Earlier this summer, America's weatherman Al Roker visited the Motor City to film a segment for "Today" live from the Detroit Riverfront. 

While he was in town, he spoke about visiting a few local businesses for his streaming show, "Family Style with Al Roker." In June, he stopped by two coney dog restaurants, the 105-year-old American Coney Island and the much newer Chili Mustard Onions, a vegan diner in Brush Park. 

NBC’s Today weatherman, Al Roker and WDIV anchor Rhonda Walker poses with fans after Walker’s live interview with Al Roker at Cullen Plaza Detroit Riverfront.

"Is Coney Island a food or a place? In Michigan, it’s both," Roker said on social media this week to promote the episode. "Let's visit the Motor City and dive into the age old debate: does ketchup belong on a coney hot dog?"

Roker also visited the Metropolitan Baking Co. in Hamtramck. The 77-year-old bakery makes most of the buns for Detroit's coney dogs.
