New Blue Cheese & Bacon Angus Hot Dogs at Wienerschnitzel (Plus Caramel Dipped Cones)


Summer and barbecue have always gone together, well, like summer and barbecue. But this year, it seems fast food chains are eager to latch onto the trend. On the burger side, Wendy’s is testing a cornbread bun brisket cheeseburger in Florida and Ohio, and when it comes to hot dogs, Wienerschnitzel’s new summer offerings are equally as south and grill-inspired.

We’re talking healthy dollops of barbecue sauce, bacon, and fried onion straws on the new BBQ Bacon Angus Dog and even heartier globs of blue cheese dressing and crumbles and grilled onions on the new Blue Cheese & Bacon Angus Dog. And in case that’s still not enough #TEXAS for you, the new items also come with their own Der Cowboy commercial.  As in “HI-YO Schnitzel, AWAYYY!”

For anyone who prefers a little less weenie with their weiner, though, there’s also the old Angus Chicago Dog, featuring all the usual Chicago toppings like mustard, pickles, and peppers. Also, keep an eye out for their new chocolate and caramel ice cream treats, including a Chocolate Caramel Crunch Freeze and Caramel and Chocolate Caramel Dipped Taste Freez Cones. Pretty sweet.

Quiznos Offers New Bourbon Steak Sub


For the company that brought us those mutant “spongmonkeys” back in the early 2000s, you’d think Quiznos would have a lot more booze on its menu. The latest – a Bourbon Steak Sub – seeks to remedy this tragic deficiency. Featuring Black Angus steak (which, by the way, is just a kind of cow, not necessarily a marker of quality), along with mozzarella, bacon, fried onions and a bourbon sauce, the BSS is what happens when meat companies realize the marriage between liquor and protein is not only inevitable, it’s f*cking delicious.


As with any sub, you can get the Bourbon Steak on your choice of White, Wheat, Rosemary Parmesan or Jalapeno Cheddar bread. You can also find a dollar off coupon on Quiznos’ Facebook. This, of course, is all assuming you’re able to actually find a Quiznos. If the comments on the chain’s Facebook page are any indication, everyone’s local franchise has been disappearing over the years, probably thanks to all the franchisees suing corporate for charging them too much for supplies – and leaving all us would-be eaters sadly bourbon steak-less.

What say we just smooth everything over with a bottle and plate of bourbon, hm?

Quiznos’ new Bourbon Steak Sub is now available for a limited time at all participating Quiznos locations.

McDonald’s Testing a “Zesty BBQ Crunch” Burger

The McDonald’s test products are like easter eggs in the foodie community as of late. The brand’s latest in-testing idea comes in the form of this Zesty BBQ Cruncher. The burger comes complete with peppered bacon, barbecue sauce, pepper-jack cheese, crispy onion strings and laid down on an Artisan roll.

The pricing, according to BurgerBusiness‘ scouting, notes the product to cost $4.49 or $6.49 as part of a combo. Most interesting about this variety is your choice of either a third-pound Angus beef patty or a chicken patty (grilled or crispy).
