Michigan’s Best Local Eats: Coney Land serves robust, flavorful Detroit-style hot dogs
MUSKEGON, MI - From Detroit-style Coney dogs to fresh ice cream creations, Coney Land has been a community favorite in the Muskegon area since it reopened in 2007. Owners Jeanette and Ron Morin took over Coney Land after the previous owners, who originally opened the business in 1987, closed it for a couple of years. Now the classic spot sits in Muskegon, remodeled back into an ice cream shop and restaurant. “The place looks like a traditional ice cream shop, but with multiple picnic tables and a large playground area for kids,” Morin said. Another best seller is the chocolate malt, available with hard or soft serve ice cream.mlive.com
