Why hamburgers are better than hot dogs? Hamburgers are easier to get, and they also taste better than hot dogs. Hamburgers are sold in most of the fast food restaurants, and hot dogs are not. Hot dogs are cheaper than hamburgers, but are not health for you, because of the low meat quality. Hamburgers have more nutrients from the higher meat quality and from the veggies on it, like tomato, lettuce, onion, and more, and they also have cheese on them to.
