So I stopped into Linda's Place in St Clair Shores yesterday for my monthly 99 cent coney fix. While I was dismantling my meal, I was thinking that I've never been able to pick up one of Linda's Coney dogs in my hands to eat it. There's that much coney sauce slathered over the dog. Don't get me wrong it's a good hot dog, and the sauce is blissful schmered over the bun. But a knife and fork are required tools at this meal.
My question to chowhounds is: are your favorite coney dogs "finger food"? Or do you, as I have to; use a knife and fork to keep order on your plate--and not in your lap?
