfortunately I don't have a lot of good stuff to say about this place. The cashier was really flustered by an upset customer on the phone, it look like she went to reprimand the cooks while on the phone with customer. It was a VERY BUSY place so I can kind of understand her being a little overwhelmed but the food wasn't with all of that hassle! The coney dog was only ok, the burger was delicious! The fries are amazing, delicious, freshly cut in house, so PERFECT!! I'd go back for a burger & fries but not a coney More...
I've eaten here a couple more times. Jury duty. At this moment I am in DTW waiting for a plane. Had a coney at National Coney Island. Bun and chili seemed better at Detroit Coney Island! More...
This is my go to spot downtown! The food is authentic; "the real D". Service is fast & accurate; the staff is genuine. A real gem among the downtown landscape!!
Awesome food! Had the chili Coney and double burger with bacon and cheese. Fresh, hot and tons of flavor. My own personal preference, I wish they had shredded cheddar cheese for the chili coney.
Great service. Prompt and the big mackinaw is the best. Their fresh cut fries are delicious.
Ive been working on Central Ave for a while now. And I've had Coney Before. But this location, The counter girl had some "TUDE" today!!! And it was all made up when I bit into the triple burger, OMG!!!One of the best burgers ever!!Chica can keep her attitude, I will definitely be returning. More...
Being from Michigan, I decided to try this place to see if it met my standards for a Coney Island. I was impressed. This was the best Detroit-style Coney dog I've had outside of Detroit. They also had Faygo pop and Better Made potato chips. Prices were very reasonable too. Next trip to Phoenix will include a stop here for lunch! More...
Best burger in at least downtown Phoenix. If you want an amazing burger, order the Big Mackinaw and pay to add the grilled onions. It's a take on the Big Mac but multiples of goodness better. No frills place but the food is exceptional. Highly rec More...
Came here just to grab a quick lunch. Chili dogs have always been my favorite and it's finally great to have found someplace that's has it. The dogs have this great snap to them and the chili was pretty spot on. If only they came to SF, it'd be a great place to just grab a decently priced hot dog and chili cheese fries. More...
Moved to Downtown Phoenix from the metro Detroit area and am beyond grateful to have this little piece of home here. The food is amazing, they have Fay-go and Better-made chips and plus the Tempe location has Superman Ice cream! It even looks like a coney grill on the inside. Just wish the downtown location would stay open until 5 or 6, 3 is really early! Love this place, Totally recommend! More...
Wow. You should go. V dope. V good. Good service v v friendly. Have a good time and a good food. Cultural and relevant. Easy to bite.
I’m from the D. So when you see a place called Detroit Coney Grill you have to check it out! It is worthy of the Name. Coney was great. Faygo and Better Made Potato chips, I thought I was back home. Check it out. More...
Was a little optimistic being from Chicago, but I was working in the area and you can't go wrong with one of their burgers and a coney fry! Great food, great staff. Even went so much as every employee yelled thank you when you tip. Something as little as a thank you for a couple dollars made my day More...
This place is a hidden Gem! The woman who takes orders was beyond hospitable! If you are looking for a great home made burger & fries this place is for you. Our food came out in under 5 minutes and was delicious! While it's not fancy the food is top notch! More...
I'm from Detroit! Was born and raised there. When I first seen this place I was like everybody wants to always claim The D's Coney Island restaurant style. On lunch break. I headed over to pick up our order that I called in. I have to give them a thumbs up for coming close if not spot on. It is authentic folks! Dive in! More...
I had The Dustin which was created by a customer. I was looking to save money but wanted try chili dogs and chili burger. The Dustin delivered. Chili cheese burger with 2 split dogs and 2 different cheeses. Can't remember if burger had 2 patties or not. I just know it was good and filling. Tried eating with hands but knife and fork are required. More...
I love this place. As a 50's diner afficionado, this place hits home for me. The hot dogs are tasty, with great chili and onions (a.k.a. The Coney, my favorite) sloppily drenched on top. The burgers are a little small, so don't hesitate to order a double or triple, but they taste great with melted cheese, pickles, ketchup and mustard. Throw in a cashier done up in 50's style, and I expected the Fonz to stroll in while I scarfed down my food. I was in Phoenix for a week-long conference and I ate here 3 times. Next time I'm in town, this will the FIRST place I go to. More...
Great burgers! Fresh Cut Fries.Just wish they spent their slow time doing some deep cleaning In the dining room. Walls were grody, framed pictured had stains over the glass.
Great burgers and coneys. Angelica was a super hostess. Will be back thanks again. Love the faygo and better made chips. Outstanding cheese fries. Dave you rock More...
Went here for a Dog and ended up ordering cheese burger. Ordered the Big Mack, there version of McDonalds Big Mac. Burger was cheap, $7 and very good. Got it for takeout, the isidide of the restaurant was crowded and not the cleanest. Will definitely return. Cheap and tasty. More...
Delicious burger! I had the Big Mack Inaw. It was seasoned well, hot, cheesey goodness. My son recommended this spot and said the burger was the best he's ever had and he wasnt kidding! I can't wait to come back and try the hot dogs. More...
Great food and amazing service! Angelica and her team provided exceptional service! The restaurant was clean and the food was perfectly prepared. We will be visiting again!
First time here and I have to recommend it. I ordered the gyro pita to take back to my desk and was surprised it was still piping hot when I opened it.This looks like the type of place where everything will be good! Next up... burger and fries. More...
This is becoming quite the staple downtown. ive eaten here on multiple occasions. what i like about ths place is thats there's no BS. just straight up good greasy food. no fake stuff or highly processed food. everything is cooked to order. the service is always welcoming. food comes out quick! everything about this place is great from the prices, through the food all the way to the service. it's a bit dingy and could use some touch up to make the place look a bit more fresh. highlights:-soda mixing machine-fast service-simple food-burger & hot dogs More...
Awesome burgers, fries, and chili dogs! My favorite is the buffalo chicken pita. Wonderful service as well.
This is a great place downtown Phoenix to get a burger and fries without breaking the bank! I always order mine to go and by the time I walk in it is ready. You an put whatever you want on your burger depending on your taste for the day and the fries are nice and crisp. More...
Born and raised in Detroit and this is best coney dog I've had outside of Detroit. They even have Faygo pop... yes, pop, not soda! Truly enjoyed it again and will return. Great crew of guys as well. More...
OK, I'm originally from Detroit and this place is pretty close to the real thing. In many ways it may be better because the amount of hamburger they use in the chilli. My only knock are the hours, it's only open during the week for lunch. I live downtown and I would love to see the hours extended, especially now that there are so many people moving downtown with all the apartments being built. I think this place could even be open late on the weekends with all the night life downtown too! Would be great food after a night of drinking!lol. More...
Great customer service. Doesn't feel fake. The food is great! Found my new hot dog spot!!!
My husband is from Detroit Michigan. For 24 years he's been looking for a good loose burger, hasn't had any luck. Today he said it felt and tasted like he'd gone home. It was authentic and delicious.
