    Of all the directions to take their hot dogs…really?

    Take a trip to NYC and see what the guys there are doing. Seriously.

  2. Johnnyboy says:

    The pricing on these are ridiculous. Just go to a Costco for better hotdogs and a coke for $1.50! Or hit up a 7-eleven for 2 dogs for under $3 bucks.

  3. Kevin K says:

    The only way I’d get these is with the coupons they give through the mail or on their app. Right now it’s 2 dogs and a large fry for $4. Probably more food than necessary but a good deal.

    I know I have a negative bias towards mayo, but seriously, on a hot dog? You have to be kidding me. Even if I liked the stuff, I would never put it on a hot dog.

    I have to agree with JohnnyBoy. They’re priced well beyond their value.

    • Patrick Bateman says:

      I can’t stand yellow mustard on anything, so I put mayonnaise on my hot dogs. To each his own.

      • Bubbsy says:

        I would think the meat that makes the dog might make the difference for the right sauce. An all beef dog? Sure, mayo could work! For old-school down-and-dirty lips-and-toes dog? BBQ sauce! (because it’s pork & chicken)

      • Noodlez says:

        Yep count me in on the mustard nope, mayo yay! On my hot dog, on my corn dog (yes really) on my fries……

    • SallyMae says:

      You clearly aren’t from the South. We put mayo on everything around here!

      • Raiders757 says:

        @ SallyMae: Actually, I am from “the south”, and know southerners love to ruin everything with mayo, but I have never in my life seen anyone put mayo on a hot dog.

        Nor have I seen anyone dip a corn dog in mayo like Noodlez mentioned. I do know people who love to dip their fries in it though, but it’s normally mixed with ketchup.

        • Blousey says:

          What a shame to go through life thinking that the “right” way to do everything is limited to what you see other people doing.

          • AlexG says:

            Plus one on what Blousey said.

            I hate lettuce on Cheese Burgers and think it never belongs but don’t care that the entire world screws up Cheese Burgers by having it on there…hahaha

          • Raiders757 says:

            @ Blousey: Nowhere did I say there was a “right” or “wrong” way to do things. Seems you and Alex need to brush up on your reading comprehension. All I said was that I’ve never seen anyone do it, and gave my opinion of it. Nowhere did I slander or bash anyone for doing so.

            The “right” way to eat anything is the way you like it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion, positive, or otherwise, about it.

            What a shame going through life with little to no reading comprehension.

            …hahaha Doh!!!

          • Blousey says:

            @Raider, I was carrying on in agreement with your lament of everyone in the south putting mayo on everything as a geographical habit, as in — that’s how we do it in the south. Also, nobody accused you of slandering or bashing anyone. The reading comprehension you speak of would have picked up on that.

          Wienerschnitzel has done it twice, on the bacon strip street dog http://www.wienerschnitzel.com/food/hot-dogs/bacon-strip-street-dog/

          and the loaded bacon strip street dog http://www.wienerschnitzel.com/food/hot-dogs/loaded-bacon-street-chili-cheese-dog/

          I thought it sounded weird at first, but the first one is actually very good, it kind of has a blt vibe to it. The version with the chili and mayo was a bit strange, I never had a desire to order one of those again, but it might work better with a spicier chili

        • Joe says:

          My step father was from California, apparently it’s a pretty popular thing to have mayo on a hot dog out there. Kind of grosses me out myself, but to each their own I suppose.

  5. Jonathan Wayne says:

    This doesn’t seem good, not at all.

  6. Johnnyboy says:

    You know what’s funny…in Europe they use MAYO to eat their French fries…especially in Belgium. Now, I prefer to use Mayo for my hash browns in the morning from Chic-fil-A. Mayo is great for French fries too. I sometimes use 3 parts mayo to 1 part mustard for a wonderful dipping sauce. Sorry for the rant, but I wouldn’t use or even thought of eating a hot dog with Mayo. But I will give them a try anyway from BK, because when it is no longer being offered, I could always say, I had it. LOL!

  7. Johnnyboy says:

    Just had the Whopper one, trust me it tastes good!!!

  8. Ryan says:

    Does Burger King even care anymore?

  9. BBB says:

    1/3 sriracha 2/3 mayo. that is the only way i see mayo being good on a dog. that mix is great on breakfast burritos, sandwiches, etc. i think i may try that actually!

