Serving Breakfast and Lunch M-F only
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.

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
ordered one. I am on their email list and get emailed the specials everyday.
are usually at least 4-5 specials a day, and it changes all the time.

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
2) They don't take care putting the order together: I don't know how many
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
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
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
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.
