How can you pass up a place with a sign that says "Try our world famous Mud Suck Hot Dogs"? I couldn't.
For those who aren't saavy, "Mudsuck" is the informal name of a little community just over the hill from South Charleston. It gets its name from Mudsuck Branch, a tributary of Davis Creek. It gets it notoriety from Mallory Airport, a small private airstrip that sits atop the hill above Mudsuck. The airport has such a quirky reputation in the aviation community that is has become known as "Mudsuck International" by pilots who use it. Mallory's Grocery (I am sure it's owned by the same family) even sells "Mudsuck International Airport" t-shirts and caps. If you have ever landed at Mallory you will never forget it, and I'd imagine some people want a memento of the ocassion.
Well, when I was driving by and saw the "Mudsuck Dog" sign I knew it had to be included on this site so I stopped and had one. I was dissappointed that it was self-serve style. After I finished building it, the dog wasn't bad. Chili and slaw seemed to be homemade and the buns are kept nicely steamed. They even have wax paper sleeves for your "to go" order.
Overall an average dog with a great name.
