Vienna Beef is here!


There's a new hotdog in town (and at Shultzy's) and its name is Vienna Beef®.

Vienna Beef has a long tradition as Chicago's favorite hotdog, and it came to Don Schulze's attention earlier this year when the Wall Street Journal did an article on America's top hotdogs. Don saw that most of the top hotdog places were using Vienna Beef frankfurters as the foundation of their own custom dogs.  Since we pride ourselves on top-quality ingredients at Shultzy's, Don sent us in search of Vienna Beef.

It took a while to locate a local distributor, but we finally succeeded and today Vienna Beef's on the menu at Shultzy's.  Order a Vienna Beef Frankfurter, a Cheddar Dog, or a Junkyard Dog (cheddar, chili, and onions) and you'll get to taste what we think is the best-tasting hotdog around.  We're also serving them on Vienna Beef poppyseed rolls, the roll of choice in Chicago.  We hope you'll give them a try and let us know what you think.

And for those of your Chicagoans or wannabe Chicagoans, we'll soon be adding a Chicago Dog as a special on the menu, complete with mustard, neon green relish, diced onions, sport peppers, tomato wedges, pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt.  I'm looking forward to having one the next time the Cubs are on TV at lunchtime here.


Next week, we'll be adding another Vienna Beef product to our Happy Hour menu -- Vienna Beef "Pups" -- they're the hotdog equivalent of "sliders"/mini-hamburgers and they're delicious!
