Lola's  Coney Island

Lola's Coney Island - Chicago

At Lola’s Coney Island, Chicagoans are now learning what Michiganders have known for many years: the Coney Island hot dog (also called a Detroit-style hot dog) is a world-class wiener. Windy Citizens love our Chicago dogs, no doubt, whether Depression style, with just mustard, onions, sport peppers and maybe relish, or fully dressed, with all that plus fresh tomatoes, celery salt, and most definitely relish. The Coney dog ups the ante on all that by adding chili adorned with chopped onion and mustard.

In March 2019, Jesse Fakhoury opened Lola’s Coney Island, which seems to be the first outpost of Detroit’s favorite sausage in Chicago. There’s more on the menu that just hot dogs, however; as Eater explains, “Fakhoury is proud of his traditional burgers that feature quarter-pound patties made from beef from International Meats. He uses a secret seasoning and aioli on the 85-percent meat to 15-percent fat blend and tops it with Wisconsin cheddar.”

At Lola’s Coney Island, you can also have a classic Chicago or one done New York style with sauerkraut, onion and mustard. There’s also loose meat burger, a chicken pita called The Joey, and, on Fridays, lobster roll (not exactly a Michigan thing, but good). Accompany all this with awesome fries, lots salads and shakes – one made with Faygo, a Motor City fav.

This is a super-casual spot, way above the charming grittiness of Chicago’s classic hot dog stands like Gene and Jude’s and Jimmy’s Red Hots, but not a place you have to get spruced up to visit for a Coney Island dog, one of the sloppiest and most delicious of all the many ways to present the red sausage in a bun.
