“The most amazing hot dog you will ever have.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a gem of a place in the stunning Waterton Lakes National Park. Everything is fresh, organic and made to order. The day we visited they were featuring a local smoked cheddar sausage as well as the normal menu. The topping list is huge and what a treat it is to have crushed potato chips on such a delicious dog. The dogs and sausage we had were cooked perfectly and the rolls that are baked fresh each morning melted in our mouths. The sweet potato fries were just as delicious, crispy and tender - just perfect. All packaging here is bio-degradable so you may notice that your drink cup looks a little weird but far less impact to the environment. The only slight drawback is virtually no seating and long lines. We solved the problem by one of us getting the order and the other staying outside with the kids. We then took out food to a picnic spot a slight distance from the centre of town and enjoyed the best view with the best lunch.

“Start & End your Waterton Experience at WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

What can i say --- been enjoying their fare since they opened in 2010. WOW has become a part of my weekly Waterton Experience, Spring, Summer & Fall and is my favorite eatery in the park. The best hot dogs this side of New York City and the experience begins with the passion the two young owners / brothers display, leading a team of amazing family members and friends, each providing personal, consistently friendly service.
My fav menu item is the 1/4 pound Nathans dog, scored, grilled; crispy and juicy at the same time:) The locally made 100% Beef Smokie is a close second and the sweet potato fries, french fries, and home made dipping sauces round out my favorites.
Morning, noon, or night, WOW offers great, quick, comfort food. For morning people like me, they start at 7:00AM offering the best freshly squeezed orange juice, a very limited supply of thwe awesome freshly baked cinnamon sticky buns, and the other addition to their menu, Breakfast Dogs, comprising two locally made 10" breakfast sausages, grilled of course, and accompanied with scrambled eggs, grated cheddar cheese, and all the other fixins, you can ask for, delivered of course, in a freshly baked bun. SOOOO Good!!
I can comment on all the menu items except the vegan option, anti-dogs and the coffee, but I hear they are awesome as well.
WOW opened on the 100th anniversary of the park and I believe it pays homage to the history, beauty, and spirit that Waterton offers and perfectly compliments a "Love Your Life" attitude. It is also a great place to get tips on great hikes and other aspects of the park as this family enjoys all that Waterton offers while running their business.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We loved this place. We ate both a late evening meal here and visited again for breakfast. We had spent the day in the National Park before going for a couple of evening beers in the town and as a result wanted something tasty, quick and easy which we definitely found here. The staff were really friendly and we really enjoyed our food. Breakfast was just as good. If you fancy something informal or are feeling hungry then go here it is great.

“Stop at Wieners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We enjoyed our freshly made breakfast sausage at Wieners during our visit to Waterton in September that we stopped again on our return from Banff, Canada to the US border. All ingredients are freshly made and the service is great. The tea and coffee are delicious too.

“Surprisingly good dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Gourmet wieners and dogs for grown-ups, without abandoning the appeal to youngsters. This place offers up some delicious sausages, with choices of gourmet dressings. The sweet potato fries are fantastic, as well. Great place to grab a quick, simple meal in Waterton.
