    Because if you keep burgers in a tub of hot water they will get soggy?

    Why don't shoe salesmen sell mittens? Ricardo pretty much nailed it on the head.

    The real question is that why restaurants don't sell DVD players.

    The burgers hang too far out of the hot dog buns.

    Hot Dogs are easier and you can make them faster.

    Easier because they are totally pre-cooked, no chance of any raw meat getting served. Also burgers tend to reach a 'done' point when they are served, you leave it warming and it gets way too overdone way too fast. Hot dogs can sit on the grill on low or in water for a long time before they go '7-11' on you.

    Faster because on a grill they take up less square inches, so you can pack more on there at once. During a lunch rush, if you can make 20 hot dogs in the same space as 10 burgers, unless the hamburgers sell for x2 hot dog price, you are losing money.

    There ya go...

    Good answer Joe, at least with Hot Dogs, you don't have to worry about - Rare, Medium, Medium Well, Well done.

    Hamburgers are just too much fuss.

    Also, hot dogs are easier to carry and eat while walking. Think about how many time you're eating a hamburger and it starts slipping out of the back. Sure you can hold it in the wrapper, but that gets annoying too. All in all, hot dogs are just more portable.
