Walt's Original Coney Island

Ranked #9 of 41 for Best Coney Island

Walt's Original Coney Island 3425 Highland Rd Waterford MI

Tips from Voters

  • I've been to quite a few coneys. This one always stands out to me because of the steamed bun and particular flavor of chili (also the place has a very tasty smell that's been seasoned to perfection over the last 75 years). Now don't expect a ritzy experience, but expect a hole-in-the-wall shack with everything just scraping by to serve up fine dogs. The owner is a charming sort of guy named Les, and you can B.S. with him all you want, since he's there 19 times out of 20.

  • The decor of the place is a slice of time covering all decades of it's existence. They still have an old flyer up advertising a free game of Space Invaders with a hot dog and a drink! Just don't expect to sit in the Kid Rock reserved booth.
