Landing On Planet Wiener

I had the opportunity recently to chow down on some hot dogs and fries over at Planet Wiener, a newly opened restaurant near my home. The name maybe sort of a gimmick, but the food is out of this world. They've got a variety of different hot dog concoctions to choose from, and you can even create your own by choosing from the dozens of different toppings available.

Now, don't get me wrong, the hot dogs themselves are pretty damn good. They're beef based, cooked very well and are reasonably priced. For me, however, the real star of Planet Wiener has to be the chili cheese fries. Too often, when you order chili cheese fries from other restaurants, you get bland chili topped over skinny fries. Planet Wiener gives you a generous portion of steak fries topped with chili and cheese that has a little kick to it.

For nostalgia sake, Planet Wiener might not eclipse the place in my heart that the old hot dog stand in my home town currently occupies. Still, it's an awesome place to grab a hot dog and fries.
