    it has a decent snap to it.

      will do, I have just the beef chili cheese dogs in the past.

        thinking the thoughts of a lunatic or dope fiend, i once thought i'd be "healthier" by eating a turkey dog w/chili.
        it tasted very good.

          Is that sort of like when I go to Fatburger and order a veggie burger topped w chili, cheese, and guacamole ?????

    2. How about Fab Hot Dog in Reseda? I thought they had the same dogs? haven't been by in over six months.

        Nope. Definitely not the same as Wf. The only ones that actually were the same was the Wien truck, which is now defunct too.

      2. Every time I read this headline, I just see WTF. As far as i am concerned, it apples completely to turdy dogs.

          WF = The Wiener Factory.

          My bad.

        2. Ya know, someone needs to put together a Kickstarter to get Wiener Factory open again. *I'd* kick in. Never found a better chili cheese dog, and they were so sweet, they started putting an extra dog in mine for free.

            Sad as it is, It won't happen. Nobody got inside information except possibly the folks from Fab who were friends with Kevin from WF. (Joe from FAB told me Kevin gave him the name of his suppliers after he closed down.) Joe could never give out any information because of the possible competition. Kevin talked about reopening but as we know, it never happened. He had other things to keep him going. What is interesting is that at least in the beginning of FAB opening up they seemed to have the same dogs and polish dogs as WF. Now people think the dogs are different so maybe Joe adjusted the recipe.

              Check Schreiner's in Montrose. they have Polish dogs and Turkey Franks. Papa Cantella makes the turkey dogs for Tommy's.

              1. re: SIMIHOUND

                Nah, none of them are at all like the Wiener Factory.

                1. re: kevin

                  There are only 3 maybe 4 places that smoke sausages and dogs locally. Are you sure the Polish are not from Schreiners? Have you had the turkey dogs from Schreiners?

                  1. re: Burger Boy

                    Burger Boy has a point. Schreiners makes sausages for many LA places that feature them as their "own." And their chicken breakfast sausages at Dish? SO good!

            2. Fabs has the exact spicy polish that WF used to have. That might be a starting point for exploration...
