Twice a year, Koegels sends down a truck to select cities on the East coast, including The Villages. It's coming again this Sunday (March 8) from noon to 3:00 PM at the Towneplace Suites hotel up by Spanish Springs. You can get their hot dogs (including Viennas with natural casings), ring bologna, etc. and they usually have Coney sauce. We buy from them at every visit and have turned a number of our friends and neighbors down here into Koegels Hot Dog Snobs (because they are simply the best hot dogs you can buy!).

Can't help you with Buddy's pizza but we have found locations of Jets Pizza (founded in Sterling Heights) as close as Altamonte Springs.

Be patient, lol. Wife and I are planning on moving there in about a year and a half. I owned and operated 2 Detroit Style pizza places in Tampa. Still make it weekly, and yes I make it at home, on the grill. I'll show you how. Maybe we'll start a club...

There was a stand / tent in front of Home Depot on 441 promoting Detroit Coneys. I haven’t tried myself but may be an option.

I really miss Buddy's Pizza and also Jets. I can't find anyone that makes a pizza close to Buddys--and I go to Orlando quite often. Piesano's is similar to Jets, Rural King has all the Faygo flavors, and you can find Vernors at Publix. The guy at Home Depot does not have the Lafayette chili all the time, but he does put it on his sign when available. Let us know if you find pizza similar to Buddys.

Was this the one near the brewery? If so, is it still there?

I have been here since 2011. I am from the Detroit area, Livonia to be exact. I have not found anything close to a Buddy's pizza nor a good coney island hot dog. Lots of dogs they put chili on, but not the same as you would get in Detroit or the suburbs--at least not that I have found. Good luck. When you find such goodies, please post! Welcome to TV!

You had my mouth watering and I was ready to hop in to the car when I saw there were Slim Jim's (Elias Bros. Big Boy)in Palm Harbor at Detroit Coney Island. I checked the website of the place and there are no Slim Jim's on the menu. Did I miss something?
