Now I'm thinking of Eddie Murphy and the welfare burger his mama made him.

Just like  the ones made with the Tang. You have to pinch the corners

According to Merriam Webster's dictionary it certainly is:

a : two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between

Why is a Philly Cheese Steak considered to be a sandwich but a hot dog is not? They are both meat in a bun.

@240B

I don't know about Philly cheese steaks, I never had one.  But in this house, and in every reasonable mind, a sandwich is made by putting a piece of bread horizontally on a plate, placing whatever you want for filling, and then topping with another slice of bread.  I never once heard anybody say, "Oh, so you're having hot dogs tonight?"  "That's right, we're having sandwiches."

@CatherineofArgon

True. I agree. For some inexplicable reason the lowly hot dog has secured a place in our minds as being its 'own thing'. I know what you mean. A hot dog can never be anything but a hot dog. Even though it is really just a type of sandwich.

If you take the wiener out of the bun and replace it with roast beef, then you have a roast beef sandwich. Strange but true. Must be a cultural thing. I don't know.

All hotdogs are sandwiches but not all sandwiches are hotdogs.

@240B

Does a Philly cheese steak have the same type of split bun?

Maybe it's because a hot dog wouldn't fit between two slices of bread?

If you cut a hot dog in half horizontally and then cut the halves in half vertically, you can lay the four pieces flat on a sandwich. It is like a baloney sandwich. At that point it is no longer a hotdog. It has become a hotdog sandwich.

@CatherineofAragon You really must!

And if you ever head up to Philly, please be sure to go to Geno's, not Pat's.  Just be sure to check with @Jazzhead or me before ordering, so you don't get thrown out of line!

You ain't missing much.  It is a nasty sammitch the lower class embraced years ago.  It probably started as somebody's mom's left-over mystery meat back in the depression.  It tastes so bad they had to put it on a stale roll and smother it with onions and other shit.  When that didn't cut the horrid taste some nut decided to drown it in melted cheese.

See. that's just gross.  Why not just do the right thing and have a steak.

Chopping up the steak makes for more surface area.

Geno's is indeed better than Pat's;  the meat's sliced just a wee bit thicker.   And at either place, the steaks are fresh as a daisy because they churn 'em out, 24/7.  Literally.  It is a ritual of Philly nightlife to end the evening at four in the morning at the corner of 9th and 'Shunk,  where the two esteemed establishments face off like pugilists, neon ablaze.   

These days,  my favorite cheesesteak is the little beauty they serve up at Ready's in Ocean City, New Jersey.   Ready's is an old-style lunch counter;  one of my rituals is to take the Saturday Wall Street Journal,  sit at the counter at Ready's with a steak and the fluffiest crinkle-cut fries I've ever tasted, and pontificate about politics and the Phillies with whatever unfortunate is sitting next to me.

I've had some great late-night chats at that mess of an intersection,including with a radio talk-show host I recognized.
