Wienerschnitzel "5 for 5" Anniversary Deal

Five chili dogs for $5.00.

The Los Angeles area TV channels are saturated with this Wienerschnitzel promotion.

OK, I have never been to a Wienerschnitzel, but they claim that they have been in business for sixty years.

I am missing out on something worth making a special trip?

  1. Allow me to put it this way: If Wienerschitzel had been open 24 hours a day, it might have given JITB tacos a run for the money after the bars closed back when that kind of thing was important to me.

      1. I suspect Wienerschnitzel chili dogs are one of those things that you have to have grown up with: I haven't had one in years, since I moved out of their market area, and I occasionally find myself missing them terribly, but at the same time, when I *did* live in their market area, I ate there approximately once every two years.

        1. re: Jenny Ondioline

          I didn't grow up with them, but a chili cheese dog with onions from Wienerschnitzel suits me just fine occasionally. Their fries could be improved though.

        2. Actually the chili is pretty good for hot dawg or hamburger applications.