This is my first time at this restaurant. I was greeted when I came in and told that I would get 10% off since I work close to the restaurant. I was able to get a substantial lunch for under 7 dollars. The staff were courteous and pleasant. Got my to-go order very quickly and it was delicious. I will be back... More...
First of all would like to shout out to the whole freakin store for a fantastic job in customer service. Seriously! From the moment I walked in the staff was extremely nice. Now to get down to the review. I ordered the infamous Coney meal. The price is reasonable, good for lunch a meal. The food came out and OMG. From the in house made chili, the PERFECT snap and juiciness from the hotdog all the way down to the cheese.... I've had a lot of hot dogs but man! it was delicious. The meal came with two coney's and FRESH potato fries. When I say fresh, they chopped them there and fried them there. Extremely happy with this place. The food was good, the service was exceptional. Defiantly will be coming back. More...
The Detroit Coney Grill was a great place to grab a cheap lunch. I had a hot dog with ketchup and an order of fries, and my mom ate a coney dog with onion rings. We both thought our dogs were well cooked and flavorful. Fries and rings were hand cut and very tasty. We dipped them in ranch and both suspect the ranch was housemade -- it was amazing!My mom did think the chili was a little heavy on the cumin, and I thought my bun was a little hard. But it was cheap, yummy, and fun -- I'd definitely come back again if I lived in Phoenix! More...
Great Coney and fries with a friendly staff to boot! Happy with my choice for lunch today.
I just finished the best darn burger I've had in my life! Do yourself a favor, get the QUAD burger, 4 meats 4 cheese, their patties are very small and thin so 4 patties equals to about a single patty frm other places, but its VERY well worth it. Seasoned and cooked to perfection, and the loads of melted cheese... MMMM...I have 2 days left in Phoenix and will be coming here twice a day till I leave. Thanks Detroit Coney Grill, for ruining burgers for me everywhere else I go. Nothing compares. More...
Quick and easy for lunch. Really good burger and fries. A small version of "Five Guys" is what I would compare to on the East Coast.
Went at lunchtime on a weekday - there was a line but it went very quickly. Reasonably priced - double cheeseburger with fries and drink for $8. Food was very tasty! Burger patties are super thin, so order several if you like thicker meat. Great customer service! More...
This place is so nostalgic to me. I am a Midwestern transplant so I was brought up on Coney Island hot dogs and loose meat sandwiches (aka Maid-Rites). My job is right smack in the middle of central city so I went out looking for a new lunch spot and I found it at Detroit Coney Grill.The staff was very inviting and answered my questions. My first time I ordered 2 Coney dogs and their raw-cut fries. Both were top notch, the chili was great, the dogs were perfect and the fries were awesome. What's even better is they have Faygo pop, so I can eat my lunch with some Redpop or Rockin' Rye. I even take a few bottles home for the future wife, who is also a Midwesterner-turned-desert-dweller.I've also tried their loose meat sandwiches. It did strike me as odd that they served them in hot dog buns, but that didn't matter, the meat was perfectly seasoned and the chili is a nice addition. Just make sure you use a bib or don't wear your good clothes when taking a bite or you might be wearing some of it. All in all, this place espouses the greasy spoon mentality of 'It ain't healthy, but it sure is good." So don't expect low-calorie here, just savor the doggy, meaty, chili goodness and have a Faygo to go with it.The only knock I can give to this place is it is tiny. If you catch the early part of the lunch hour you can usually find a seat but it fills up fast, there's not much in the way of seating and when you load up on people it can get a bit stuffy. I've dined in and taken-out and usually I just take it to go.Price-wise, this place is pretty decent given it's location. Many downtown Phoenix places are pricy, but this place is reasonable. You can get a pretty filling lunch for around $10 and with a multitude of specials and even a rewards program you can get good grub for cheap. If you find yourself downtown, definitely stop in, you won't be disappointed. For you Midwestern transplants, this is a taste of home that you won't soon forget. More...
Perfect stop for lunch before heading out! I was in the mood for a sandwich or hot dog and came up on this place. The coney did not disappoint! The staff's friendly personality was nice, too. More...
It should be clear by now that dieting was not amongst my New Year's resolutions. If it had been, then Detroit Coney Grill would be the type of place where you would give said diet the middle finger, kick it while its down, and even yell at it for good measure. Fortunately my stomach and I were in agreement that this spot was on the to do list for 2017. DCG's flagship location in Tempe has been a wildly popular spot for locals and ASU students alike for years. But it wasn't until they opened their second location in Downtown Phoenix that I had them on my radar. It's a Monday through Friday lunch only spot (which is a little annoying) so I haven't had many opportunities to look this place up. However as today was a holiday for me, it was time to finally take this hot dog journey.The restaurant is located on the northwest corner of Central and Adams, in what can be described as a pretty nondescript sector of Downtown. Not a huge amount of foot traffic through this area after 5pm so I sort of get why they do lunch only. The place has all the elements of your standard burger and fries joint. Order at the counter, grab your drink, unpretentious furniture, and even some sticky spots on the floors (no doubt the result of numerous spilled sodas). What stands out here though is the almost religious devotion to making the food and drinks taste like home for Detroit expats. According to the guy up front, almost all of their ingredients (the beef, the hot dogs, and even the Faygo sodas) are shipped in from Michigan. Having never set foot in The Great Lakes State, I'll take their word for it. Let's get to the food.For my first venture here I went with the menu item boldly listed as their house specialty. A Detroit Coney Combo. A Detroit hot dog covered with loose burger meat, their in house coney chili, mustard, and diced onions. Also got a side of fries and a bottled water. Total cost including tax: $10. As I was one of only a few patrons on this holiday Monday, my food arrived on my table in about 2 minutes.As I said earlier, I'd never had an authentic Detroit Coney hot dog before in my life. I now see what I've been missing. This thing is a dietician's nightmare and messy enough to where you'll probably have chili on your fingers and palms. And it's worth every penny. Juicy, meaty, flavorful, delicious. If my cholesterol wasn't a concern, I could eat these all day. Whatever trouble DCG goes through to get their stuff from the Detroit area, it's pretty clearly worth the trouble. A side note that I didn't care much for the fries as I thought they were overdone. I like my fries to be crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the outside, but these were the potato equivalent of a well done burger. A relatively small blemish on the meal, but worth noting.If you can't make it to their Downtown Phoenix location for a weekday, they are open for dinner (and on Saturday) at their Tempe location. And per the manager they're opening a third location in Mesa pretty soon. Great value, tasty ingredients, affordable on any budget. Vegetarians and dieters, steer clear. More...
I was craving for food badly and we saw this place and decided to go there. *Fingers crossed* and yes! One of the places I always wanted to go to. Always been a foodie and this place knows my taste so well. The beer was chilled, chicken cheese burger was delicious, and the chilli chicken fries were excellent. The staff was well-disposed. I didn't have to wait for long. Service was quick and the price very affordable. Decent and adorable décor. Do visit here! More...
Authentic Detroit Coney Island, complete with loose burgers, gyros, coneys, even Vernors and Faygo! A classic!!
The food was good. The location is small but adequate. The customer service was great.
