It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the death of Kurt Cobain and the resulting dissolution of his previous band. The group got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as foo fighters. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters' debut album Foo Fighters, which featured Grohl as the only official member, Grohl recruited bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith, both formerly of Sunny Day Real Estate, as well as fellow Nirvana touring bandmate Pat Smear as guitarist to complete the lineup.
Forgot your password? Retrieve it. Ahhhh nothing like a old hole in the wall eatery place to eat. This visit was one of those "I live here so I should try it once" I got the half smoke of course and fried which really were wedges. Both were very good the service was fast and polite. Pretty big menu nuff said just don't eat and bike in 90 degree temps! Onion rings and Wedge Fries are to die for!
Super delicious. Honestly I would've gave 5 stars alone on just the onion rings and wedge fries. Philly Steak and Cheese was average.
Tasted kinda black-peppery which threw me off. But it was ok. Stars got bumped down because of the philly steak and cheese. Overall Fast, Easy and Convenient. Will def come back for onion rings and wedge fries! I am about to show my age, I have been visiting Weenie Beenie since the 70's, when Shirlington looked a lot different than it does now. The one constant about Shirlington has been the presence of Weenie Beenie. This place is truly a throwback to what South Arlington used to be, a dive that has a cross section of customers, in the parking lot you can see everything from BMW's to Volvo delivery trucks to chevy's to Ford F dually's.
This is a locally owned institution with employees that have been around for years. Weenie Beenie is not pretentious, the food is not the healthiest; but who cares, if you want high fat, high carb, stick to your ribs food that will fill you up, Weenie Beenie is your spot, if not keep on going to a salad place. My go to items are for breakfast, BLT with extra bacon or grilled sausage with cheese sandwich, lunch half smoke, jumbo Carolina pork barbecue with hot sauce or jumbo fish sandwich with hot sauce.
I was hesitant to try the nc pulled pork sandwich bc of the pix others have posted. One related it to canned tuna and I despise that mess. That being said, I bought one anyway. You can see the other pictures look just like mine. But omg the flavor of this sandwich is It is a bit dry, but I'm not a fan of coleslaw so I'm assuming that helps. I'll still crush this sandwich. There are little flecks of red pepper, I like my food spicy, and while this isn't exactly spicy, it does have a slight kick which I appreciate.
I wasn't given hot sauce, my genius self forgot to ask. But this goes to show, never judge a book by its cover. The onion rings are pretty damn good too. This morning I tried Wennie Beenie for the first time. They make a really good and filling breakfast. For the breakfast platter you get to choose 2 meats I chose bacon and ham , home fries, an egg, and toast.
I was really satisfied with the flavor and the portion size. Definitely a good spot to go to for breakfast. It can be a hit or miss. I've tried their hotdogs and chili and various lunch options and I've also tried their breakfast menus. I must say, avoid the corn beef hash breakfast sandwich I must say though, every time I eat here, let's just say, exercise is a must Lol besides that everything was decent! I have only eaten breakfast there twice and haven't tried the slew of other items they half.
Consider this blue collar food! Nothing over the top but fulfills the need at a great price! I wanted to try this place until I saw they put up a sign with the ten commandments on it. Hard pass on giving money to religious zealots. I have managed to stop here twice this week. They offer half smokes, burgers, and sandwiches along with chips and bottled cola or fruit drinks.
It is a no frills kind of place that has been around since and claim to be the place of the original half smoke - hotdog with chili, relish, and onions on it. Walk up to the window, place your order, pay for your order I brought cash, and not sure if they accept credit cards , they make your order and they call you to pick it up from within ear shot of the window.
There are areas to stand and eat your food and a dining table on the side of the joint. Plan for this to be a to-go order or eat it in your car. They have ample parking. For a side stand spot to stay standing for over 60 years usually says volumeshence, I had high hopes for my taste buds. Of course, I looked up other reviews here on Yelp, before venturing my hard earned dollars and the verdict seemed pretty consistent.
The menu has quite a few eye-catching items and my friend and I had difficulty choosing what our lunch was going to be. We decided that we would order two different entrees and split it as we usually do at a new place , so we could both experience a broader sample. The highest expectation was for the "Carolina" BBQ.
