5. The coney sustained the auto industry and vice versa
Obvious, right? Well yeah, when you consider the Motor City was booming and people needed quick, cheap lunches. A meaty, filling snack under $1 fit the bill.

6. Coneys are remarkably healthy for you
A coney dog from National Coney Island contains approximately 490 calories. Comparatively, a Big Mac contains 563. See? Healthy! That’s why you should always order two.
