Wieners of Waterton | Waterton Lakes National Park

Our first three customers of the season, with their free dogs!
It's a new season for Waterton, and here at Wieners of Waterton we are so excited to be serving up fresh, delicious food again for the Summer of 2011!

Wieners of Waterton opened the first day of May Long Weekend, and we had a great turnout.  To celebrate opening day, or first three customers got their meal on us.  The weather that weekend turned out to be beautiful, and the park was full of people looking to get a taste of Waterton early in the season. 

This year we have a few new items on our menu that we're pretty stoked about.  We still have our best-seller, the local All-Beef Smokie, made for us fresh by Back Country Butchers in Cowley.  We also still have the Nathan's Famous Quarter-Pounder out of New York.  We have our Anti-Dog for anyone looking for a meatless meal, made with falafel and topped with hummus, tzatiki sauce, and fresh veggies.  And of course we still have our sumptuous sweet potato fries with our homemade dipping sauces.

What's new?  This year we are excited to add to our menu: fried pickles, poutine, and kettle chips!

And one more thing: we're baking our own bread this year!  We bake our buns every morning and we keep baking them throughout the day.   It's a little extra work but the difference is noticeable....and it ensures that you get the finest, freshest food possible.

Hungry yet?  Stop by Wieners of Waterton this season.  We promise you won't be disappointed!

So every once in a while we will look for blogs and other online content where our little hot dog shop is mentioned, and seem to find new stuff all the time! It is pretty exciting as a new business to see so many positive responses for what we are doing at our little restaurant in Waterton Lakes National Park. Last summer we started seeing awesome reviews on websites such as and; this year we are already noticing people mention our little shop in their blogs, websites and publications.
Check out the March/April 2011 issue of The Tomato, a food & drink publication for the Edmonton area ( What a surprise! Flip through or go directly to page 12 and you'll see exactly what we were excited to read late one night last week...
Although this weak attempt at a website is a temporary facade for our website, it has been on our "to do list" since almost day one. The summer was crazier than we had imagined when we dreamt up the plan in the Fall of 2009 to open Wieners of Waterton. What a fun summer though! It was always exciting to see old friends walk through the door and just as fun to make new ones. And then when we saw people come back again and again we couldn't have been happier to know that the hot dog masterpieces you created, the sweet potato fries dipped in those delicious sauces (mmmm, wasabi ginger...), and the monstrous shave ice treats were making your Waterton experience just that much better.  We were shocked to see all of the awesome reviews our customers were leaving for us on Tripadvisor and Urbanspoon, thank you so much!

Get ready for Summer 2011 because it is coming quick. We've been working on a few ideas to keep things exciting and can't believe how fast the time is flying by until we open up again in May! Until then, stay hungry...
