Burger King went crazy: They’re adding hot dogs to the menu.

They spent a year and a half on R&D, including how to get actual grill marks on the thing.

$1.99 is the starting price point.

You can get it two ways: a classic dog with relish, chopped onions, ketchup, and mustard or a chili cheese dog.

The company said it wants to offer the Whopper of hot dogs.”

Yeahhhhhh…I dunno.
