by Emily Morgan

Fourth of July may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to a free hot dog in celebration of National Hot Dog Day.

Hot dogs are the epitome of a summertime classic, perfect for enjoying at a family cookout or a baseball game. Although the quintessential American dish gets dogged on, there’s no denying that it’s a crowd-favorite.

Fans of the hot dog may dress theirs in various ways— from mustard and kraut or Chicago-style, there’s an endless array of possibilities to enjoy a hot dog. However, one thing is sure: they always taste better when they’re free.

July 21 marks National Hot Dog Day, and many national chains are getting in on the fun with special deals and discounts. Here’s where you can score the deals on your dog.

At 7-Eleven, the Quarter-Pound Big Bite 100 percent all-beef hot dog is available for just $1 in honor of National Hot Dog Day. However, the deal will be available through the end of July. Customers can deck out their hot dog with plenty of free toppings, including hot chili, melted cheese, onions, relish, diced tomatoes, sauerkraut, and salsa.
