CHERRY HILL, Nj (CBS) — A South Jersey restaurant hit a home run with Phillies fans on Thursday, offering dollar dogs during the regular season opener.

The Cool Dog Cafe along Route 70 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey reduced three dollar hot dogs to one dollar during the Phillies game. Toppings were extra.

Fans Jared and Lisa got a great seat in front of one of the flat screen televisions. They got creative with their orders.

“I got cheddar, bacon and chili,” said Jared.

Chili, cheese and Fritos,” Lisa said laughing.

“It’s opening day. That’s all anyone is talking about,” said Ira Guttman, co-owner of the restaurant. “We have hot dogs. Hot dogs…baseball. How could we not be a part of this?”

Cool Dog Cafe was planning other specials during the 2012 baseball season.
