Burger King is delving into a largely untapped fast food market with the introduction of flame-grilled hot dogs. Dubbed “Grilled Dogs,” the new item will be available at participating locations nationwide starting Feb. 23 and is set to be a permanent menu fixture.

According to a statement from Burger King, the restaurant’s latest addition will be available in two different variations, the Classic Grilled Dog and the Chili Cheese Dog. While both will be made with 100 percent beef and served in a baked bun, the Classic will be topped with ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and relish, and the Chili Cheese will be smothered in — you guessed it — chili and cheese.

“The introduction of Grilled Dogs just made sense to our guests and for our brand,” said Alex Macedo, the North American President of the fast food chain. “We’re applying over 60 years of flame-grilling expertise with the Whopper sandwich to make Grilled Dogs the next great American icon.”

Classic Grilled Dogs will be available for $1.99 or as part of a combo meal for $4.49, while Chili Cheese Dogs will be sold for $2.29 or as part of a combo meal for $4.79.