Although I work five minutes from here I oddly rarely eat here. It's good comfort food to be sure but I'm 100 lbs of comfort food over my limit. Went back today in desperate need of comfort. It was delicious. Friendly staff. Hand made food. Lively banter. I'm 1300 calories in at this point but I'm all the calmer for it. More...
Just like back in the D! Chile was up to Detroit standards. Fries were fresh out the deep fryer. They have the new self serve coke machine so plenty of pop (that's what we call soda in Detroit) options. Air conditioning wasn't pumping very strong so it was quite warm for dine in. If you are from Michigan make sure to pin your hometown on the map. More...
Is it really so cold in the D? Sure is bitch. I ordered the Big D burger, it tasted like Berry Gordy and Motown came all over that burger while Violent Jay from ICP shoved that messy burger in my face. I sat at a table next to Dej Loaf and Eminem. Dej was drinkin a red pop Faygo and Em sipped on an ice cold Vernors as they reminisced about the days when Kid Rock was still cool. I fuck with this place heavy. More...
Excellent food and friendly staff. Great coneys, excellent and addictive fries. We came with our two kids and they have an 'Everyday Special' of 2 Coneys, fries and a drink for $9.99. Filled the kids up with smiles on their faces. More...
Small spot with limited seating...but great food. Get a triple burger at the minimum. My friend had the hotdog with everything. We both left happy and full. Pricing was average but just really good food. When you arrive to order? Have someone in the group get seats. It fills up fast! More...
The best Coneys in Phoenix! Danielle and her dog patrol are great! Nothing like a Coney, Cheese Fry, and a Faygo to make you forget about the daily grind. Wish there was one closer to Scottsdale... More...
Finally a place that takes me back to the D. This place is very very very good. The coney dogs are just as good as the originals from back home, if not better. I got Faygo, Bettermaid chips, and flashbacks of just how much I missed Detroit. I've taken many friends there who are from Detroit and they all can't thank me enough. We ordered almost everything on the menu just to compare and we all agreed their burgers and dogs are A 1. We had to meet the owner and shake his hand because he really did bring a wonderful memory of where we grew up. Dave, my Detroit Lions hat's off to you for doing such a great job and really bringing back memories of the Motor City. Please keep it up David!!!!!!!! More...
We are from Detroit and were so happy to have this restaurant in our backyard! Mark & Julie Scottsdale AZ
So legit it makes u feel like ur back in Michigan. Great food!!!!!!! I absolutely love it!!!!!!!
Great food. I had the Big Mac and it was delicious!!!! Definitely recommend this place. Great homemade fries.
AMAZING food and people! They have Faygo & Better Made chips plus Town Club pop! You gotta try this place, no other coney compares! Tell Dave (owner) I sent ya. They grind their own beef daily, fries are greatly made daily. There are daily specials. Be prepared for fresh! More...
What an experience in Detroit hot dogs and soda. We stopped in here for lunch on a lazy Thursday afternoon and it was pretty good. The staff was courteous and helpful as they assisted us in picking the best dogs for our tastes. I got the every day special (2 dogs fries and a drink for $10) and the wife got a loose burger. Both were spectacular. Honestly a hot dog is a hot dog to me but what made this place was the fries and the burger. The fries were fresh and cooked perfectly. The loose burger was well flavored and presented well on the bun. I have always liked loose meat burgers and this one did not disappoint (from what I could steal from the wife). The place is small and not fancy but it is a hot dog joint so can't fault it there. If you are looking for a filling, cheap and tasty lunch give this place a try. More...
I was visiting Phoenix for the first time and needed a good lunch spot that was close to my hotel. This place had good reviews on Yelp and seemed unique so I gave it a try. I got the Detroit coney combo which was the Thursday special. They were pretty busy since it was about noon when I arrived however the order taking process went quick and smoothly and my food was ready just a few minutes later. I requested no mustard or onions and to my delight, they did not mess this up. The dog was delish and the addition of the chili and ground beef really set it off. The fries were a bit well done to my liking however everyone prefers their fries a certain way so I didn't let this bother to me. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely Detroit Coney Grill to a friend or fellow yelper. More...
I miss home. Glad I have a little bit of it here in the city! I always get the Hani with Fries. It's by far my favorite and the one I would always order back home. Here the portion size is so big I had to take it home. I never had leftovers back in Detroit. More...
I came in on a Wednesday for the bogo Coney special. It was awesome. They were extremely busy but the food came out fast and delicious. I will definitely be back
This place is great. Clean little restaurant with fresh, good tasting food at a reasonable price. If you are visiting and looking for a good hamburger, hot dog or fries, this is your place.
Throughout my four month jury duty service, I came to this location often. My first visit there, I witnessed a very kind act by this staff. The kindness they showed to the homeless man, made me want to give them my business. This is absolutely some of the best service I have received in town as well. The guys are always friendly and fast. The grilled chicken pita and fries are fantastic. The food is high quality and they work with very fresh ingredients. Whenever I'm downtown, I will make sure to return to give my business to such a wonderful staff. More...
Took my bride to my favorite coney spot!! Always great coneys, great fries, great faygo and great service!!! Excited about the rumor I heard of a bell road possibility!!! Getting dangerously close to my place!!!! Keep em' coming Dave!!! More...
Came here with my fiancé for the 1st time a week ago and have been back 3 times in the last week! Live the food here best coney I have had by far in Phoenix! Great customer service Chrissy always greets us with a smile and fast service!!! More...
Great customer service! Everyone is always friendly whenever you come in and Chrissy gives you great suggestions to add to your meal. The food is fast and simple. I always get the coney dog! More...
It was like walking into a Midwest portal. Really friendly people-made a few friends. Crissy and Danielle were very fun to talk to. I had the gyro salad and it was awesome. More...
Good food! Taste like the real Detroit Coney Island! Good customer service from Crissy! We'll definitely visit again!
Great service from Crissy and Danielle while visiting from MoTown. Awesome Coney ! Great service !
Reminds me of home. I love this place. Go get a real faygo! Their Coney dogs are on point. And I ordered clothes from them. I miss Detroit and this place filled the void. More...
Flew in from DC and stopped by this place....AMAZING!!Customer service is awesome; Crissy was very friendly and made great recommendations.
Awesome place for lunch whether you want to get out of the office for a bit or just swing by and pick something up. I had the Gyro Pita, and it had been so long since I had an awesome one. Nice fast service especially for those of us that work downtown and may not have a lot of time to spare. More...
First time trying this place. Danielle was a wonderful greeter and explained the menu and extras to me. A customer having lunch recommended I get the hot dogs. Tried the everyday special....fantastic!! Will be back - thanks More...
What can I say about Detroit Coney Grill in downtown Phoenix?Fantastic food cooked fresh with amazing customer service. Hours are Monday through Friday 10:30 AM until 3 PMChrissy Danielle and Dustin are super nice as well as Dave the owner! I highly recommend coming here eating a triple and a Coney dog. Two thumbs up and five stars More...
What a great find! Thanks Yelp. I was in town for a convention and tried to eat here on Sunday... But they were closed. I managed to sneak over on Tue for lunch. I had the everyday coney dog combo, it was great. Chrissy was real outgoing and helpful. I ended up bringing a co-worker for lunch the next day. Had the big Mack cousin... Much better than a Big Mac We need one of these stores in WA state! More...
