The restaurant will celebrate its grand opening Saturday, Jan. 12. by offering free coney hot dogs to the first 50 customers (one per person) beginning at 9 a.m.

In the past several years, the 95-year-old iconic family-owned American Coney Island has expanded to the Detroit Zoo, Ford Field and most recently opened its first out-of-state location at The D Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
