It's another Tasty Tuesday! Let's chat about some grub you can have on Tuesday and Wednesday this week!

People have been enjoying IHOP for 61 years. So, to mark what the restaurant is calling its "Panniversary", enjoy short stacks, or three buttermilk pancakes, on Tuesday, July 16 for only 58 cents! We read that since it was founded in 1958 (hence the 58-cent price), the restaurant is throwing it back to the prices in the 1950's. Expect to see vintage logos as well. You have from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to get the deal, and you must dine in to enjoy it. The special is limited to one per person while supplies last at participating locations. It would normally cost almost $6, so this discount is SWEET!

Now, it's time for savory! Wednesday, July 17, is National Hot Dog Day! You can relish all the ways to celebrate... if you think you can ketchup!

Dog Haus will be giving away FREE Haus Dogs. No purchase is necessary, but you must download, register for and scan your Dog Haus app when you dine in to claim the freebie. It's a limit of one free Haus Dog with the app scan per person. There are no additions or substitutions and only available when you dine in. You can also score FREE delivery through its app all day long.

At Portillo's, you have through July 21 to score two hot dogs for $5! You can either place an online order or visit the brand's restaurants to get the deal. Portillo's is best known for its Chicago-style hot dog. Apparently, July is not only the month for National Hot Dog Day, but it's also National Hot Dog Month!

CHAR'D Brisket Dogs and Burgers in Tempe is offering gourmet brisket dogs for $5. Normally, each one would cost $6.95. We were sent a teaser for some of the options. There's the Southern Comfort that has Mac and Cheese on top of the brisket dog with bacon, crispy onions, barbecue sauce and parsley. The Cali Dog is a twist on the Sonoran Dog, with fresh avocado, tomatoes, pesto aioli and crispy onions. The Growler has 100 percent Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar Cheese Sauce, crispy fries, bacon and parsley. There are many more options, including the original CHAR'D Dog.

Love's Travel Stops is partnering with Schwab Meat Company to give away FREE hot dogs. You'll need to present a barcode in order to get the freebie. You'll find the barcode on Love's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17. Only one coupon can be redeemed per person.

Ted's Hot Dogs in Tempe has a great deal to celebrate on Wednesday as well! From open to close the Ted’s Hot Dogs location in Tempe will be serving regular hot dogs for only $.92 each, with no restrictions and each customer can order as many as they would like!

Also, Sonic's regular Happy Hour is from 2 to 4 p.m., and you can enjoy 99-cent corn dogs then as well.

Don't these sound BUNbelievable? ENJOY!
