        FWIW, that's called roadside vernacular architecture. There's a variation of this (the hot dog's on top of the building) at Hollywood & Western called Thai Express or something like that.

            But I miss the Wiener Factory even more, and it some ways it would almost be your eponymous restaurant, Wiener.

            Have you tried the Wiener Factory ever ???????????

              Yes I loved their mild polish and would eat there often.

                :)

                Sounds good.

                And how about those homemade knishes topped with a boatload of chili and a fistfuls of that exceptional shredded cheese ??????????

                Damn, I really missed that place. :( I'm almost tearing up right now.

                      It makes me despondent, depressed, and downcast too at the mere fact that I can't go anymore.

                          None, I think.

                          But if I had to say it would be a: Carney's chili cheese dog, which still has that bite via a natural casing, and the dog ruptures and all those garlicky juices comes flooding.

                              Portillo's right ????

                              I've only been once but once I start eating dog meat again I'll give it a whirl.

                              There's the location in Buena Park, or is it La Palma, near Knott's Berry Farm, right ????
