Wolfy's Sausage

Wolfy’s Vienna Beef Sausage

In the land of hot dogs and sausage purveyors, Wolfy's has impaled its competition. High above the street is a red Vienna sausage held permanently in place by a light bulb-outlined giant fork. As I passed by during the day, I could only imagine the juicy sausage glowing in the dark with its accompanying fork. A visual feast! And besides they are in the Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame.
