Lean into the long weekend early with hot dogs galore. Sonic, "America's drive-in," is getting into the grilling spirit by offering $1 hot dogs on August 29 (though whether or not they're actually grilled is up in the air).
The rollerskating fueled chain is letting customers buy a maximum of 5 hot dogs at a time, so prepare to double fist dogs. Diners can either opt for the All-American Dog, a beef hot dog with classic toppings like ketchup, mustard, relish, and chopped raw onions; or savor the Chili Cheese Coney, which -- as the name suggests -- is topped with chili and cheese. If you're feeling really wild, you can get a combination of both and call it a day.
This dollar deal is only available on August 29, with no coupon required, so hurry to your nearest Sonic by either idling in the drive thru or waiting for a server to skate over with your items. Just remember: Sonic frowns upon smoking weed at their place of business.
