We recently shared our go-to coney spots and asked you to send your favorites.

  • After reading your responses, a clear favorite emerged.

David Little: "Favorite coney island: Lafayette Coney Island."

Cheryl McCarron: "How is it possible that none of you picked Lafayette Coney as the best? I’m flabbergasted, dismayed and ready to start a literal food fight! There's no better way to start Opening Day or close out a long night than with a coney from Lafayette."

Ken Droz: "When I worked downtown, I wasn't a season ticket holder at Lafayette for nothing, once eating there three times in a 24 hour period β€” lunch, dinner, and post-bar relief."

πŸ’­ Our thought bubble: We tried to stay away from the American/Lafayette debate, but you just wouldn't let us. Our favorite between the coney neighbors β€” located next door to each other on West Lafayette Boulevard β€”is pictured above. Can you guess where they're from?
