CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Is a hot dog a sandwich? Who really cares what it's called as long as it's delicious.
It was decided by the National Hot Dog and Sausage council that July 14 is National Hot Dog day. (They are serious about the food. They even share a video on how to properly eat a chili dog.)
It's estimated that on Independence Day alone, Americans ate 150 million -- that's enough to stretch from ou nation's capitol to Los Angeles more than five times.
During "peak hot dog season," from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Americans typically eat 7 billion hot dogs. That's 818 hot dogs consumed every second during that period of time.
So if you didn't haven't had enough hot dogs yet this summer, here are nine different places to have one for lunch or dinner outside of Cleveland.
