Lesage, West Virginia

A GREAT stop for Guy and DDD. This was my second trip to enjoy the hot dogs.

This time I got the "Coal Miner"–deep fried dog with homemade chili, mustard, onions and blackening seasoning and the "taco dog"–dog, nacho cheese, jalapenos, chili, lettuce, tomatoes, picante, sour cream, cheese and tostito chips.

I liked the "coal miner" better.
