We stopped for lunch based on a recommendation from the visitors center. We found the chili cheese dog was bland and had no beans. They did have Coke and IBC products for beverages. They did a good job bussing the tables as people left. They are located in the corner of the parking lot SW of the Hard Rock Casino.

Sign says it all. Looking for a quick bite or craving a chili dog? Then this is the right stop for you. Kids dug the retro sodas.

This was obviously a local favorite, it was fast and friendly but just average. Cool concept, very simple. I can see why locals would frequent it.

Milwaukee Wiener House has been around for may years. I remember back in 1949, as a little girl, going to the old location. Everytime I come to Sioux City this is the first place I go to eat. The dogs have their own unique flavor and the buns so soft they melt in your mouth! If you stop in for... More

We found the hot dogs to be average. Nothing special. Chili is a little bland. Fast friendly service though and clean restaurant. Lots of nostalgia on the walls and family atmosphere. Not a bad lunch stop off the highway but nothing to drive in special for.

Quick, friendly service. The hot dogs are great and the atmosphere is too. Cold soda's in a bottle - including diet creme soda. :-) Great, cheap, superb eats.

I read the reviews and was actually excited to grab a hot dog. The hot dogs were not all beef and the chili tasted like canned chili. The Wiener house was cute and you can see the hot dogs being grilled and put together. I love a good chili dog but this was not it.

This is always a favorite for lunch and my family from out of town always has to have this when they come back to town!
