Anyone know where I can buy Vienna Beef Hot Dogs?
A bit far but they do sell them by the pound. ($7.50/lb) If you really want them they can be found in Irvine, more like Costa Mesa/Santa Ana but it is considered Irvine. Only problem is this place caters to business lunch crowds and is only open during the week. It is always a big problem for me.
The last time I emailed them they were less than helpful. They don't seem to have a clue about selling to southern Californians. Right now their 'dogfinder' is back 'under construction'.
IIRC the only place they volunteered was Jerry's Famous Deli. Ouch.
Buried on the web site is their local address:
6033 Malburg Way
Vernon, CA 90058
phone: (800) 733-6063
There used to be a factory store in Vernon. I know it's gone, now; but, Vienna Beef has a warehouse in Vernon. Our church choir used to ohold a St. Patrick's dinner/dance and I used to purchase Vienna Corned Beef, in bulk (60 to 100 lbs.) If you have the freezer space, or sufficient number of sharers, I'm pretty sure you could buy a box of hot dogs. Cash only sales. There also used to be a Vienna Beef Chicago Hot Dog stand on Harbor Boulevard, south of Disneyland. And now, there is Just Dogs on Beach Boulevard in Westminster just north of the 405 in the PEP Boys parking lot.
Just drove by a liquor store/deli last night at the corner of Torrance Bl. and Western Ave. in Torrance that had a sign saying they sold all manner of Vienna meats, with the Vienna Beef logo displayed next to it. Didn't go in but maybe someone in that area would know.
