Right away when people/customers in the gallery see this Famous Hot Weiner Lunch Neon Sign Photo their minds go directly to the gutter, which makes this photo so much more fun and entertaining.

Legend has it that one of the Emperor’s cook, stuck a knife into a roasted pig that had not been cleaned thoroughly, and the puffed, empty intestines fell out. He cried out at his discovery and filled the casing with ground meat and spices. Over the course of the following centuries, the sausage traveled across Europe, making its way to Germany, a country that adopted the wiener as its own. Today, Frankfurt claims its creation, a staple in the contemporary German diet. But how did the hot dog get from Germany to the US?

In the 1800s many German immigrants came to New York, bringing along with them their own culinary traditions. Then around 1870 the first hot dogs stand open on Coney Island that gentleman sold over 3,000 frankfurters (in a bun) that year. Fast forward some years and a sausage vendor in St. Louis would hand out white gloves to customers to hold the hot sausages then when he ran out of gloves he began giving out the hot links inside a white bun instead. The hot dog became a favorite at baseball parks. Then a Polish immigrant opened a hot dog stand and started selling them for half the price as his competitor. Then by the 1920s they became famous. The hot dogs became known nationwide from east to west, which now became a staple in the contemporary American diet as well.

The famous hot Weiner lunch is now being enjoyed at backyard BBQs, Fourth of July celebrations, birthday parties, and on menus across the US.

Just as much as Neon Signs are a part of American history so is the Hot Weiner and photographer Martin Garfinkel captured a piece of that for us in this Famous Hot Weiner Lunch Neon Sign Photo.