If you're from Detroit you can't miss this place. The best coneys outside of Detroit. Need to open a place in Peoria so I can go all the time.
Awesome food. Great specials and every day deals. Phenomenal service and staff (Chrissy and the gang). Definitely a must if you're in downtown Phoenix.
Delicious Greek chicken salad. Chrissy cashier, Dustin cook, and Danielle manager are all very courteous and helpful.
Just moved back to Phoenix and tried out this hot dog place! Good place for some good chili hot dogs! Great service from Chrissy!!
Simply the best hot dog I've had outside of New York ever. Great taste....real snap of authentic casing, caramelized onions packed with flavor. Fries are fresh cut. Friendly staff. Going back again this week More...
Authentic coney's from Detroit! Yum! Service was fast and very friendly too. Wish we had one in Lakeway, Texas.
Stopped in for a lunch here. Let me be clear, this isn't a fancy, gourmet burger. In the category of fast food, however, it is a definite step up. We tried both the burger and a hot dog. Both solid, tasty dishes. They were fresh and not greasy. The fries were hot and fresh out of the fryer. You have to knock it out of the park for a five star review, but this place deserves a solid 4 stars. More...
I came here because I'm from Michigan, so I had to make sure it was legit. They had vernors, so they easily win with me. The reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they're only open for a few hours. I really wanted some vernors the other night. Anyway, the chili dog was good, glad it wasn't pork. It was beef. Good spot to grab a bite to eat for lunch. More...
Thanks to the cashier I didn't make the mistake of going with a double burger. She informed me that the triple is about the size of a regular burger. She was right on the money. The burger was delicious, I also had fries(they are steak cut style). Pricing was not too bad for downtown. I will go back to try the dogs next time. More...
Decent little hot dog burger spot in downtown Phoenix. They grind their own beef every morning. Nothing spectacular but tasty.
Had the Special for $7.77 today...coney dog "loose style" with their amazing fries and a drink. Gotta love this place! They now have a frequent diner system set-up so I'll be sure to go often!!!
Quick and easy no fuss food. Very friendly staff. Solid burger. Ordered a triple with cheese. Each beef patty is 2oz, ground in house and smashed flat. This leads to more grilled surface area per burger increasing flavor, but also a tougher texture as it ends up cooked through thoroughly. Super soft sesame seed buns was a plus! Natural cut fries that were a little soft and in-and-out like, but thicker. Next time I will get them fried well. Overall, very enjoyable! More...
Great greasy spoon burger! It really just doesn't get any better.
Good food. People were really nice! Customer service was great. Food was pretty good. Never been to Detroit, so I can't really compare.
I have been working downtown for ages and finally gave this place a try and the long line made me hopeful and they did not disappoint. I went with a coney special of 2 dogs, fries and a drink for 9.99 which is above my lunch budget but after my first bite I knew it was worth it. The staff is super nice and welcoming which is really Detroit of them and you get a little pin to mark a map if you are from the area. Great food, quick service and awesome staff will bring me back for sure! More...
Best coneys in Arizona hands down! Way to represent the D!!Also give their burgers a try...you wont be disappointed.
Love the Detroit Coney Grill! Food is great! I really get the taste of home (Michigan). I live in North Phoenix and it's worth the drive to both locations! Hope to see a coney grill in my area soon :) More...
The coneys are comparable to Lafayette or American Coney Island. This Detroiter was surprised to find such a good coney in AZ.
Excellent service and price. The chili dog looked as good as it tasted. The dog had especially good flavor.
Best dog in the WestI'm from LA but I came out to Phoenix for a football game. I'm sure glad I decided to eat a dog before the game. Their hot dog is all beef imported from Michigan (which sounds unnecessary but based on the taste is worth it) the dog itself has a nice tact on the outside but is totally juicy on the inside. The chili and chunky onions are simple and perfect. Also, their owner Dave is badass and rotates between their locations daily. Better than Pink's DTLA More...
Best food value in downtown Phoenix. Came in for the ucla game and ended up eating here twice because I liked it so much. The downtown location is cozier but it's in such a nice location it doesn't matter (plus it's got a great outdoor patio) I had the open face chili burger "hot dog" (no hot dog in it). The ground beef is fantastic. Nothing dirty, greasy, or over cooked. They've got the awesome modern Coke machines too. Simple great Detroit food! More...
I love coming to Detroit Coney. Their prices are amazing and the burgers are even better. Staff who works here takes care of you with the food. Its been a long time since I've actually been to Detroit but I know that they pretty much only hire people from Michigan so I'd say yeah its pretty authentic.Will return More...
Being from the Detroit area when I moved here in '99 I cod not find a "Good Coney". Until today, this place is the real deal! Best Coney Island in Phoenix hands down, add a Faygo Rock n Rye I was back home. Two on One all the way with fries and a rock n rye, so good, no great. I just wish there was one closer to Pima and Frank Lloydd Wright. But until there is it's worth the drive. More...
Just like eating a Coney in Detroit. In addition, the service is excellent. Recommend trying this at least once
The taste of home right down the street. Now would love one in N Scottsdale 101 and FLW. Great food and fast.
Congratulations Detroit Coney Grill, you got my first every 5 start vote! Were you the best restaurant I've ever eaten ate? No, but you certainly had the best greeter/order taker/server/nice to my kids person I've ever had at a restaurant. We came in, my wife and I and our 4 children (all 6 and under), you were so happy to see us. Most restaurants, especially during the lunch hour look at a family of six, with six little kids as more of an dumpster fire rather than an opportunity to serve. We sat down and then I placed a pretty complex order. Hot dogs with various toppings, fries with cheese, fries without. No onions or this but mustard no ketchup, wait, yes ketchup, oh and a chicken Philly pita. The food came out hot and fresh. The kids loved getting to pick their soda choice on the touch screen. You asked periodically if we were doing okay even as onlookers wondered how long we were going to take up the seats. Now for the food review. The Coney dog, your flagship item, it...was...tasty. The value meal was 2 Coneys (hot dog with chili, mustard and diced onions) fries and a drink for $9.99. That's a very solid meal. We had enough fries (natural cut and cooked just right) to split with three of the four kids. Our one daughter (5) inhaled the cheese fries and my wife thought the chicken Philly was so tasty. You have this great little way of catching my cell number for coupons. Even though I usually hate something like this, getting a text from you today made me remember the wonderful time we shared way back to yesterday at 12:15. Thank you Detroit Coney Grill, I'll see you very soon. More...
Have mints handy if you want onions!Fast food done right. No wait at counter. Ordered Monday special: two coneys with fries and drink. Coneys with mustard and onions. Fries are fresh cut and fried. Hotdog are grilled, and have nice crisp snap. What's to complain? More...
This place felt like home with the greeting to the end of our meal, service is friendly and made me feel like I'm back home in Michigan. I ordered the loose hamburger coney and I ordered my friend a coney dog.. He loved it - considering he is a native in AZ, and he fell in love with the cream soda from Faygo!! I had to get my Vernors !! Everything tasted fantastic!! Hands down - love this place - wish their was one closer to me in North Phoenix. More...
