This former Der Wienerschnitzel in Hampton was built in 1968. The building housed The Dog House when this photo was taken in 2010. The building was still there in 2012 but gone by 2015.

The former Der Wienerschnitzels in Los Angeles and Burbank now house Original Tommy's Hamburgers locations. [Los Angeles map]; [Burbank map]

North Hollywood, CA
Canoga Park, CA
These two Der Wienerschnitzel buildings are intact examples of DW's large building design. Both have been rebranded as Wienerschnitzel locations and still offer drive-thru service in the middle of the buildings. There are still many examples of these still-operating buildings in Southern California. [North Hollywood map]; [Canoga Park map]

The Der Wienerschnitzel in Pomona was still operating as a Wienerschnitzel in 2016. These photos are from 2013. [map]

former Der Wienerschnitzel
Baldwin Park, CA
Der Wienerschnitzel
Fremont, CA
This former Der Wienerschnitzel in Baldwin Park housed Tono's Taco when this photo was taken in 2012. By 2014, the building was housing 626 Hawaiian BBQ & BOBA. This was another of the earlier, smaller buildings without a drive-thru in the middle. [map]

The drive-thru feature of this still-operating Der Wienerschnitzel in Fremont has been removed to create more indoor dining space. A box-like feature at the front of the building has also been added. [map]

former Der Wienerschnitzel
San Diego, CA
This Der Wienerschnitzel in Torrance closed around 2012. The building now houses the Brazilian Plate House. [map]

This Der Wienerschnitzel in San Diego closed in 2016. Since 2018, the building has housed Copper Top Coffee and Donuts. [map]

Der Wienerschnitzel
San Jose, CA
2014: 2017:
This Der Wienerschnitzel in San Jose and the Pomona building shown below are examples of the chain's early, smaller buildings. They have doors in the middle of the buildings instead of drive-thru lanes. The signs were updated to reflect the company's dropping of the "Der" part of the name, as well as the company's association with Tastee-Freez. This San Jose location closed in 2015. By 2016, the building was housing the Flying Falafel. By 2017, the building was vacant. In 2019, the property was fenced off and there were plans to demolish the building. [map]

The first two Der Wienerschnitzel locations above are very similar to those shown in the row above but with the roof pinched at the top. I have not noticed this design used anywhere else but San Jose. Note that the first location has a drive-thru in the middle of the building while the other does not.

The third Der Wienerschnitzel location above is the more common, larger building design with the non-pinched roof and the drive-thru lane through the building. [Story Rd. map]; [4th St. map]; [Santa Clara St. map]

former Der Wienerschnitzel
Grand Prairie, TX
former Der Wienerschnitzel
Sacramento, CA
This former Der Wienerschnitzel in Grand Prairie had opened by 1968. It has housed Metroplex Welding Supply since at least 2007. Because of the fencing, I can't determine if this building had the drive-thru hole in the middle of the building. The little gables on the sides of the building above the doors are much more like the Heap Big Beef buildings. However, this was definitely built as a Der Wienerschnitzel. There was another former location with those gables and the drive-thru feature in Haltom City, TX. That building was demolished around 2014. [map]

This former Der Wienerschnitzel in Sacramento is an example of the chain's non-A-frame design. I'm told there were hot dog shaped door pulls. The building previously housed Miyako Teriyaki Bowl. Since about 2014, the building has housed La Favorita Taqueria. [map]
