Untitled[edit]

being a native german speaker, wienerschnitzel could also be translated to "peace of meat made out of citizens of vienna" --

Elaborating on that and taking into account that (outside Austria, where they're called Frankfurter) a Wiener is indeed a hot-dog sausage, wienerschnitzel would translate to 'weenie bits', 'slices of Wieners' etc. and be thus an almost appropriate name for that kind of franchise. :) --140.78.107.99 14:05, 15 September 2005 (UTC)

I think the name is just a jocular extension of "wiener," Wiener Schnitzel being a food term that most Americans have heard without knowing exactly what it is, like Hasenpfeffer and Sauerbraten. They just know it's meat of some kind, which is all they know about hot dogs. Richard K. Carson 06:09, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Where do they get their hot dogs from[edit]

Is it an own private company that makes the hot dogs or is it Frank, Ballpark, or Hewbrew that is the company where they get their hot dogs from?

New York pizza dog?...[edit]

POV section[edit]

I removed the below section to here because it is entirely POV. If it's true, it needs a cite of some sort. Just stating it doesn't make it true. In addition, it states "do not always meet quality standards." Whose standards? The Department of Health? The author's? And lastly, the author's use of "MANY" instead of "many" is even more POV.

Criticism[edit]

Many customers feel that MANY of the existing restaurants need to be remodeled in order to promote cleanliness and healthiness. MANY of the older locations are un-safe and do not always meet quality standards. In some cases, customers have reported finding dead insects such as spiders & ants cooked into their deep fryed food.

Is[edit]

the name "Der Wienerschnitzel" completely verified?? It is contrary to my childhood recollection, where the signs, advertizing, seem to have been "der Wienerschnitzel", possibly even "der wienerschnitzel"; not "Der"; but, "der".

Thank You, user : hopiakuta, the wienie,

Did John Galardi buy Taco Bell?[edit]

In that story of Wienerschitzel's origin, John Galardi said that he bought a Taco Bell store from its founder, Glen Bell, for $12k. It reads as if John bought everything that was Taco Bell, but then the story mentions building a Weinerschitzel store next to another Taco Bell store. Does anyone here know which is correct?

Whatever happened to Weinerdog?[edit]

I remember back in the 80's a cartoon figure named Weinerdog that was the "logo" of Der Wienerschnitzel. I still have several toys and even some story cassettes from when I was a kid that have him on it. What happened to him? I haven't been able to find anything on the internet about it. - Ian 12:30 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Who named it?[edit]

In the quote it says Glen's wife but in the nested quote it says Bell's wife. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.101.213.222 (talk) 22:37, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Champaign location is CLOSED[edit]

The Champaign branch of Wienerschnitzel is now closed with no indication of when or if it will re-open. My attempt to change the page was immediately reverted with no indication of why (ok, it was poor grammar, but I was about to fix that). Saying that it is the easternmost location is now wrong. Fix it since you won't let me fix it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.227.76.50 (talk) 02:29, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Update: Champaign location has re-opened recently, which I believe makes it once again the eastern-most location. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.199.0.171 (talk) 01:50, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Fair use or not?[edit]

That's a mighty long quotation from the Orange County Business Journal. 86.160.226.161 (talk) 20:59, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Link issue?[edit]

Why does the link for 'The delicious one' redirect to the Hermann Göring page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.162.64.146 (talk) 18:14, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Weird Sentence[edit]

I think this sentence is kind of contradictary:

"Wienerschnitzel locations are found almost exclusively in California and Texas, though others are located in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Washington state."

So they're "almost exclusive" to CA and TX, but also appear in 8 other states and Guam? Also, I know of at least 4 in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah, it's definitely not a hard to find restaurant here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.10.185.202 (talk) 04:52, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
