A popular hot dog joint in the Cedar-Riverside area of Minneapolis has suffered its second burglary in the space of a week.

The Wienery, located at 414 Cedar Ave South, is a longtime fixture of the neighborhood. If you haven't been, you might recognize it from Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on the Food Network (video below).

The owners reported in a Facebook post that a rock had been thrown through the front window, with their register and phone system being stolen "just one week after being robbed the last time":

"We were too disheartened to open but will be back on our feet tomorrow," the post added.

A followup Facebook post shows that the Winery did indeed reopen on schedule, with socially-distancing diners lining up for dogs:

Here's a clip of the restaurant's turn on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," on which it was featured in 2008:

The Wienery has not shared details of the first break-in.
