National Hot Dog Day Deals: Where to Get Free Food


Few people can eat as many hot dogs in a full day as Joey Chestnut can eat in 10 minutes. However, if you have the uncontrollable itch to try, July 20 should be your day. (For reference: Chestnut won this year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest by chowing down 63 of ’em in 10 minutes.)

July 20 is National Hot Dog Day. In general, the summertime tube meat isn’t a high-price item. On National Hot Dog Day, though, you’re going to find some real deals on the mustard-delivery device. To get you on the path of least resistance–like a wet hot dog sliding down a competitive eater’s throat–we’ve pulled together all the best hot dog deals you’ll find on National Hot Dog Day, including deals from Dog House , Hot Dog on a Stick, Love’s Travel Stops, and more.

Here are the best deals on hot dogs you will find on National Hot Dog Day.
