It's famous for several things but most notably their incredibly satisfying Chicago style hot dogs, hamburgers, milk shakes and cheese fries as well as the verbal abuse that goes back and forth between the staff and the customers. The show often employs creative edits to block out the constant stream of curse words that fly around the restaurant.

For The Weiner's Circle game show, some late night customers are invited to win free food by trying their hands at outrageous and totally embarrassing challenges. The show uses the restaurant's actual staff to host the challenges and harass the contestants. Poochie is the lead dog and has been the manager at the Weiner's Circle for seventeen years. She is the queen of the insult. Erika, known as Lady-E, is quick with an insult but also will perform radical dance moves to show up her competition. Johnny is the fry guy and the narrative voice of the shenanigans at the hot dog stand. Yolanda is usually the gentle voice of reason, but don't get her ticked off! Even the owners of The Weiner's Circle, Barry and Larry stop by to enjoy the fun.

Some of the crazy challenges that customers have been put through include eating contests, physical challenges, nose to nose put down contests, races, dance offs and party style games. In one crazy contest contestants had to try to mimic Erica's booty walk dance move. Another episode showed two partiers participate in a contest to see who could strip naked the fastest to win a free hot dog and t-shirt. Poochie will often have a say what challenge, where she invites customers to translate her own self developed language.
