Welcome to National Hot Dog Day. While it may not be an "official" holiday, pretty much any day during which you can get free or cheap food is a good enough reason to celebrate.

In honor of this totally made-up holiday, lots of eateries in New Jersey are offering free hot dogs or discounts throughout the day. So whether you're a frankfurter purist, a mustard-only proponent, or you go against the grain and use ketchup, here is a list of places where you can enjoy free or cheap hot dogs Wednesday.

  • Burger King — Throughout July, BK is offering hot dogs for 79 cents each.
  • Love's Travel Stop — Get a free hot dog Wednesday when you show a special barcode, which can be sound on Love's official Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
  • Sonic — Throughout the day, hot dogs and chili-cheese Coneys are $1 at participating locations.
  • Philly Pretzel Factory — Pretzel dog, anyone? Get a hot dog wrapped in a soft pretzel for $1 at participating locations.
