I have spotted skin-on Vienna beef dogs here in Austin at a mere $45.19 for 10lbs (80 hot dogs). That's a heck of deal compared to the online Vienna Beef store which sells 30 of them for $90. This place also carries the Vienna Italian Beef as well. And the snausages and other skinless dogs.
Restaurant Depot near St Johns an I35. You need a resale certificate to get a membership. Or a tax exempt certificate AND an authorization letter from a qualified non-profit.
I had already spent too much when I was there to afford the hot dogs this round, but next time for sure. If anybody can't get in there any other way, I may be willing to help if the timing is right. I don't think they had them there last time I was there. They may be a newish product for them.
Other than Boars Head (nyeh), are there any other skin-on hot dogs in Austin? Caspar's from Northern CA would be my ultimate skin-on dog, but I'd be willing to try others.
