Flint Style Coney's Finally in the Valley

Just found out that Joan's Kitchen, on the S.E. corner of N. Scottsdale Road and McKellips, will be serving real Koegel's Vienna's with Flint style coney sauce. New owner is originally from the Flint area and has recreated his own version of Angelo's original coney sauce. Their new menu says this is available "Saturday's ONLY, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM". Phone number is 480-946-1849.

      1. Very weird, I know I posted a reply to this thread a few days ago, maybe it was on another board? anyway . . .

        I am from MI and am infinitely familiar w/ coneys found all over the metro Detroit area. But what is a "Flint style" coney?

            "Flint-style" refers to the type of Coney dog that is served in Coney Island restaurants and diners in Michigan. A true Flint style Coney is a Koegels hot dog served on a steamed bun with Coney sauce, onions and mustard only. The key is that Flint style must use the dry, loose meat Coney sauce NOT red sauce or chili sauce and NO beans or sauer kraut. If the dog is served with chili then it’s just a generic Coney dog, Chili dog or in Michigan a Detroit style dog.
