The Wiener's Circle serves gourmet hot dogs and sausages which are all delicious. Sausages include Italian, Bratwurst, Kielbasa, and Andouille. They also have specialty dogs such as the Tubin, A hot dog topped with corn beef, Swiss cheese sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing. And the Chili Mac Dog, an Angus dog topped chili and fried macaroni and cheese. But what really makes this place great are the daily specials such as cheesesteak, barbecue, jambalaya, or crab cakes. They usually have 5 or 6 specials per day often with a theme for holidays. When you’re there sign up for the daily email and you’ll know the specials everyday. They also boast over 30 condiments to dress up your dog or special, as well as homemade pickles and relishes.

The Wiener’s Circle is new and improved as of March 2011. They have moved right around the corner in the same building. They now have much more space and ample seating. Their hours have also expanded a little, from 2 ½ to 3 ½ hours a day. However if you can squeeze them into your day it will well worth the effort. Everything else is pretty much the same.

Catering available.

I work walking distance from the restaurant. Me and several co-workers
frequent this place several times a week. I don't even like hot dogs and haven't
ordered one. I am on their email list and get emailed the specials everyday. There
are usually at least 4-5 specials a day, and it changes all the time. They have
amazing sandwiches, soup, sliders, barbecue, crab sandwiches, smoothies, beer
cheese, amazing random root beer. Everything is consistently good...no you can't
eat there, its tiny.

I've tried them many times over the last 2 years and I'm done with them
1) They aren't very accommodating: They won't put any condiments on your food. If you have to get it to go, you have to unwrap your food dress it, and re-wrap it. They are a hot dog place, put the mustard on it like I asked
2) They don't take care putting the order together: I don't know how many times,
I’ve ordered a Chicago dog and get it on the non-poppy seed bun.
3) Food taste is .... less than mediocre: Today, I had the worst I ever had.
They had a "Philly" sub. They told me it was made with pork, I was OK with it, but let me tell you it was the least flavorful sandwich I ever had. It was cold, the
cheese wasn't melted. It had NO flavor at all. It has the flavor of a cardboard
4) Limited hours: They have few hours: Only open 2-1/2 hours a day. Forget going in early it's 11:30-2:00.
5) No place to stand to pay for your order: The customer area is so small you can't get more than 6 people in there without tripping over each other.
6) It's take out only: No place to sit and eat.
I'm not a particular person, but this place is off my list. I don't see why they
even bother to be open. If this is a sample of their food, I'm not using them for catering, nor is anyone I know. My company has over 3,500 people in our offices, and no one there likes them either. Ok, I didn’t poll them all, but I never ran into any one I know. Believe me, I took the time to save you from the dogs. The Weiner's Circle is the Losers Den. 1/2 star rating in my book! Oh, BTW, this is NOT a personal attack on any of the people there, they all seem
nice. The business model just doesn't sit well with me, or my co-workers.

Look no further for a top-quality hot dog or sausage. This place has everything you need to fulfill that craving. Not to mention you can add chili or cheese to any thing FREE OF CHARGE. You cannot find a better place for hot dogs for miles.

While this place is hard to get to in the the whole 2.5 hours that it is open Mon-Fri, if you are in the mood for a hot dog, there is no better place around than the Weiner's Circle. A couple guys from work and I tried some of their specialty dogs and they were amazing. The Tubin was my favorite (a hot dog with corn beef, swiss, sauerkraut, and 1000 island), but they have a couple of other ones to choose from and they are working on even more specialty dogs, so keep you eyes peeled in the next month or so. I can't wait. Will definitely be back.

I ordered the 4oz All Beef Angus hotdog with chili and cheese.
It was the best hotdog I have ever tasted! Very good quality hotdog! Next time I will skip the chili and cheese. There is a fixin's bar with tons of choices for topping your hotdog. The service was fast and friendly. The prices are very reasonable.

Went there for Lunch on Friday with a few friends. I had a bratwurst with kraut and a smoked polish sausage. Very friendly staff and great food. This is a great edition to Herndon. I am going to spread the word about this place.
