Personally I don't count it as a sandwich because you don't eat it like a sandwich. The opening of the bun is skywards (unlike a Subway sandwich that is open towards the side) and if you put stuff on it, you can't hold it vertically like a sandwich.
A guy yesterday said a hotdog is "an American taco" because of its design. What do you think?

I don't think a hot dog is a sandwich or a taco. It's a hot dog.
