When I went to Philadelphia, I was all fired up about getting a real cheesesteak from one of the original joints. Then I discovered that they prefer to put Cheez Whiz on it and was immediately crestfallen.
Traditionally, Detroit coneys do not have cheese (see picture posted previously). The better places have shredded cheese if requested, but it will be 10% the amount on a Cincinnati coney.
I prefer Cincinnati's coney by a slim margin, but you're in heaven either way. It's difficult to deny that the quality of each component of the Detroit coney is superior to its Cincinnati counterpart, I'm just a sucker for the cheese like the rest of you.
I will however say that Detroit chili is much better on French fries. The chili actually adheres to the fries rather than creating a runny, soggy potato mess...
