ASK A QUESTION how do you say hotdog ( as in the food ) in spanish???
How do you say the word "hotdog" (the food) in spanish? Can you help?
Don't say "perro caliente" in Argentina. You will be asking for a horny dog.

Hot dog = el perro caliente
You can also say "la salchicha" which is a more general term for sausage/processed meat links.
This is a description my professor from Catalonia, Spain gave to our class. Like many other things, I'm sure there are variations on the usage from place to place.
Perros caliente (hot dogs)
Perro caliente (hot dog)
el salchicha - sausage
Here it is "hotdog" with the English pronunciation (more or less) and there are several hotdog vendors around. Salchicha is a sliced up sausage put a wooden skewer and cooked on a grill. They also sell pieces of beef or chicken on skewers at the same stands.
