The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Take control of this noble bedrock with today's deal: for $6, you get $12 worth of Nathan's Famous hot dogs and Bruster's real ice cream at Nathan's/Bruster's.
Bruster's stimulates salivation with its brain-freezingly broad menu of ice-cream flavors served alongside the classic Coney Island appeal of Nathan's Famous hot dogs. The classic New York hot dog traps an all-beef cylinder and its toppings in a fluffy, edible maximum-security prison ($2.99), strong enough to contain both chili and cheese at once ($3.69). Bacon-ranch krinkle-cut fries ($3.69) and corn-dog nuggets ($2.99 for six) supply ample ammunition for tongue target practice. To prevent oral overheating, visitors can apply a waffle cone stacked with any of Bruster's rotating ice-cream flavors, such as white-raspberry truffle or turtle cheesecake ($3.99). Sundaes ($4.29), fudge-covered banana splits ($5.59), and shakes ($4.29) provide more elaborate accouterments to the chilly treats.
