About this Business
From Our Editors
Since John Galardi opened the first Wienerschnitzel location in 1961, the brand has become something of an icon in parts of the country, boasting one of the earliest drive-throughs, partnering in an ad campaign with Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, and sponsoring popular dachshund races in various cities. But even as Wienerschnitzel has grown to more than 300 locations, the menu has remained charmingly simple. Its "world-famous" hot dogs include versions heaped in chili, wrapped in bacon, and topped with sauerkraut. Guests can customize their dogs with Angus beef franks and pretzel buns and order combo meals that pair them with chili cheeseburgers or corn dogs. Since 1999, the brand has been partnered with Tastee Freez, so it also serves that institution's famous ice-cream treats.
