I have been meaning to write a post about the Wienery all summer. What’s the delay? Burgers, the wieners, fries, chips, malt shakes, and fried cheese curds. You know… research.
FLX Wienery is a brand new restaurant (opened in late Spring) on Route 14 on the West side of Seneca Lake. Technically, it’s a Dundee address (5090 State Route 14 to be exact).
It’s essentially the ultimate hot dog stand and burger joint. Local ingredients, clever menu items, intriguing marketing.
The wall menu is written on an old window hanging on the wall, although I recommend grabbing a paper menu off the counter. It’s a little easier to read and you’ll want to take it home with you. :)
You order and pay at the counter, then have a seat. They’ll shout your name when your order is up. Then you run up and grab it from the chef.
I won’t run down their entire menu here (it’s fascinating!) but you can see it on their website. If you’re into burgers, I recommend the All-American: Cheddar, bacon, fried egg (yep.), cilantro, lettuce, corn relish, tomato.
Recently though, I discovered my new favorite. Wiener with cheese curds and corn relish, topped with ketchup. This is my custom creation, and I call it the “Mere-Dog”. HEY why not? Sidenote: If you order the MereDog at the counter they will likely have no clue what you are talking about. Let’s just keep it between us. Mmmkay?
I recommend the home made fries vs. the chips, although both are good.
The Sodas are also really fun. The root beer is best (in my opinion) and they come in glass bottles. Fancy, right?
Finish your meal off with a nutella milk shake.
Yes, they are as good as they sound. So is the fried Nutella. FRIED NUTELLA! That deserves a blog post all to itself I think.
I give FLX Wienery 5 stars! I’ve been there a dozen times and I recommend you check it out. You won’t be sorry… and you will want to go back. Consider yourself warned! See their menu here or visit flxwienery.com.
