American Coney Island has continued its tasty practices in Las Vegas by serving world-famous Coney Dogs at the D Las Vegas for seven years, its only location outside of Michigan. The beloved dish grew in popularity from the specially-seasoned, natural skin casing hot dog from Dearborn Sausage and its secret family “Coney Island Chili Sauce” recipe, which comes topped with mustard and chopped sweet onions.
