While you might expect a donut place to sell this kind of hot dogs, I assure you that the hot dogs they are selling now at Donut Connection in Kanawha City are the real deal.
Other than serving them up in a coffin, I can't say anything negative about these dogs. They have a good amount of nice tasting chili (about average spiciness and texture for Charleston) and a huge helping of really good slaw (that has a slight yellow tint to it that makes me wonder if it's not influenced by KC hot dog joints past). It lacks a steamed bun, but it was fresh and soft enough to do without. The onions were about right in size and taste.
While nothing special was present that made Donut Connection a hot dog destination, I think they still earn a solid 4 Weenie rating. Surprising place to find hot dogs, especially good ones; but then again, there is a precedent for such things in the immediate vicinty.