Being from the Detroit metro I've always missed having true Detroit style coneys when not at home. A friend told me about this place and I decided to give it a try and I was ecstatic to find a place that reminds me of home. The chili and the snap of the hot dog skins taste just like back in Detroit. I wish I would've known about this place years ago! More...
First time here. Good food, definitely not healthy eating but worth breaking a diet for. Some of the family had their Monday Detroit special. Another had their Triple Burger, & paid extra for grilled onions & jalapenos. Fast friendly service. Happy Labor Day to the staff who had to work today. More...
Dave is amazing! He brought the authentic coney dog to Arizona!!! I'm at McDonald and Scottsdale Road and would LOVE an Old Town location! Also, please bring the Sanders hot fudge cream puff to the menu!!! More...
Never been to Detroit or had a Cony. Walked it and was greeted by a Dave. Very friendly and helpful. I told him to place my order for me to give me a taste I'd Detroit and he hooked me up with the 2 Coney meal and a Fargo Rock&Rye. The food was excellent. Tasted better than normal hot dogs and the frys were very good. I'll be back to try the burgers next. More...
Phenomenal would be an understatement! The food transported me back to Detroit and was delicious. We have lived in Arizona for 4 years and have missed having real Detroit Coney Dogs until we found Detroit Coney Grill. David made us feel like we were back in Michigan and truly put a huge smile on my 16 year old daughters face when he sat a bowl of Superman Ice Cream in front of her. We live in Avondale and it was worth the drive and will highly recommend Detroit Coney Grill to our friends and family! Can't wait until David opens a location closer to us! More...
I love Detroit coney grill! Not only is the food amazing, the service is incredible! The owner is such a sweet guy and he's hilarious! I love the "mom and pop" feel of the place even though it's in the center of downtown Phoenix. I've been to both the Tempe and the Phoenix locations and I love both! More...
The Coney's are simply amazing. I love the crisp break you get in biting into the hot dog. I love watching them cut my fries to order.
I tried this place for the first time yesterday. I'm originally from Detroit and I love real Detroit Coney dogs. Only place I could get them was back in Michigan or to bring the ingredients back here to Arizona when I travel up there. These are real Detroit Coney dogs it was just like being back home. The food was excellent the service was great and the people are very nice. I had the Coney dog, Chili Cheese Fries and Faygo Rock & Rye it was so good! I'm so glad they are in town and I'm hoping they will open one in the East Valley. I live in Apache Junction and would love to have one closer to home but will definitely drive to Tempe if I have to. It's worth the drive! More...
Yum... Yum.... Good food friendly service. Coney combo ...sooo good. Fries......? Sooo good. The food was good.
Real, "michigan style" coney dog! From the chili to the vienna style weeny. Havent tried anything else on their menu, however i dont really see a need to. Suckin on chili dawgsOutside the DCG....! More...
This place is easy to overlook. Little burger place in a strip mall, like thousands exist all over the west. But man their burgers are amazing! Each patty is only 2oz but seasoned to perfection and cooked to sizzling and cheese dripping deliciousness. I can only imagine how glorious these burgers would taste drunk!Definitely give them a try! Great customer service, east coast Pop available, great family owned feel.Edit: after receiving a message from the owner I decided to up my review from 4 to 5. I never give a 5 unless the combination of quality, service and ambiance is just amazing. The dedication and personal touch this place brings deserves it. More...
Dave's restaurant is amazing. The dogs are hands down the best in town and with fresh cut fries i am now spoiled and can't go anywhere else. Everything is super fresh and best quality. Service is phenominal. Buffalo chicken salad... wow. Hanis... try one. You'll be hooked though I must warn you. Can't wait to have a fresh ground burger next. You can feel the love In Dave's amazing creations. Good quality food, service and people. Home run. More...
Enjoyed the chili dog, but the chicken in the chicken salad was really tasty and moist. The best part was the staff - so friendly and helpful! Reasonable prices for yummy food and great service? Yes, please! More...
Everyone is super friendly from the cashier to the cooks. The prices are very reasonable as well. The food was awesome, I got the Big D burger and my fiancé a Buffalo Chicken Pita. Both were on point, and were served within a few minutes of ordering them. Both were cook perfectly and put together really well. The Big D burger could have gotten really sloppy really quick but surprisedly didn't at all. Overallawesome place, will definitely be back! More...
A taste of Motown in the desert.A Detroit Thanksgiving tradition in our family...head down to Woodward for the J.L. Hudson parade, stop into Lafayette Coney Island for our coney fix, watch the Lions lose and then the turkey and all the trimmings.So glad to have Detroit Coney Grill in the valley! Every bit as delicious and tasty as Lafayette or American's coneys. Wash it down with a Faygo Rock n Rye or Redpop interspersed with some BetterMaid chips and with the airfare I save from flying from Sky Harbour to Metro Airport, I can indulge frequently.Perhaps Detroit Coney Grill can get a beer/wine license and serve up a cold fire brewed Stroh's.Looking forward to a north valley location closer to my Anthem home.Detroit Coney Grill rocks! More...
So delicious, great price, and quick but doesn't taste like fast food. The coney dog was perfect not greasy, good flavor and they are hand made! Burger has great flavor, and well balanced. The cheese sauce is AMAZING! Love that they offer rewards. The staff was super friendly.Alma School and Southern More...
If you've spent time in Michigan and enjoyed the Coney Dogs at American or Lafayette Coney Island there, then you will enjoy this place. It's real Coney Dogs with chili like you get in Detroit, a side of Better Made potato chips, and then wash it all down with a Faygo (which is a pop, not a soda). As someone who was born in Ann Arbor, attended Hillsdale College, and then lived in the Detroit area for a few years, this was a great reminder of what I liked about Michigan... without all the snow. Just a tip, feel free to have a conversation about the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, Wolverines, or Spartans, but don't mention Ohio State or Notre Dame unless you want to take a lot of abuse! More...
This place is the best. The food is great, I had the "Big D" and it was the best burger I ever had. The fries are delicious, Super man ice cream and vanilla float are out of this world. The atmosphere is just like walking into a friends house and watch them cook for you. More...
I had my favorite Hani. Tasted just like from MI! Loved it! Hubby had the loose burger, we shared Better Made potato chips and RC pop. So good, it made me homesick. The owner and cashier were so friendly. Now, if they just had something Sanders for dessert....Can't wait to get one of these in the West Valley, preferably in Surprise. There are Michiganders all over here! More...
Excellent quick hot food. I had the coney dog, fries and a pop. Excellent customer service.
I'm sitting here drinking a Vernor's in a glass bottle while eating a Hani at a Coney Island...and I ask you: is that last sentence the most Detroit thing you've ever heard, or what?The food is delicious, the Hani was at my table faster than it ever was in Michigan. I can't say how nice it is to have this place in town.The only downfall I see to it are the hours. Like a lot of places in this part of downtown Phoenix, it closes once the employees at the local office buildings are done with lunch. It's such a shame, because I think that it could do so well at night if there were a bar it could partner up with in the area. More...
