Wienerschnitzel "5 for 5" Anniversary Deal

Gypsy Jan Mar 7, 2011 05:22 PM

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?

    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.

        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.

          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.

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