Jimmy Buff's Italian dog. I don't get it.

So I finally got around to trying Jimmy Buff's famous Italian dog...and what a disappointment! I just did NOT get it.

Can someone explain the appeal of this "dog" to me? I mean, between the enormous bread and potato, I couldn't even find the hot dog in there. In a hot dog you should be getting SOME dog in every bite - in this one I had to go through 2-3 bites of potato/bread before getting to the dog portion. And when I got there the tiny, pathetic hot dog was pretty much completely overwhelmed by the rest of the fixins.

I know this is an institution and I'm not trying to trash it - but I just don't get it! What am I missing? Did I order it the wrong way? Also, 7 bucks for a bunch of bread and potato? C'mon...I felt robbed.
