A new restaurant is having a soft opening this weekend in the Ford City neighbourhood of Windsor, Ontario.

Located at 1009 Drouillard Road, Ford City Coney & Ice is having a soft opening and will be open their doors Friday, July 21, 2023 from 12pm to 9pm. They will also be open the same hours on Saturday and Sunday.

They won’t be launching their full menu quite yet as they ease into things, but their bringing back a touch of an era long ago. Ford City Coney & Ice will offer drinks reminiscent of the early to mid 1900s. This includes, phosphate sodas, New York egg creams, milkshakes, floats, and yes, a Boston Cooler with Vernor’s on tap.

You also absolutely need to try their house made birch beer and sarsaparilla.

Eventually, guests will be able to create their own custom soda with over 40 flavours, along with creams, purees and real lemon and lime.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Coney joint without the hot dogs!

The restaurant will make their own Coney sauce made with AAA Canadian beef and no fillers. The hot dog itself will be an artisan all beef hot dog made just for them.
