National Chili Dog Day is Thursday, July 30 and Gold Star is celebrating by giving away a free cheese coney — with the purchase of any regular Pepsi product — for dine-in, carry-out or drive-thru.
All 75 Gold Star locations will be offering one free cheese coney with Pepsi purchase.
Gold Star served 7,257,859 coneys to guests in 2019, according to a press release, or the equivalent of 573-plus miles — further than the driving distance from Cincinnati to New York City (569 miles).
Here's how Gold Star describes their little meaty creation: a "unique combination of a locally-sourced hot dog placed into a freshly steamed bun, completed by Gold Star’s family recipe chili and topped off with savory, shredded Wisconsin cheddar cheese. Onions and mustard, of course, are optional."
“As our renovated restaurants and expanded offerings have shown, Gold Star has always sought to bring new, delicious options for our guests to enjoy — but the chili will always be the tasty pillar of our menu,” said Roger David, president and CEO of Gold Star. “You can’t think of the Cincinnati food scene without thinking of the cheese coney Cincinnati chili. Given that we serve millions of coneys at our locations every year, Gold Star fans have ensured the only place these chili dogs will be going anywhere soon is into their hands.”
