Coney Island Steak (DTW Specific)

Has anybody ever ordered a Steak from a Coney Island? I did it once from Bravo Coney Island,
Auburn and MLK, Pontiac MI.) It was on the low side of mediocre but I wanted a steak and I don't have a car, (maybe this spring.) I'd stick to the hot dogs and Gyros.

Since there are a lot of Coney's in the Detroit area maybe some of them can make an okay steak.

    Ok, I'll bite. While this is probably the weirdest topic I've ever seen and I'm almost certain this is some strange attempt at sarcasm...

    You're almost certainly better off walking to your local grocery store and buying your own steak. Cheaper and better quality.

      Are you serious? I would imagine the best of steaks at a coney would be equal to that of Denny's or Big Boy, maybe worse!

      As rcloud mentioned, you would be better off walking to the grocery store..anything there would be better!

        Well, I thought about it and I guess this question is legit. When I lived in Novi, the local butcher shop Jack's, supplied meat to a lot of different restaurants in the area. One of the them was Great Lakes Coney on Grand River at 10 mile. I bet you could get a decent steak there.

          The only Coney Island that I would trust with a fine piece of beef or fish is Christine's Cuisine in
          Ferndale.

            Aw, come on, RS: while Christine's Cuisine is hardly anywhere near high-falootin', I'd hardly condemn them into "Coney Island" territory...and it's not like I'm their biggest fan or anything. Aren't they better than that category? It sure sounds like you already think so. I might put them more into a polish/ethnic place, but a Coney? Do they even serve coneys there?

              I *think* so ... but their menu is not on-line.

              My two go-to places in fashionable Ferndale are Christine's and Fly Trap.

            Hmmm, you'd think they'd have something edible for steak and eggs, but seriously I would NEVER order a steak

            But it does remind me of the Seinfeld where George ordered Clams Casino from the coffeeshop and got sick (the backwards Sue Ellen Mischke--the Oh Henry braless candy bar heiress--wedding in India episode). They tasted a little funky :)
