Whether hot dog or hamburger really depends on what brands, type and quality of cooking. I'll try to observe type packaging, etc. of the hot dogs. In Chicago we are blessed with many types of super quality dogs and/or sausages. Some are locally made in the ethnic foods plants. So, if I see something that looks like $1 special ball parks, then I'll pass on the hot dog. If I see a great quality like a Vienna, Nathans, Berg or other great sausage, then I'm on to them whether on or off a bun. Also, I'll notice the condiments. If they have only mustard, and, gasp, catsup, then I'm usually put off.
The hamburger, however, depends on the cook since not much can be told if it's pure beef. Obviously, gnarly, over cooked, curled at the edges are an immediate turnoff. But hearing that there's spices, cheese bits, and maybe hot peppers and spices may prompt me towards the burger. Favorite bun for a medium or medium rare burger in toasted rye bread.
So, it depends!

Turkey hot dogs. I must keep red meat to once a week and keep the size small.

Ground chicken burger with fresh herbs from garden. Add a whole wheat bun and fresh veggies to top with a hint of dijon mustard and you have the best of all worlds!

I agree and figure that hamburger is healthiest. I always buy 90% lean ground round and put my burger on whole grain bread. garnished with ateaspoon of minced garlic,mustard and ketchup. I don't salt my burger because the pickle slices provide the sodium.Sometimes a slice of onion is used which adds a little more orac value to the burger.

Hamburger, definitely!!! You can control how healthy your burger is, while you really cannot control that with a hot dog, because it is processed. I love bison burgers, personally!!! Lower in fat and absolutely delicious if cooked properly!!! Grassfed beef is another excellent choice!!