  10. Snackeroo says:

    BK is a hot ass mess. I wouldn’t be surprised if they closed down in the future. Their food just isn’t good enough and if Chicken Fries Rings and Whopper Dog are their best ideas moving forward, they might as well give up now.

    • SPM79 says:

      I guess you haven’t read a financial journal lately, BK’s owners are doing quite well the past year and BK has a lot to do it.

      • AlexG says:

        Which surprises the hell out of me that they are doing well financially!!

        Most of the BK’s i’ve seen are dirty empty disasters!!

        Are the corporate bean counters just cutting cost on food ingrediants to drive up profit?

        What gives here? BK has to be the worst rated national chain IMO.

        • Raiders757 says:

          I have to agree with Alex. Every Burger King in my area has tumbleweeds blowing through their parking lots once breakfast hours are over with.

          Seems the “financial journal”, as always, is blowing smoke up the investors collective asses.

          • Blousey says:

            Because your occasional random observation of a parking lots of the handful of BKs in your “area” represents the financial health of an enterprise with 10,000+ locations around the world? I would think the actual financial health of a company goes a long way to help analyze how well they are performing vs. the in-depth analysis of bottomboi617 who tweeted that there weren’t many cars in a parking lot and there were straw wrappers in the landscaping.

          • alexG says:

            @Blousey or anyone else?

            This isn’t scientific, based on seeing “empty” parking lots or “dirty” restaurants, but anyone see a successful BK chain? Correct they have thousands of restaurants, and we can’t be visiting them all but the ones I’ve seen were always empty.

            They have to cutting corners somewhere to be making those financial numbers because I don’t see anything food wise that is bringing people in those doors.

  11. Sascha says:

    This one actually interests me. I have some coupons, but they don’t include the chili dog. Since this is the same pricepoint as the regular, maybe they’d take the coupon for it.

  12. serpico009 says:

    with all these other fast food chains going the premium sandwich and natural ingredients direction, looks like BK has decided to doubledown on going teh other way with it.

    • AlexG says:

      Because even Burger King knows that they would never be able to sell the idea of a “Premium Sandwich” and get away with it… hahahhaha

  13. MP says:

    Get rid of the mayo & ketchup, add some celery salt, cucumber wedges & sport peppers & you almost have a Chicago dog there.

    • Lochlain says:

      I thought the same thing.. why not just make a chicago dog? I’d order that for a quick hotdog fix but not this one

  14. Jonathan Wayne says:

    Thanks for the real photo of it, it looks even worse than I thought it would.

  15. Walter says:

    The picture shows mustard on it…….a whopper does not have mustard……

    • Sascha says:

      Yeah,threw me of too. And the description in the second does not last mustard. So either Darian ordered it with or BK screwed it up.

  16. Shaun says:

    I just wish someone would sell Hebrew National ones! I can’t eat that mush everyone else calls a product.

    • Matt says:

      Agreed. Those and Nathans to me are the best. I love when people say “they’re too expensive!!!”. when $4.50 for 8 hot dogs is too expensive……you may want to rethink your job……

  17. Joe says:

    Reminds me of the Mac Snack Wrap idea. It’ll crash and burn, which is unfortunate because I really liked the MSW. Then again when I make a BLT at home, I do it in a flour tortilla with ranch instead of mayo too, so… maybe I’m just biased on tortillas instead of buns.

  18. Joe says:

    I can’t imagine that the hot dog, bun and toppings cost less than the fries and the 5-cents-to-produce soda. It’s no wonder BK has become so irrelevant considering they’re practicing decades-old marketing ploys like upcharging for products that cost less than their main offerings. $1.99 for the dog, $2.89 upcharge for the meal (starting at a small)? Ridiculous.

  19. James Miller says:

    Well I hate onions on my hamburgers and hotdogs, yet every place is compelled to put them on them!
    I tried one of the grilled dogs when they first came out and was a burnt and blackend horrible thing. I can only hope they learned how to cook them since then.

  20. James Miller says:

    But honestly, what is the point of a “whopper dog”? I only ever like mustard (maybe ketchup) and chili on my dog anyways. I would never add lettuce, tomatoes and mayo to it.
