What makes this cheesecake so special?  Unlike most cheesecake's you'll find, this one has no crust but beyond that, good luck trying to find out any details.  We spoke to Paul's Coney Island owner while trying to guess which cheeses where used in his recipe and all we got was a smile.  This recipe has been a family secret for decades and I'm sorry to say, the secret's not going to be out any time soon.

Stop in any time for a piece of this delectable dessert and enjoy one of their great appetizers and entrees...and don't forget to try an authentic Flint style coney dog while you're there.  Both restaurants have cozy atmospheres, great service and fabulous food!  For years, Paul's Coney Island has been committed to providing quality food at reasonable prices. Their fresh, wholesome menu features a variety of home-style favorites.  Paul's Coney Island offers the taste of home, the food you grew up eating and the kind of food you'd make every day if you could.

The Starlite Diner and Coney Island - A Treasured Flint Icon Since 1966

Welcome to The Starlite Diner and Coney Island - A Flint Treasure Since 1966

My husband and I had breakfast last Saturday at The Starlite Diner.  The place was absolutely packed!  We sat down, ordered our breakfast and were eating inside 15 minutes.  Did I mention the service was not only incredibly fast but also very friendly and courteous?  Did I mention that besides arriving at our table quickly, our breakfast was delicious?  I really can't say enough about how great my first experience was dining at The Starlite. During the week, they have amazing breakfast specials that fit nicely into even the tightest budgets.  The weekend breakfast fare was just as reasonably priced and clearly made from scratch with the freshest of ingredients.  As Michigan breakfast spots go, this one made my top 10!

Moving on to lunch...  When I went into the Starlite Diner and Coney Island for the initial photo shoot, I was introduced to something called "The Working Man's Lunch".  How do you feel about an authentic, Flint-style coney dog, a famous Starlite cheeseburger, fries and a softdrink all for $5.50?  I don't believe I've ever seen anything like it in my life. After the shoot that day, I was encouraged to sample this "Working Man's Lunch" and I have rave reviews.  The authentic Flint-style coney made with a Koegel's hotdog and Starlite's own coney sauce was served on a steamed bun with mustard and onions was fantastic.  The Starlite cheeseburger, made with burger ground earlier that morning, was one of the best burgers I've ever had.  This lunch special at that incredible price is nothing short of spectacular!

I've not experienced dinner at this 24-hour establishment but have every reason to believe that the dinner selections are just as delicious and reasonably priced.  The Starlite Diner has a fun and interesting atmosphere with retro decor and warm, attentive wait staff.  Sit in a big comfortable booth, at the snack bar or in your car at the drive-thru window and get the same great value and fantastic food!

Steeped in tradition, this family-owned coney island style restaurant has been a Flint treasure since 1966.  You're always treated like family when you walk through the doors of this iconic restaurant located near the intersection of N. Center Road and Davison Road in Burton.  Famous for its breakfasts, burgers and coneys, the Starlite Diner is also the perfect choice to cater your next event.  Give them a try for your next important occasion.
