A Vienna classic - you need to like chili dogs...

This place is a Vienna classic. It's a dive bar - but really fun if you like dive bars. Chili cheese dogs are great. Prices are reasonable. Years ago they had a reputation for horrible service - but the servers are actually nice now. It's a unique experience as you keep track of your tab and... read more

Older establishment with vintage atmosphere. Great hot dogs & chili. Menu has good other entre selection. Waitresses are quick & efficient. Only thing I don't like is having to self-serve sodas & iced tea, but then they sell a lot of cold beer & provide a cold mug upon request. Good for family/kids as owner/biz supports local youth sports. Good... More

Great place for chili dogs, cheese fries, and beer. Or just a beer. Food is good, basic pub grub. Great place to go after a soccer or baseball game - no one cares if you are grubby too. We also enjoy riding our bikes down the WO&D Trail to grab breakfast at Vienna Inn.

I have been going here on and off for over 20 years. Yes it is dumpy , yes the service has changed over the years but the one constant has been cold beers and great chili cheese dogs. Sometimes if you take your nose out of the air long enough, your eyes can adjust and see lots of colorful people... More

My husband and I always stop in here when we come to visit my brother. Yes, it's a dive. Yes, the food is greasy. And that's why we love it! Beer is always flowing and the hot dogs, burgers, and wings always hit the spot. We look forward to this place every year. A real old school gem!

As a Vienna resident, I figured that after ten years I would try this place that looks like a dive. The outside was nicer than the inside. The fries came in a cup, the chili dog I ordered without cheese but came with it even though the place was empty, the bathroom had a large step in front of it... More

This used to be the place to come for a good chili dog, fries and a cold beer! Just had a chili dog and fries with my daughter and it wasn't good. The place has always been on the rundown side with a little dirt, but it looks pretty bad all over. It sort of gave us both the creeps.... More

Reasonable prices and decent greasy food (e.g., wings, hamburgers, hot dogs, fries). Very old school.

Food, service and tap list are tops. The food is unassuming but consistently good. I often order the chili cheese dogs, and they are delivered hot and fresh from the bar (well-timed with your kitchen order). The staff are very quick to refill your beer, and you are encouraged to fill your own soft drink. The feel of the joint... More

I have nothing against dives. A great dive is a great find. I love hot dogs, but why would you boil your hot dogs if you didn't have to. This place is very average but it is considered an "institution" in Vienna. But the food is institutional. I am sure if you drink enough the food is fine, but it's... More
