If you need a Gyro, give it a go

A co-worker and I had takeaway Gyros from here last week that were pretty OK. Plenty of meat, the meat was pretty good quality and taste. Pita was fresh. The sauce was plentiful, in fact I would have asked for a bit less or get it on the side as it gets very messy. Get plenty of napkins. They... read more

Everybody knows about the converted gas station with the airplane on top of the building. Most people go for the hotdogs, brats and gyro, but I particularly love their rib sampler. It comes with baked beans with ample rib meat in it and their yummy French fries. Often I have too take some home with me. The sampler is 3... More

This is a place I hit for lunch every time I'm in Cedar Rapids. The Brats, dogs, and gyros are great. The fries, make it almost to much to eat.

The Flying Wienie appears to be a converted "service station/garage" with a most unusual, old-fashioned atmosphere, and there is definitely nothing fancy about it. However, their hot dogs, Italian beef, and french fries are especially excellent, as are all the items we have tried here. If you sit outside, you will get a different view of Cedar Rapids than you... More

Kitschy and eclectic, The Wienie is a C.R. Legend. Best dogs outside of Chicago and dozens of varieties and combinations. Amazing staff.

I recently ate here and wasn't impressed. Lunch for 3 people was $28.00. I had 2 hotdogs which looked like slimjims on a bun. This place wouldn't make it in Chicago.

I have eaten here many times in the past but never had the chance to sit down and write about it and tell you all about my food experiences prior to this format. The food here cannot be beat. Most of it is made on-site and prepared fresh daily. I have tried nearly all their menu and I hope you... More

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.