Super friendly staff! Coney dog was awesome and the chile cheese fries were amazing. Highly recommended this place.
My daugher and her boyfriend brought home a menu and I HAD to go and try the loose burger. IT WAS THE BEST. Also stole a taste of my daughter's coney dog, which was excellent. And I would drive all the way across Tempe for the fries! Great atmosphere, great people. I admit to loving the opportunity to wipe my feet on Ohio State. More...
This place is the best!Ok, for starters. Anyone who has lived on the east coast, knows about Penn Station Subs. And you know how YUMMY their cheesesteak is. You also know, that there is NOWEHRE in the valley, that makes a cheesesteak that tastes remotely close to Penn Station...UNTILL I tried Detroit Coney Grill. While they don't make the sub version, their cheesesteak pita is a fine substitute...and the cheesesteak tastes JUST like Penn Station. My ex-wife has been in the valley over 4 years, and was unable to find a cheesesteak like Penn Station. Im glad I found Detroit Coney Grill!!Now, as far as everything else goes..YUMMY!! I have been trying to find someplace around that makes a chili similar to Tommys...and this is it. The burger patties ARE small, but that's ok. Get a triple, with chili..and you are SET! The dogs DO have that familiar snap when you bite them. I love the cheese sauce the use for the chili cheese fries...and the psudeo-Maid Rite loose meat they use for some of the menu items is delish as well!! Imagine a tray of fries, covered in loose meat, then smothered in chili, then topped with cheese sauce.GOOG GAWD MAN!The owner and employees are super nice. I had ordered a chicken philly pita with no mushrooms..but after the rest of my family had ordered, the owner, who was taking our order, had forgotten to subtract the mushrooms. So when he saw me picking the mushrooms out, he apologized. Later, as we were finishing up, he came out from back with a bowl, that had 4 scoops of their Superman Ice cream...free of charge!It kinda sucks, that now I have found this amazing place, I have to move up off of Happy Valley Rd. Its ok. it wont stop me from coming back.Thanks! More...
Went for our first time today man I felt like I went back home for 30 min! The coneys, better made, and Faygo hit the spot!! To top it off the owner was there to make sure everything was on point and even told us about the superman ice cream they have! This place hit home brought back my childhood memories for sure!! Please open a west valley location we're in surprise/ el mirage!! Thanks again More...
moving to tempe just to live closer to this joint. loved the food! top notch burgers and coneys. get the red faygo
Taste like home. The coneys are awesome, then add a Faygo and some "Better made" chips, how can you go wrong.
Excellent food and great customer service. I have tried this location and the one in Phoenix so far and the atmosphere of this location is like walking into a relatives house from the moment you walk in. I ordered the Gyro Pita and a Detroit Coney and throughly enjoyed both. The staff was engaged with their customers with casual conversation as well as asking for feedback. Definitely will be a place I return to! More...
Amazing food and service! Staff was friendly and my food came out fast and tasted great. Not to mention they have faygo! I'll definitely be a repeat customer! More...
Quite a good Coney, homemade chili sauce with mustard and onions. Fresh cut fries to boot. Good Wed. Lunch special 2 coneys, regular fries and fountain drink for $8.88. Will be back!
Simple and tasty, limited menu but get to the point, small but just what you need.My favorite is the buffalo chicken salad
This is the 2nd Monday in a row we have come here. We get the coney dog and chili cheese fries. It's so delicious, especially if you want a quick meal that's not a typical fast food joint! The service is really great and you can tell the owner truly does care if you enjoy the food! We will frequent this place again! More...
Great food, great customer service. I've had the burgers, chicken, pitas, and fries....all wonderful!!
As always Dave served up the best coneys and had superman ice cream today! Great burgers and made to order frys.
Native Michigander living in AZ. I love, love, love coney dogs. I miss coneys, purple cow, better made, sanders, etc. I live in Glendale, AZ. I saw DCG on Facebook Friday night and decided we would head over there for lunch the next day. I've tried coneys before from a restaurant that sold itself on food from back home. We tried it and weren't impressed. So, I was skeptical. I ordered 2 Detroit coney dogs, a Rock n Rye Faygo and coney fries. I also knew (from Facebook) there may be Superman ice cream in the near future...if it wasn't already all sold out. The coney dogs tasted a little bolder than I remember. But, I also tasted memories. So, these coney dogs passed the taste test and ripped my skepticism into teensy shreds of nothingness. The Faygo pop was awesome as always. To wrap up my time in coney heaven, I ordered Superman ice cream and a Faygo pop to go. The ice cream is exactly as I remembered. My better half had never had this ice cream so we shared the ice cream. He loves it. Btw, customer service is top-top-top notch. This place is worth the 30-minute drive each way. Perhaps some day it will come to the West Valley. If/when it does, I'm a be a regular. I DCG. More...
I have had the pleasure of eating many Coney dogs in MI over the years. Everyone has their favorite place to indulge. Mine would be Angelo's in the Flint area. There was a tiny part of me hoping they would surprise me with an olive burger but I don't think I saw one on the menu. At any rate, we split the basket since we needed a quickie before a movie down the street. My hubs who has never been to Mi, needed to be introduced to what a Coney was. Be was very impressed! I love this place and I find it comforting too see this little tiny piece of Mi in the desert. I will definitely be back! I discovered Detroit's in the Entertainment Guide. Most of my favorite places were discovered via the Entertainment Guide. I am somewhat new to AZ and there are so many choices. It basically serves as a compass for us. That and Yelp of course. I will be back! #yum Now if we could get our own little Frankenmuth. Awe, good times in Mi. P.S. the Blue Moon made my day to say the least. I snuck the rest into the movie and savored it in the dark. And now I see on FB that they are serving Superman ice cream tomorrow. #memorylane More...
Really liked my triple burger with fries, super nice employees who even say hello and goodbye
We discovered this place during Phoenix Comicon. It is delicious! I can't stop thinking about the Philly Cheesesteak Pita. Please open a location on the west side. 99th avenue and McDowell would be PERFECT. You would see a lot of traffic!! Definitely from myself, and many others I recommended to. The current locations and hours of operation make it almost impossible for us to be able to come by. More...
This is the best hot dog and burger joint in AZ. A must visit. This place makes the hot dog gourmet. And the loose meat burger is outstanding. Fresh cut fries, can't be beat.
Reminds me of going back to Michigan and seeing my family great place and environment!!
Being from Michigan we Love, Love, Love this place! The food is fantastic! We don't get to come here often because it's out of our way but every time we do we enjoy it! We are hoping another location opens closer to us! Highly recommend!!!!! More...
Honestly, no complains. Dogs cooked to perfection. They had great flavor and a very nice snap to them. Fries were very tasty and it was easy to tell they were fresh. Steamed buns so we're good there. Saw a few people eating the burgers. The patties looked really thin but the people eating them seemed to be enjoying them.I enjoyed my Detroit dog (chili, mustard and onion), fries and creme faygo. Babygirl loved her dog, fries and grape faygo. They passed the princess test so there's something to be said for that. At 3 years old she's plenty picky! We'll be back for sure. More...
