New West Road Business Beginning to Take Shape

Some Trenton-Grosse Ile Patch users were disappointed to find out the nature of a new business coming to West Road.

A shiny new sign sits atop a former Burger King location on West Road near the border of Woodhaven and Trenton.

The building is currently being transformed into a new Wild Coney and Grill location.

Wild Coney & Grill locations in Southgate, Riverview and Wayne serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and are open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

An owner of the new restaurant could not be reached for a potential completion date.

Trenton-Grosse Ile Patch users had mixed feelings about the new business:

  • michelle: Well, we may have quite a few coney places around but I do love coney places. :-) I have not tried them out yet.
  • Stephanie Keffer: Healthy food options are something this area desperately needs, like pronto.
  • Tracy Loger: While I am happy to see a vacant building be occupied, I wish it were something other than a Coney Island. After all, as you said, there are already 2 very close to this one. I would much rather see a good Italian restaurant or something different from is already so close to home!! But......again, I am thankful somebody is trying to make something in an already built building instead of putting up another strip mall!!!!
  • cscharlt: Gross. Another unhealthy unremarkable restaurant choice added to downriver. At least since it's a "coney" it'll run the typical "coney" business course and be gone in 5 years. I echo the sentiments of Rick and Kathye that some sort of deli-style sandwich shop or alternative would bring much better variety to downriver.
  • jeanne: i would love to see a Bahama breeze come our way, and a Qdoba or Chipotle.

I've tried a lot of the Coney places around, but I prefer Wild Coney. I love their spinach and feta omelettes and their fish snack meals.

We need a Whole Foods downriver. We are missing out on new healthy choices.

I agree with Lori Czinski

I've been pondering with the idea of opening a Trader Joes type store with a healthy market section in the downriver area. I think the vacant Manns Kitchen store would be a great location. My daughter is always going to Ann Arbor for healthy alternatives. Why not downriver!
