I’ve been to Cedar Rapids many times, but never been to Flying Wienie before today. The yellow airplane on the roof of a vintage gas station catches the eye. The interior decor features a four cylinder Lycoming aero engine, radio gear and other vintage flight...More

This place stands alone in an area that was devastated by the flood of 2008 and other lesser flooding. It is next to a factory a couple blocks from the river and a few blocks from the Czech Village. It is a delightful place to...More

In 15 years we've never been disappointed. Chicago Dogs are a specialty here, but the airplane should put you on notice: The Flying Weenie is just fun. The place is painted in colors of mustard and catsup, and old aviation memorabilia is everywhere. Everything is...More

I go to this place at least once a week. Really great hot dogs with all kinds of toppings, Burgers and gyros too. They hand cut their fries from actual potatoes and fry them up fresh. No frozen food here.

I read about this place on a roadside attractions website, so we stopped in on our way to northern Iowa. The building and its inside decor are worth the stop alone. We were all set to order hot dogs until we saw the rest of...More

We travel from Missouri to Minnesota frequently and one of our favorite places to stop for a bite is The Flying Wienie. Food is good, the atmosphere is, what can I say, old garage, but very enjoyable. Owners and staff are very friendly. We may...More

I've only had their Chicago dogs and gyros. Both are great, but the Chicago dogs are as good as anything in Chicago. A great dog on a steamed poppy-seed bun, mustard, banana peppers, fluorescent green relish, salt and a pickle spear. Definitely get the fries...More
