The world's largest hot dog chain is celebrating its 56th birthday with a nationwide party on July 11.

Wienerschnitzel is offering a special 56-cent price for its  Original Mustard Dog, the beloved grilled hot dog topped with French's® mustard, or the Original Chili Dog, featuring Wienerschnitzel's world-famous, secret-recipe chili, for one day only.

There are 9 Wienerschnitzel restaurants in Las Vegas and all of them will be participating. Click here to find locations.

“We can’t think of a better way to mark our 56th year of making food ‘the Wienerschnitzel way’ than with 56-cent dogs,” said JR Galardi, executive vice president at Wienerschnitzel. “We’re proud to celebrate the success that my father, John Galardi, started back in 1961. The only challenge for hot dog fans is choosing between the Mustard and Chili Dog.”

John Galardi started in the restaurant industry in Missouri at the age of 12, and moved to Los Angeles at 19 to open his first Wienerschnitzel.  As the chain grew to meet customer demand, Galardi added The Original Hamburger Stand restaurants in Denver and other cities, and Tastee-Freez ice cream to Wienerschnitzel menus nationwide.  Today, Wienerschnitzel operates 331 restaurants in 10 states and Guam.
