My history with dining at Wienerschnitzel goes all the way back to when I was a kid. There are plenty of memories, as I'm sure there are with many of you. They used to hire me to do personal appearances during the early days of my radio career at KROQ. I did live on air phone ins, and had listeners show up to do whacky things for Der Food, but I can't remember exactly what they were. Maybe some of you reading this article can refresh my memory. What I do recall through the decades is that the cuisine has stayed consistently good. This is not your typical unhealthy fast food chain. It is quality, and it is creative. The company is not corporate. My recommendation is you go into your nearest Wienerschnitzel, and try what appeals to you. I promise you won't be disappointed. The menu offers a tremendous amount of variety. Until the other day, I hadn't eaten at Wienerschnitzel for quite a while. My thought was to sample a number of different menu offerings by taking just a few bites. Instead, the "sampling" turned into a major Gorge Fest!

Everything I ordered was so good that I ate it all, and I'm not embarrassed to admit it! What a feast! I'm getting hungry just writing about it! Here's what I devoured : The AppetizerThe Magnificent Corn Dog at $1.29 dipped in Ketchup and Mustard...the best; Main Course 1A A Sirloin Blue Cheese and Bacon Dog nestled inside a super fresh poppy seed hot dog bun at $3.59 (the blue cheese is crumbled and melted on top with strips of bacon surrounding the sirloin dog)...Smothered again in Ketchup and Mustard, it tasted phenomenal. *The Sirloin Dogs are new menu items being tested at the Newport Beach store only; Main Course 1B An order of Pastrami Chili Cheese Curly Fries at $3.59 (the same item with regular fries is only $3.19)...so good, with ample Ketchup and Mustard once again; and Dessert Cake Batter Dipped Vanilla Ice Cream Soft Serve Cone at $1.29 off the Tastee Freez Menu Believe it or not, that's the small cone...Derlicious! Amazingly, I could have eaten more!

I like corn dogs. I always get a Chicago dog and a chocolate dipped cone.

I always remember going to Weinerschnitzel as a kid. I was a bit of a sick kid, and my mom always used it as a treat when I didn't act up and cry at the doctors. I always got the corn dog and god it was always good. To this day, I still like to go and have a corn dog now and then, it always brings me memories sitting in the car, eating the Corn Dog, and a chili cheese dog and forgetting how much I hated the doctor.

I remember going to Wienerschnitzel with my Dad and sister after we went to the park. We always got the same items every time. I would get a hot dog with ketchup, my sis would get one with mustard, and dad would get two chili dogs. Every time! Those were fun summers. We were pretty predictable back then. My sister and I would probably branch out more now and try new things, but I bet Dad would still get the two chili dogs every time!

My favorite memory was when I was about 12 years old ( I am 37 now). My mom and I had a "Girls" day. She took me to Wienerschnitzel for lunch. I kept hearing this dog barking in agony, sounded like it was IN the storage room. My mom told me that the food was made with dog meat. I was horrified and super grossed out. When we got our order I opened up the chili dog from its wrapper and at that moment (and every time from then) I did not care ONE BIT! Ate the crap out of my chili dogs :) Left happy...and still do!

Favorite memory of Wienerschnitzel wasn't at a restaurante per se, but at the Chili Fries eating contest at the Queen Mary in 2006.  Never forget seeing Sonya Thomas down over 8lbs of chili fries to win it over Joey Chestnut.  All those sexy fries sticking out of her mouth looked like she was going for the cigarette smoking world record.  Of course the audience was treated to 1lb tubs of chili fries afterward and we all wondered in awe, how she was able to down over 8 of them!
