Nothing screams all-American cuisine quite like a hot dog. Today — Wednesday, July 17 — is an annual celebration of all-things weenie.
In honor of National Hot Dog Day, all Sonic Drive-In locations offer its popular Chili Cheese Coney and All-American hot dogs for $1 today when you enter promo code DOGS in the Sonic app (limit 5). If you're a Mapco Rewards member, you can pop into your local Mapco store and get a free hot dog.
Enjoy the celebration, and take your kids out for a hot dog treat. Or, go get supplies at the store, build a campfire in your back yard and have a weenie roast for dinner tonight if the rain holds off (don't forget the marshmallows!).
