A Trip To This Old-Time Hot Dog Stand Near DC Will Make You Feel Nostalgic
Life moves fast in the District. Every once in a while, some of us in DC want to slow back and go back in time to a simpler time. If you’re delicious old-fashioned American meals that take you back in time, there’s a perfect hot dog stand for you. In Arlington, right near DC, Weenie Beenie is the perfect nostalgic hot dog stand.
The Weenie Beenie is a roadside stand in Arlington, VA. It's been a long-standing favorite stand in the DC suburb since 1954.
Weenie Beenie is a no-frills type place. There are no tables or chairs. You walk up to the window to the order and take your food with you to enjoy at home or in the car!
Don't let the no-frills appearance fool you though. Weenie Beenie serves the best hot dogs and sandwiches in town. They are known for their half smokes and hot dogs, of course.
But if you prefer something else, Weenie Beenie has plenty of other delicious options on their menu.
You can order hamburgers, North Carolina style pulled pork sandwiches, cheesesteaks, chicken salad, and fish sandwiches, among many other delicious traditional foods.
And don't forget to order a side! Add fries, chips, or delicious onion rings to your order.
If you happen to stop off early in the day, you can grab a breakfast sandwich off their breakfast menu.
If you haven't been to Weenie Beenie, you need to make the stop. It's a beloved DC area restaurant. In fact, the Foo Fighters song "Weenie Beenie" might just be about this spot. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is from the area, after all.
