This place needs a massive cleaning. The cobwebs hang down ready to drop in the food. It used to be such a great place and the food was delicious but that was ten years ago. Now I walked in and walked back out.

Food is cooked as you order and fries are hand cut as opposed to a package! Prices are reasonable. Decor leaves a bit to be desired-but you are there for the food!

If you miss the Flying Wienie you missed Cedar Rapids! God looks down with favor on this place because in the 500 year flood of 2008 the water didn't touch it! The owner, John, makes your dining experience unforgetable. Come have a gyro, Chicago dog, or ribs! Your kids will love the place!

I eat at the Wienie once or twice a month. They make their own brats, Italian sausage plus other items. The brats & sausage come on a 6 inch hot dog bun and hang over the ends by about 3 inches. It is not the biggest place so get there early during the lunch hour. There will be lines but... More
