Are you wondering where to get free hot dogs for National Hot Dog Day on Wednesday? Hey, something for nothing is a pretty good deal, right? And that’s just what you might get on this very special day! Jul. 18 is National Hot Dog Day and here’s how to get discounts and deals on this staple summertime food.

Philly Pretzel Factory

Yes, the name says “pretzel,” but that doesn’t mean this eatery is sans dogs. Instead of the traditional bun and meat combo, the Philly Pretzel Factory has a (no surprise here) pretzel dog. These kind of kooky, but totally tasty, culinary concoctions are only $1 on National Hot Dog Day. Yay!

Dog Haus

All you need to do is download the Dog Haus Rewards App to get a free dog on July 18. Yep. Register yourself and you’re eligible for your very own National Hot Dog Day celebration.


While the drive-in doesn’t have a specific dog day deal, they do have a pretty rad special. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. daily, you can get 99-cent corn dogs. (And forget about the relish!) This deal also includes half-priced slushes. So why not pair your corn dog with a pickle juice slush?


If you’re hitting the open road this summer, Love’s is the perfect place for a rest and refuel. And apparently a free hot dog on Wednesday!

Even though these are some pretty common eateries that serve dogs, it’s pretty likely that your hometown has even more deals. So if you have a local hot dog shop, scout out the National Hot Dog Day deals. Your kiddos will thank you.
