    I say no. It's a sausage.
    Here's why it's not a sandwich: because in general, the bun comes as one unit. If you cut a hot dog up and place that in a hamburger bun, then that's a hot dog sandwich.

    A taco isn't a sandwich for the same reason, except that if you put the ground up horsemeat into anything other than a shell, it ceases to be a taco.

    Only highly intellectual people who are extraordinarily wealthy and sexually dominant who like things inside of other things.

    I think she's wrong, btw. If a hot dog is a sandwich, then so are tacos.

    Tacos are not sandwiches because they are not made with bread.
    Per your theory about the bun being one unit - a Philly cheese steak isn't a sandwich either.

    I sandwich my hot dog between two tits all the time, so I guess yes, it is a sandwich.

    You're right, it's not a sandwich.

    It is, however, disgusting.

    But next time you're at a proper bbq, cut up a brat into thin slices and put them on your burger.

    An open faced sandwich is a sandwich on one slice of bread. If the bread is folded, it is still a sandwich. A hot dog is a sandwich made with folded bread.

    *hotdogs

    grammar is not for poor people. Hotdogs are not either although some are marketed to the financially challenged.
