Hillbilly Hotdogs!

Sunday afternoon, after church, Ed and I took off for West Virginia. We decided to go to Hillbilly Hotdogs!
We had passed this place one time when we went to Kentucky with our pastor and his wife. On our way back, when we passed it again, I asked Pastor Martin to stop so I could take a couple of pictures and he told me to hurry because it looked like a place where someone might step out and take a shot at us for trespassing. You see, we didn't think it was a legitimate place of business. We just thought it was a junky looking place along the side of the road. Albeit, a very interesting one!

Amazingly, a while back, it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network.!!!!!! It IS a legitmate place of business and a very popular one, having two other locations in Huntington and Lavalette!!

Well, after taking a wrong turn and getting a little lost, we stopped and asked for help with direc tions and finally it made it there just as they were closing at five o'clock BUT Sonny, the owner, was so gracious and waited on us. Oh my! We had some of the. very. best. hotdogs. EVER! We will definitely be going back. We want to take our pastor and his wife!

Now, I had to use the bathroom and I was hoping I didn't have to use an outhouse and thankfully, they had modern restrooms, though the outside had me a-wondering just a bit! *smile*

Here's Ed getting our food!

And here's a W.Va. license plate with my name on it!!

That is hilarious! What a fun place, though I think I would have been wary of it at first, too.

We had so much fun just for the short time we were there and we are definitely looking forward to going back and taking some friends with us! *smile*

It reminds me of an uncle's house when I was little. He owned a junkyard, and you couldn't tell where it stopped, and his private property began.

BTW did you install a hillbilly word verification program? My word was "foodd". I'm not making this up, ask my wife.

Hi Mrs. NB! Well, if you are ever in W.Va, perhaps you could go to one of them! Just go to the website for locations! www.hillbillyhotdogs.com
Hi Sir! Yes, well, that is kind of how this place is, too. And no, I've never even HEARD of a hillbilly word verification program!
