Good hotdogs - ask for them char-grilled! Place to go for a big tasty chicago style dog. The interior has a lot of interesting artifacts. We enjoy sitting in the casual dining area and looking around at all the stuff while we munch on our...More

The Chicago dogs and hand-cut fries at the Flying Weenie take me back to my childhood and teen years growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. The beef sandwiches, Italian sausages, burgers, and gyros are all delicious as well. I have wanted to order the...More

It is small and seating is limited but they have some decent dogs and fries. A fun place to grab a bite to eat.

I go to this place at least once a week. Really great hot dogs with all kinds of toppings, Burgers and gyros too. They hand cut their fries from actual potatoes and fry them up fresh. No frozen food here.

I'm always a bit skeptical to try foods that are known for in other cities. i.e. the Chicago hot dog. Flying Wienie, though, did not disappoint!

The Flying Weinie is hard to miss. I've drove by it over a hundred times probably and finally stopped in for a few hot dogs to go. I got a basic dog, and it was a great price. The bun was FRESH. Not toasted (which...More

I have eaten lunch here many times. I usually get the 1/4 pound big dog and fries and soda. The restaurant is in an old gas station decorated in airplane parts. It is a locally well known hangout for construction workers and tourists. The fries...More
