Coney Dog Eating Contest
Saturday, February 1

If you're looking for the best Motor City Coney Dogs in the Valley, you'll find them at Detroit Coney Grill in Tempe. The small restaurant opened last year and serves Detroit Coneys, Detroit Looseburgers, and other road food of the Motor City. This Saturday the restaurant's owner David Najor is hosting a Coney Dog Eating Contest, where challengers will have 10 minutes to down as many dogs and they can. That means with chilli, mustard, and onions on top. No exceptions. The winner of the first ever contest will get his or her photo on the Wall of Fame, as well as a personalized "Champ" shirt. The cost to enter is $20 and contestants can register with Najor. Call 602-791-9978.
