Here's a saliva-inducing fact for Buffalo hot-dog lovers: Ted's Hot Dogs will celebrate its 92nd anniversary on Feb. 20 by offering regular hot dogs for 92 cents.
Ted's nine Western New York locations will participate in the deal during business hours Wednesday. A regular hot dog from Ted's usually runs for $3.05, so this is a pretty significant savings. Customers may order as many hot dogs as they please.
For those concerned about closing times, the downtown location, at 124 W. Chippewa St. closes the earliest at 8:30 p.m., while the Cheektowaga (3637 Union Road) and Tonawanda (2312 Sheridan Drive) locations keep serving until 10 p.m.
An additional part of Ted's celebration is a chance to bid on golden keychains - the local restaurant chain gave away 10 of these last year - which serve as a lifetime buy-one-get-one-free coupon for customers, who would receive a free regular hot dog with a purchase of any grilled item and a drink.
Proceeds from the auction's winning bids, which may be done at any location, will benefit Ted's Youth Foundation.
