“Quick Lunch”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Stopped there to try a weekday lunch at most Coney Islands have great food. This was about 3 in the afternoon midweek and the parking lot was half full. I took that as a good sign. Went in and they had at least eight or more daily specials. I chose the kabob and rice. It was very good. Their pricing is more than competitive. Bright and clean and a good waitstaff. They advertised some very inexpensive breakfast specials and they have great pricing on their regular menu. It has quite an extensive selection of American and Greek dishes. No greek deserts though that I noticed. Did think that odd. Will make that a lunch stop while in that area in the future. It appears to be an old fast food restaurant that was converted but is nice inside.

“Very busy place”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

Before there was Tripadvisor, a good rule of thumb for finding a good place to eat was to look at the parking lot and see if it's full of cars. That is always the case here (always busy), and for good reason, the values here are very good. $1.19 coney dogs with real Koegel dogs (your choice of Detroit of Flint style). $2.99 for a filling breakfast special (before 11:00am) is also a great deal. This is one of the few places in the area you can get fried clams cooked the right way (not overcooked and brownish). The desserts are great here also (if you've saved room). You pay your bill at the register by the kitchen pass-through window, and I'm always amazed at the action of the cooks in the kitchen beyond, and how they can keep up with the incredible volume of orders.

“Heck, yes! I'd go again.”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

We stopped in for a light meal and I was disappointed--that we were not prepared for a full meal. Prices right, food and service wonderful. This is not a fancy restaurant, just a VERY GOOD restaurant. And that can be hard to find. BTW, the rice pudding IS excellent.

“Good Food and Value”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Good overall quality of food for a family style restaurant. Everything is made fresh. The cheesecake in the display case looks awesome but I'm always to full after a meal to try it. Menu has many options along with daily specials. They serve Flint style coney islands (along with Detroit style). Waitresses are always very friendly and patient. Clean and spacious environment.
