Wienerschnitzel is heating things up on the first day of 2018 by offering its popular Chili Cheese Fries for just 99 cents on January 1.

Chili fans can add French fries topped with Wienerschnitzel’s world-famous chili recipe and cheddar cheese to their New Year’s Day celebration plans for just 99 cents. The special price is valid on New Year’s Day at participating Wienerschnitzel restaurants. There is a limit of five Chili Cheese Fries per person.

“We want our customers to start the year off right so we’re bringing back one of our most popular single-day offers ever,” says J.R. Galardi, Wienerschnitzel’s president. “The only thing better than our famous Chili Cheese Fries is getting them for under a buck.”

Wienerschnitzel christens the New Year with a world of mouth-watering new menu choices including three new Cereal Shakes and five favorite Pastrami dishes.

Coming to Wienerschnitzel menus in 2018 are shakes prepared with Trix, Cocoa Krispies, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals. For a limited time, each thick and creamy Wienerschnitzel Cereal Shake is made with Tastee-Freez Soft Serve blended with the famous cereal, topped with whipped cream and garnished with more of the tasty cereal. They taste incredible.
