From the moment Emil Reichl and Samuel Ladany gave Chicago its first taste of Vienna® Beef, we’ve been making hot dog history.
Give the gift that will satisfy hot dog fans with their favorite tastes from the Windy City. Made from original family recipes that date back over 125 years, our franks and sausages say Chicago with every snappy bite.
Vienna Beef was founded in 1893. Austrian-Hungarian immigrants Emil Reichel and Sam Ladany introduced their family frankfurter recipe at the legendary Columbian Exposition. The hot dog was a hit, and Vienna Beef was born. 125 years later, we’re still making our sausages the old-fashioned way, with premium domestic beef and our original recipe, made to the highest of quality standards and hickory-smoked for authentic flavor.
We’d love to see your Instagram photos of you eating your favorite Chicago hot dog at your favorite hot dog spots using the #viennabeef hashtag.
