    National Hot Dog Day is quickly approaching on Wednesday, July 17. Get two hot dogs for $1, or a FREE hot dog with your UltraONE kiosk coupon. Obviously, the question on everyone’s minds is “Is this sandwich day or not?” The word sandwich is defined as “an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other fillings between them, eaten as a light meal.” By definition a hot dog bun, while it can be ripped into two pieces, is only one piece of bread. But then this raises the question: What about a hoagie or sub bun? Those pieces of bread are usually connected on one side like a hot dog bun but we refer to them as a hoagie sandwich or a sub sandwich. So why is the debate always about hot dogs?


    Maybe it’s because they’d be upright sandwiches and we’re scared of labels? Maybe it’s because the words “hot dog” and “sandwich” in succession just leave a bad taste in your mouth. Or maybe it’s because originally hot dogs were just supposed to be eaten plain. The hot dog bun was introduced to make it possible to eat hot dogs without burning one’s hands. Have you ever tried to eat a sandwich without a bun in your hands? It is pretty messy and a bit more difficult, as that guy you know who is cutting back on carbs can attest.

    Is a hot dog a sandwich? To be honest, we still don’t know. We can see both sides of the bun on this. What we do know is on National Hot Dog Day (Wednesday, July 17) you can stop into any TA and Petro Stopping Center and TA Express and get two hot dogs for $1, or a FREE hot dog with your UltraONE kiosk coupon. The offer will be valid July 17 only. We hope to celebrate with you!

    They have probably never heard of national hot dog day. lol
    I doubt many will plan any additional stops too be getting a hot dog, at least I wouldn't. lol
    The old giant truckstop in NM used to put quite the feed on for driver appreciation day or week, what ever it was.
    The lube shop down by sweetwaterTx, used to put on a really good free barbeque feed to anybody, customer or not, weekly. I did stop at them when it was handy. They had another location down in the San Antonio area that did shrimp dinners I heard, but never made that one.
