A lot of restaurants and fast food chains are working to add menu items to accommodate people with all sorts of dietary restrictions and preferences.

That list includes McDonald's, Burger King, Dunkin and Taco Bell just to name a few.

Well now you can Nathan's Famous to the list.

The fast-food chain, best known for their hotdogs, have just announced their brand new plant-based hot dogs and they have already started serving them!

"As plant-based menu items continue to grow in popularity, we are excited to launch the first ever gourmet, plant-based hot dog, a product created not just for our flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan customers, but all who enjoy a healthier diet,” said James Walker, senior VP of restaurants for Nathan's.

This meatless option costs approximately $5.00 per hot dog.

As of now, these meatless hotdogs will only be available in five locations in New Jersey:

  • Jersey Shore Premium Outlets 1 Premium Outlet Way in Tinton Falls
  • Bridgewater Commons, 400 Commons Way in Bridgewater
  • South Bound Brook Mall, 60 Main St. in South Bound Brook
  • Paramus Park Mall, 1073 Paramus Park in Paramus
  • Rockaway Town Square, 301 Mount Hope Ave. in Rockaway

But try not to worry. These new vegan hot dogs should be available at the other Nathan's Famous locations, "in the coming months," according to APP.com.

Now I know what you are thinking...."Nicole, there are no Famous Nathan's locations here in South Jersey!"

Don't panic. There is another option.

Nathan's Famous also sells a "Nathan's Famous Plant-Based Hot Dog Kit For 6" on their website. This includes the vegan hot dogs, hot dog buns and a bottle of Nathan's mustard.

The kit itself costs $45 with an additional $17.65 being added for the cost of shipping.

A little over $60 bucks for a meatless option to be delivered to your doorstep? That is not bad at all.
