Originally posted by SuperWWEFanWhy is there a spinning W at the top? Me and my friend Mark were discussing this. We think it stands for "Wrestling", or maybe "WWE".
The "Spinning W" is from the Wienerschnitzel fast food chain (corporate slogan: The World's Largest Hot Dog Chain). The food is like that at A & W (without the root beer) or Sonic (without the curb service). The only one I've ever seen is near the University of Illinois; they seem to be more of a Western & Southwestern chain (they have a lot of stores in California and Texas).
Earlier members of this site will remember when the logo was a variety of hot dog-related images. A few months ago, somebody borrowed the "Spinning W" logo (circa 1977) from Wienerschnitzel's corporate site and modified it with the Wienerville name.

You know, I drive by a Whataburger every night at 2 a.m. Sometimes I stop get a burger with the rest of the alcoholics. Sometimes the line's too long. But I never thought to suggest it for the logo. Kudos!
