Blue skies, longer days and the savory smell of Polish hotdogs lingers in the air. Spring is here.

The seasonal shift marks a culinary change in Oak Harbor, and the return of The Weiner Wagon, owned by 20-year Oak Harbor resident Mike Miller.

“A lot of people are happy to see me here,” Miller said.

Located in front of Saar’s Market Place off Highway 20, patrons can’t miss the wagon with its red and white striped shade and simple menu selection: Polish dogs, drinks and chips.

Even with temperatures hovering in the 40s, business is hot, Miller said of his selection of grilled or steamed dogs.

The Wiener Wagon is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week in front of Saar’s Market Place in Oak Harbor.

Spring officially arrived March 20, finally catching up with the Wiener Wagon.
