Old Shillelagh to host Food Wars' coney dog showdown

The legendary local rift between Lafayette Coney Island and American Coney Island will take the national stage again this week when the two downtown Detroit restaurants square off at the Old Shillelagh in Greektown for filming of the Travel Channel's popular "Food Wars" program. The restaurants have already been the subject of the Travel Channel's "Man Vs. Food" show, but this time, locals get a chance to cast their vote on who is the real King of Coneys in town.

So, if you're anxious to pledge your allegiance to one coney over the other, and you aren't against being shown on TV with a glob of chili dripping down your chin, stop by the Old Shillelagh Friday, March 12 at 5 p.m.
