The Difference Between Italian Sausage & Hot Dogs, North Gates, New York

When you’re craving fast food, a warm slab of bread with Italian sausage or a fresh hot dog inside topped with your favorite condiments is sure to hit the spot. They are both popular lunch menu items, but many diners have little idea how to differentiate between these sandwich options. While they may look alike in nature, Italian sausage and hot dogs are vastly different. Rochester, NY’s, Steve T. Hots & Potatoes, proudly serves spicy Italian sausages and Zweigles® hot dogs, but before you order, take some time to understand what makes each bite unique. 

What is the Difference Between Italian Sausage and Hot Dogs on a Lunch Menu?

Italian Sausage

This savory sandwich is perfect for any diner who is looking for a hint of sweetness and herbaceous flavor in each bite. Italian sausage is made with coarsely ground pork and flavored with bold garlic and fennel seed, which has a slightly sweet licorice taste. If you’re partial to a spicier lunch item, many Italian sausages are made with a hint of red pepper flakes to add a kick. In most cases, places serve this meal with grilled, sweet onions, and fried peppers on a crunchy roll. 

lunch menuHot Dogs

The American hot dog is a classic staple on lunch menus everywhere. Made from beef or pork products, hot dogs are cased to ensure the perfect “snap” upon biting in. They are usually grilled, boiled, or steamed, depending on the eatery and your preferred serving method. The benefit of indulging in this sandwich is that you can dress it up in any way you prefer. Add spicy mustard, traditional ketchup, salty relish, or sauerkraut. If you’re looking for a hearty dish, add cheese or chili.

No matter if you prefer sausage or hot dogs, Steve T. Hots & Potatoes has you covered. This 24-hour restaurant has perfected these and other American staples, like cheeseburgers, fried ham, and macaroni salad. Can’t decide what you want?