We used to live in the Detroit area for over 35 years before moving here and were just at the Detroit Coney Grill; it was truly a taste from home, in Detroit! The staff is very friendly. The food is authentically Detroit! The coney chili sauce is really good as are the crunchy seasoned french fries! And the salad...I had the chicken Greek...is very generous and flavorful with the made to order grilled chicken and yummy Greek dressing. We don't get to that part of Phoenix often, but when we do, make it a point to stop here. We also took all of our kids when they came for a visit and they, too, loved it! More...
Loved this place, great dogs. Wonderful snap each bite. Worth the time for a quicky bite. Staff are friendly and helpful.
I was in town for a couple of days and looking for something new to try... I found the Detroit Coney Grill on yelp and was very impressed by how good their hot dogs and burgers were... very good hot dog and really good fries... friendly atmosphere... nothing fancy but really good food! I went twice in the same day... :)San Clemente, CA More...
Their coney dogs are the real deal! Washed mine down with a delicious Faygo--the owner is so nice and chatted with us while we watched a Tigers game. The chili cheese fries are hand cut and really good too. I only wish they had a location in Mesa! More...
Love this place the burgers are so good & the fries are some of the best in the valley. Try the big D next time your here I highly recommend it.
Detroit What! Might as well close your eyes bite down feel the snap and go into the "D" it's very good. If you can't be in Detroit you might as well come have the best dogs in the WEST. Nothing is better. Chili is great. The place takes Detroiters back home. More...
This an awesome place! Hot dogs snap when you take a bite! After 16 years in the Valley I found my hot dog spot!
Food is pretty average. I really enjoyed their fries. They are extremely yummy. Customer service is AMAZING! I will be a regular customer just because of it. They make you feel at home.The manager is very friendly and approachable. Nice to have people that still care about their service as much as the food. RECOMMEND! More...
Instantly transported 2K miles back to MI as soon as you walk in. From the decor, to the friendly Detroit hospitality, to the authentic eats. Would love if you decided to expand out further East. Even if you're not from MI, you will love this place. Oh, Faygo in a bottle, need I say more. More...
First time at bat with Detroit Coney Grill place is very friendly with customers. Very tasty and greasy! But Hey... that's chili dogs and fries to be expected! Going back to try something else on the menu so far so good! Hope to hit one out of the park with there Gyro sandwiches. Yes I would recommend this place for burgers fries and hot dogs! More...
I can't say that I'm still hungry, the portions are large and the taste is good. This did in fact taste like a fresher, more meaningful Big Mac. The thousand islands has become a postmark to MCD. The fries are great and will definitely go there, the meat on the burger was thin, (it must be something to do with the custom) in not a big fan of that. But over all it was a great experience. I can wait to try the hot dogs. More...
Best Chili Cheese Fries ever!!! Come to Avondale! To the owner... Just like you asked here are my main cross streets: Avondale Blvd. and Thomas. Review: (4.5) batmosphere was great! Right as you walked in very friendly. The owner even gave my boyfriend a free conie as a sample! The conie was definitely delicious and my boyfriend and I are not hot dog lovers, but it has no pork so we tried it. We got there towards closing time and they said we could stay and eat. I was already thinking about eating outside so we wouldn't bother them. Lol very kind people. So, My "Hani" pita was delicious, the chicken was crispy, cheese and just flavorful! My boyfriend had the D burger and he said it was delicious! We had the chili cheese fries and I must say, better than Portillos or Lenny's (or it is Leanie's?). Only reason I did not give a 5 is because I had the Greek salad and it wasn't as delicious as I thought. The Greek salad at Pita Kitchen is better. Oh and we had. Faygo pop, the black cherry flavor, it was tasty! I totally recommend this place!!! More...
From Mesa on Higley and Brown. Best damn dogs you can find outside of Michigan. Worth the drive, wherever you are from! You won't be disappointed.
As i'm from Michigan this gets a bonus star. The food reminded my of home, but the Diner didn't. I'll go back again, not every week, but once and awhile.
Back again, I think this is the 7th day this week and they are only open 6 days out of 7.. I feel like this is a home away from home, but the food is better (Don't tell my mom please) The customer service here is literally better then the service at any other establishment in Arizona, and that alone wins my business no questions asked.. I drive about 45 mins every time I eat here, multiple times a week, and I have never left hungry or unhappy.. If you like amazing, you will love Coney Grill!! More...
This place is top notch. The owners were in there chatting up a bunch of elderly people who were in AZ from Michigan. Food was great and relatively cheap. I recommend getting "One of Each" and grabbing a side of those salty fries. More...
The Big 3 of coneys......American Coney, Lafayette Coney, and now Detroit Coney Grill........thanks for bring the D to the Phx....We need one in Northwest valley
All Love thanks Dave u know we'll be back I love this place any and everybody come on in YUUUUUUP
My girlfriend is a Canton, MI native and I've heard plenty about local delicacies. Detroit Coney Grill delivers: the coney dog was great, and they have a wide selection of Better Made chips and Faygo. As a current Tucson resident, I would love to see a location open in our University area. We both think it would be a hit, and I would have a place to fuel my growing Rock & Rye addiction. More...
The food and service here is amazing. This place is a must try if you're in the Tempe area
Detroit Coney Grill is amazing! I work right down the road, so it's becoming a staple -- especially when I want a fresh, delicious burger. They'll make it anyway you want. I highly recommend a triple with both cheeses -- top with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and ketchup! So good! The Hani Pita is also delicious. More...
I don't give out five-star reviews without very good reason. With that said, this joint deserves 6 stars. Been going here regularly for the last year and the owner is great. Frankly I don't know his name, but every time I show up he finds me and gives me a fist bump and says "good to see you again!" So much for me trying to go incognito. The best thing on the menu are the burgers (triple with American cheese and everything except mayo and ketchup please). In short, I don't think I can go to Five Guy$ or In-n-Out again after getting used the burgers at this place. The fries are great as well and always cut in-house. They also just got a Coke Freestyle machine if you're into that. I suggest if you frequent this place that you join their "five star" club (ask them about it). More...
Awesome atmosphere with very friendly staff. Great to have Detroit food out here in AZ, especially coneys and Faygo pop. Coneys are BOMB! Fries dont look great, but are tasty. Havent tried anything but the coney special so far (2 coneys, fries and drink for $10). More...
If you're from Detroit, you will love this place. Nothing like two on one, chili fries and a Vernors!!
I lived in Detroit for awhile and I always ate at Coney Island , when I moved back to Arizona I tried all the coney islands here and they all were terrible . I came to Detroit Coney Island in Tempe for the first time 05/22/15 and after trying the chili cheese fries I knew they were an actual Detroit Coney Island . I found my home here in Az and I will be coming here ALL THE TIME . I give 10 stars to this place ! Thank you ! And I live in Verrado 45 mins west of Tempe ! The owner is super friendly ! More...
I went to lunch with my friend and he suggested Coney Grill. I loved it! Great service, awesome food and a fancy soda machine! I got a Double burger because the pattys are small - 2 ounces and the burger was perfect for me! Also the fresh cut fries are super yummy! Definitely worth a try. More...
