Anything here in TV is sub par.

The deep dish pizza club? I'm in!

For me, it's Tony Packo's (I know it's from Toledo, but worth the drive)

If folks miss their previous towns/cities junk food so much, why move in the first place?
There is plenty of poor food available in TV as well!

The hot dog salesman at Home Depot serves up Detroit Coney Dogs on Saturday. They’re not bad... not Leo’s or Kerbys, but fine. We haven’t found anything to compare to our Rochester Hills Buddy’s pizza.

Yes, they do have the Big Boy there with both the Frisch sauce and the original Big Boy Sauce. It is not on the website menu but is on the menu at the restaurant. You can phone them to verify all the other items that are offered. It is almost as good as going back to the old days in Detroit. It's worth the trip if you really have the Michigander Craze!

Oh you didn’t miss anything. It is on a special menu that they give to you. We were there two weeks ago and my husband got one. It is a little bigger than the ones at big boy but my husband said it tastes the same. My brother got the big boy and it was the same except he had asked for a roll without seeds since he can’t have seeded buns. Give them a call. They didn’t have the bumpy cake at the time we were there. I think that menu on line is from when they were in Clearwater beach and the place was small. This is what a bumpy cake is just in case you’re not from .Michigan. Also a picture of the slim jim

I buy frozen concentrated coney sauce in small tubes at Kroger’s while in Michigan, wrap them in newspaper and plastic bags. No problem traveling with them in checked suitcases. I believe they are made by Lafayette or National. Each tube makes enough for a bunch of dogs. I am from Bloomfield Hills and Dryden Mi. I ask Michigan visitors to bring some when they visit.
Had a small hobby farm and also a party tent. Every year when the sweet corn would come in, we would invite 70 to 80 people. We cooked the corn in large stainless steal milk cans over a fire and had a crockpot of butter for dipping. I would buy a couple “blocks” of coney sauce from Gordon’s restaurant supply and the hotdogs from the Koegle factory near Flint. A couple kegs of beer completed the menu. Corn picked that morning, coney dogs and beer (coke for kids and non drinkers)
Detroit coney dogs are not chili dogs.
