The number five combo at Wienerschnitzel is a winner for those of you who are fans of the classic chili at this, the world's largest hot dog chain. The standard combo comes with a chili cheeseburger, chili cheese dog, fries, and a drink, all for about six bucks. Well, I had this wonderful coupon:
which afforded me the opportunity to enjoy a chili cheeseburger, chili cheese dog, and chili cheese fries all for $4.99. Even adding in the price of a drink I came out way ahead.
The cheeseburger, I'll admit, isn't much to write home about. It's a basic beef patty with chili and melting American cheese on a small bun. But I do find the burger is just the right size to be the perfect transport for the chili.
MMM. So good. And follow that up with the classic Wienerschnitzel hot dog with more chili and cheese. This dog is a true fast food hot dog. Not at all pretentious.
The chili cheese fries were the real treat here. Normally, I enjoy their fries straight, or maybe with some ketchup. But a nice little box of chili cheese fries is like the savory icing on the cake. Plus, the staff was happy to substitute American cheese for their normal cheddar sprinkles, making for a consistent chili and cheese experience from burger to dog to fry. Perfect.
Wienerschnitzel chili might not be for everyone. But if you're looking for a great taste that's easy to eat and easy on your wallet, take these out for a spin.
