Originally conceived as a rationale for the recently invented sliced bread, the hot dog revolutionized the way Americans eat and make juvenile double-entendres. You'll learn this and many other hot dog–related facts with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fun-loving comfort cuisine at The Acme Hotdog and Sausage Company for $5. Don your most mustard-stained T-shirt and saddle up your ballpark appetite for six to eight bites of historical dog decadence.
Though its products consistently fail to capture roadrunners, Acme Hotdog and Sausage Company is quite adept at combining the flavorful pleasures of eating a hot dog with the didactic fortitude of learning about it. Dine in or drive through to fill your dogging belly with bunned treat combos such as the Snapper ($6), the Boardwalk (Italian sausage, cheese stick, and funnel fries, $8.95), and the Tale of 2 Cities (one Coney dog, one Chicago-style, and a drink, $8.95). More kid-sized portions include a large serving of mini corn dogs ($5.50) or a small order of chili fries ($1.65). Reward them for cleaning their plate (well, basket) with an Aunt Judy's brownie with ice cream ($4.25).
Today's deal gets you and your troupe of interpretive acrobats in on a culinary rite of passage beloved by countless generations of dog lovers who don't feel guilty about loving hot dogs as well. If your daily recommended dosage of Americana inspires you with a new idea for a hot dog, let the Acme staff know right away. They'll add it to their suggestions list and might eventually debut it on the menu.
