We travel from Missouri to Minnesota frequently and one of our favorite places to stop for a bite is The Flying Wienie. Food is good, the atmosphere is, what can I say, old garage, but very enjoyable. Owners and staff are very friendly. We may see you there sometime!

I've only had their Chicago dogs and gyros. Both are great, but the Chicago dogs are as good as anything in Chicago. A great dog on a steamed poppy-seed bun, mustard, banana peppers, fluorescent green relish, salt and a pickle spear. Definitely get the fries with it.

Family weekend getaway ( wife husband 4 kids) .Got information online about this unusual looking building. Stopped for lunch at 11am in a Friday. 1 car on the lot abd we thought maybe they were closed. Almost didnt stop. Glad we did. They got rushed about 1120am. While it looks a bit rundown outside the food was great. Gyro and... More

They primarily serve Chicago Dogs, but the do have many other sandwiches. My favorite thing is their French Fries. You order at the counter and the food service is fairly fast. Just a good local place for a quick lunch.

Waited for service, then waited for 30 minutes while the rest of the customers were served. Service is poor. Food was sub par. Never going back.

This is just about the only place in Cedar Rapids where you can get a good Chicago style hot dog. They have plenty of other good stuff like gyros and Italian beef. I stick to mostly their hot dogs and gyros which are both simply delectable. The location can be a bit suspect and the inside of the restaurant isn't... More

Not a lot of fine dining in the city of 5 smells. This isn't fine dining by any means, but it's a niche place that is good. The all beef dogs are great and you can get lots of good toppings on them. The flight decor is cool and the maps are neat to look at.

Had to go here first thing after returning from Florida to have my favorite lunch, the right sampler. Tons of good dining in Panama City Beach but nothing comparable to the rib sampler.

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
