My dad has been raving about this place for so many years I finally, on a recent trip to town, took him up on his offer to take me and my husband there. We were both thoroughly impressed! The service was so fast, and they were polite even though we took several minutes to decide what we wanted (they have... More

For many families, eating at Milwaukee Wiener House is a tradition. We love the hotdogs and the chili. The new location is nice. They did a great job making it new, but kept a lot of familiar things the same.

Stopped her for my birthday on our way to visit the n ew Hard Rock casino and was pleasantly surprised. My wife mother in-law and I were all able to eat, have chips and drinks for $18 at lunch. That is a pretty good deal. My wife, not being a hot dog fan, got their hamburger. She said ti was... More

I know this is a Sioux City tradition of about 100 years (in a new location), but it really only serves a fair hotdog. Some of the ambience lost in the move, and ambience was really the only point to me when the dog was and is only fair.

Having grown up in Sioux City, one just knows that there is no place like Milwaukee Weeny. Because of the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, there is now a brand new place-- the third location in my lifetime, Fortunately, the venue has changed in 50 plus years, but the quality and consistency are the same as always. If you... More

The hot dogs are not all beef. Not grilled. Bums are not hot. Just like buying a package of hotdogs coming home and cooking them on the stove. Was very disappointed after hearing how good it was.

OK, the Milwaukee Wiener House is not bad. We enjoyed a decent Hot Dog lunch, for a reasonable price. I wouldn't mind returning, but I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again. It's got Hot Dogs, and a few variations on the dog, a few other grill items, and some nostalgic furnishings, but it just doesn't... More

I have been going here since I was a child. This is a no frills, family run hot dogs place. It's awesome. The hot dogs with chili and onions are awesome. Can still get soda in a glass bottle. Owners/staff are very friendly and have perfected the dog! Love, love, love this place.

If you love hotdogs and chili, this is the place for you. Or if you love old, nostalgic eateries, this is also the place for you. My grandparents went on one of their first dates here back in the day...and that's pretty cool to me. I've never been super impressed with the food, but that could be because a hotdog... More

This place has a lot of history as coworkers we quick to question why I have never been. Their new location takes a lot of that away, but it's very clean and in the perfect spot in town. The dogs are small but very inexpensive; the buns were fresh and soft. The chili has a very unique flavor with the... More