Food reminds me of family and food back in Michigan. That being said is the coney the best I have ever had? No, but it's still pretty darn good. And when I want a Coney and a Faygo when I am in the downtown area this is a top pick for me. More...
Excellent burgers. Chilli cheese dogs are the best I've had. Extremely friendly staff. Faygo Pop. Live on Ellsworth and Southern. Worth the trip every time.
4.5 Stars.Tempe=Hot Dog Paradise! 3 great hot dog joints all within 5 miles of each other. Decisions, decisions! How would Detroit Coney Grill stack up? Pretty damn well as you are about to find out!I had driven by this place a few times but was always on my way down the street to Ted's. When I woke up this morning, I was craving a hot dog (Twice in less than a week). I decided to drive on down and see what Detroit Coney Grill was all about. I had never had a "Coney Dog" before today either. I was browsing their website and noticed that they had a Wednesday special which was 2 Coney Dogs, Fries and a Fountain Drink for $8.88. Sounded like a plan. I drove down, parked and walked in.Right when I walked in, I was greeted by a couple of the workers. I also noticed that the owner (one of the owners?) was behind the counter talking with the staff and shootin the shit. I went up to the register and placed my order for the Wednesday Special. My total was $9.40. I paid the lady my money, grabbed my cup for my drink and was on the way over to the Coke machine. While I was making my way over to get my drink, the owner guy walked up to me, asked me how I was doing and shook my hand. I thought that was really cool and it shows that he appreciates his customers! I grabbed my soda from the awesome Freestyle Coke Machine and took a seat. While I was sitting there, I noticed that the owner was talking shop with every single customer in the joint. He was explaining how they grind their own beef for their burgers, make their own chili, giving recommendations to customers etc etc. Really personable dude! A few minutes later, my number was called and I grabbed my stuff. Here is how it was................Coney Dogs- These dogs come topped with their homemade Coney Sauce aka chili, onions and mustard. This chili is ladled on top of a natural casing dog and nestled inside of a steamed hot dog bun. The chili kind of reminded me of a Tommy's type chili (CA folks know what I'm talking about). It had plenty of spices in it and had a great flavor and texture. I really enjoyed it! The mustard and onions worked well too and the bun was super soft. Great snap to the dogs, too! These 2 dogs were mighty fine!Fries- Fresh cut fries! They were salted perfect, fried perfect and flat out some of the best hand cut fries I have had in quite some time. Decent sized portion, too!After I was done with my meal, I was going back to the Coke machine to get a refill for the road. I ran into the owner again and he asked me how everything was and gave me a fist bump. I can't remember a time when I received such great customer service at a place...seriously! I will be back just because of that! Great dogs, great fries and amazing hospitality make this a joint I can definitely see myself coming back to eventually. More...

Legit Detroit Coneys. Eat with Faygo Rock N' Rye. Detroit Coney's are legendary in D town. Hot dogs are good quality with Detroit's own take on Coney chili. Fast and friendly service and a great way to get in touch with your inner Midwestern. Casual fast food environment. More...
I love this place of coarse it remind me of home I hardly ever get to have a coney dog an since they are in the valley I been loving it ! They have better made chip vernors and Faygo pops! I'm so excited I'm trying the double burger first time here for the burger! I can definitely recommend the coney dog and coney fries! More...
I'm a proud Michigander who has lived all over the country. I'm always in search of Detroit style coney, and rarely have I found any place outside of the great mitten that can even come close. Luckily, I've stumbled across Detroit Coney Grill in Tempe. I ate here for the first time this week and it's the real deal! Faygo pop(not soda), Vernors, and Better Made are all well represented here, but the story is the coney dog! First off, they get the chili right, and if you're a fellow Michigander, you know the difference. The dogs have natural casings that snap but aren't chewy, and the buns are steamed. I had a coney dog, chili cheese fries and Rock N Rye, spent less than $10, and came away with my faith in humanity restored! I plan on becoming a regular and brining my family soon. More...
Love this place. Moved to Arizona 10 years ago and missed coney dogs and Better Made chips ever since. Along comes the Coney Grill with authentic Detroit style food and brands. As long as the doors are open I will be a customer of this establishment. Awesome owners. Customers are unlike any other place as they often start conversations amongst themselves. Guess we are all just proud to be from the great city of Detroit. More...
love your coneys and fries. just like being back in the mitten. love Detroit but grew up closer to flint so im used to flint style. next time im close to downtown will stop by. More...
Good hotdogs I from New York we know our food. Friendly establishment would bring my co-workers to dine in among mostly male client tel. Clean got food fast fresh made fries. More...
Awesome service the owner is extremely friendly and makes sure things are done right! Awesome coney dogs and burgers. Definitely check this place out when in the Phoenix area.
Wait. Yelp told me this place had Faygo AND Vernors. It's TRUE! They have a fridge of Faygo. Coney and chili cheese fries were delicious! Love the atmosphere. It's like a little bit of the D transported to AZ. More...
Great foodGreat service!This review? You're earned it!5 starsThats your qualityAm writing lyrics?Yea, ur on to me!Motivated byMy chili cheese fryHand ground beefOnions make me crySo I cry I riverCuz the coney's great!Only wish my mouth were bigger...I'd Eat the damn plate! Lol! More...
Thank you guys for bringing the great taste of Detroit to Arizona. I was in Phoenix for three days and ate there twice. I felt like I was back home on Lafayette Street. Please bring one to Tucson.
Delicious! Friendly staff. Quick lunch service. Good Food. Good priceI got the gyro. Flavourful & Juicy
Had two coney dogs and cheese fries. It taste just like they do in the D! Coming from Scottsdale and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's used to the coneys in Detroit and surrounding areas. Food was amazing!
Hands down the best cheese fries in Arizona. The staff are extra friendly and attentive as well :)
Showed up during an off time. Only one other couple in restaurant. I ordered the 2 cony combo special with upgrade to chili cheese fries. I will admit the dogs were pretty good, chili was solid as well. But the star of the show is the fries. I usually do NOT like fresh cut fries, but these are AWESOME.Suck on that IN-AND-OUT. The meal was a bit on the pricy side.. $10 for 2 dogs and fries with a almost $3 up charge for chili and cheese. I guess they have to charge extra to make up for the 50 napkins that are needed LOL.I am looking forward to trying other menu items. More...
Eat Here!! Just the best coneys! The place has character, great service, and great Coney Dogs. It's like brig back in the "D" - DETROIT! Always a favorite..
I've seen the sign a few times when I've been downtown. I just thought they were trying to ride on the Detroit name. Well I went in and except for the fact that it's not a long room, I'd have sworn I was back at Lafayette Coney island in Detroit. I got The special: 2 Coneys, fries and drink for 9.99. The dogs had the right snap. And for a dollar more I got a Vernors (in a glass bottle). They also sell Faygo (also in glass bottles) and I had a bag of Better Made chips. David and his crew are very friendly. And the map with the pins representing all the Detroiters who've been there is a nice touch. I'll definitely be back, although the one in Tempe is closer to my Mesa home. More...
