What's a Texas Wiener?
Following the recipe and traditions of our grandfather and father Steve and Jack,, we have been making our Texas Wieners the same way for 90 years! Every action is performed in front of the customer, the way its always been.
We start with a Berks' All Beef Wiener by slicing it in half, but not all the way through, and grill the wiener to perfection. Then we serve it on a steamed National Bakery Roll (a local favorite). Adding in our Düsseldorf mustard and fresh diced onions (diced by our 1928 Model Hobart Chopper), the wiener is then topped with our famous homemade Chili Sauce.
Although not part of the original Texas Wiener, we offer cheddar cheese sauce, sweet relish, and sauerkraut as toppings, too. If you asked for a wiener with no onions when Steve or Jack manned the grill, they made the it with everything instead. Today, Pete is more forgiving and allows customers to order how they wish.
When you're in Northeast Pa, just about every restaurant here sells some kind of version of our Texas Wiener. When you have been around as long as us, they figure its got to help them. But don't waste your time, come to the source and try the original!
