The secret is out - Der Wienerschnitzel was not founded in Vienna, nor was it founded by anyone from Austria or any other German-speaking country. A Taco Bell employee, Missouri native John Galardi, decided one day in 1961 that he would create an enterprise dedicated solely to the hot dog. Since then, this yellow and red restaurant has been serving up dogs, still in operation as Wienerschnitzel #001. The restaurant has since dropped "Der" from its name. Good thing too; "das" is actually the correct German article. :)
