I was having this disagreement with my nephew. When you have hot dog what is the name of bread you put it in. I call it a ROLL and this why. Now, maybe it's a New England thing, when we go to a restaurant or diner a very popular item on the menu is a CLAM ROLL or LOBSTER ROLL. A BUN is something you put a hamburger on or what women do to their hair.

What is your terminology for the bread that you put your hot dog/clam or lobster on?

PS I have never seen on restaurant menu: CLAM BUN OR LOBSTER BUN....I'm just saying!Mark

Plain as day, it is a bun for hot dogs.

Lobster meat goes on a roll, of course.

I have never seen clam or lobster ROLL on a restaurant menu either, but I've never visited your corner of the world. In the Midwest, it is called a bun. They come in side split and top split (often called a coney bun).

Brat buns are a larger version to accommodate the larger size of bratwurst (or smoked sausage, Italian sausage, etc.). They usually come 6 to a package instead of 8, as with hot dog buns.

Hoagie rolls would be the exception, but can also be called submarine buns.

In parts of the south, where I spent many years, there are Po-Boy buns.

Hamburgers are often served on a bun, but there are also Kaiser rolls, which are often used for burgers, too.

Confused yet?

Then, there is the BUN candy, which is really tasty.

To make things worse, at least in NYC, we have Chinese steamed buns which are not anything like hot dog buns; they are the dough which encloses dim sum.

If you haven't seen it yet, there was a recent thread in this section with a fun quiz pinpointing your location based on certain regionalisms.

Hot dogs come on hot dog rolls. Hamburgers come on hamburger rolls. I like onion rolls.

Never heard of an onion bun.

They're on the shelf next to the Moxie.

But... man cannot live by bread alone... So, what say you, you Café foodies??

Hot dog (as in Armour), wiener (as in Oscar Mayer), weenie (as in weenie roast), frank (as in Ball Park), coney (as in coney dog sauce), frankfurter (as in... well, you know who you are), foot-long (as in foot-long chili dog), dawg (as in some Georgia cracker can't spell), red hot (as in OK, those are good), Polish sausage (as in "Just get a *** hot dog, fool"), tube steak (as in you're an idiot), or corn dog (as in no bun {or roll} required)??

It's a hotdog bun and a hamburher bun. Rolls are the Kaiser type in NYC where they're covered with poppy or sesame seeds. And while in NYC there's also the best crumb buns in the world, but aren't at all like hot dog or hamburger buns. Danish used to be called buns when I was a kid in NYC, but now they're just Danish.

Then there's the bagel. NYC has the only best bagels in the world. Why? It's all about the water. Just sayin'.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

They're awesome...fortunately, I live very close to Linx. Definitely one of my top-10 vegan restaurant options (not a vegan restaurant, but top vegan options).

I've always called them hamburger rolls, not buns. Bun sounds a bit sissy. Besides, in the part of Jersey I'm from, you're much more likely to get rolled than bunned.

Should the roll be on a roll or a bun?

Except when we have dinner rolls. Or Kaiser rolls. Or a few others.
