A term used in Rhode Island to describe a type of diner-style restaurant that specialized in serving hot dogs. The term appeared in Rhode Island in the early 1900s as a marketing strategy when hot dogs were closely associated with New York's Coney Island.

The term "New York System wiener", or "hot wiener", describes the style of hot dog served at these restaurants - the veal and pork wiener is placed in a steamed bun and topped with celery salt, mustard, onions, and a seasoned meat sauce.
"Hey Pal, how's bout we grab an Olneyville New York System wiener on our way to the Paw Sox, I'm wicked hungry since all I had today were some pizza strips and a Del's."
