Weinerschnitzel opens its first Houston-area eatery in New Caney in May.
Wienerschnitzel plans to open its first Houston-area location, after its last Houston eatery closed in the 1990s, in mid-May at 20130 Hwy. 59, New Caney, in the Caney Crossing shopping center. Ted Milburn, Wienerschnitzel's director of U.S. franchise development, said via email that the eatery will feature indoor and outdoor dining as well as a drive-thru. Milburn said the second Houston-area location will open in Baytown by the end of 2019.
Wienerschnitzel specializes in various hot dogs, such as chili-cheese dogs and corn dogs, as well as burgers, sandwiches and various sides. 832-793-5525. www.facebook.com/newcaneyhotdogs
Correction: The original version of this article incorrectly stated that the New Caney location will be the first Houston-area Wienerschnitzel, rather than the brand's return to the Houston market.
