where to buy vienna beef hot dogs?
Does anyone out there know where one can score some Vienna beef dogs in NYC? How about poppy seed hot dog buns? My neighbor from Chicago is having a cook-out in a couple of weekends and has been talking up these things. I see that there are large packs of dogs/buns available on the Vienna website, but it would be nice if some homesick Chicagoan knew of a local store that carried them. Any help would be appreciated.
Shake Shack and a stand out in Linden make their Chicago-style hotdogs with Vienna Beef, but for the home chef, you're going to have to import your own sausages. No store in the tri-state area seems to carry the brand. Same with poppy seed buns. Which is why I currently have 2 lbs. of Vienna Beef in my freezer and a bottle of poppy seeds to sprinkle on my buns.
