Gram's Specialties in Kanawha City, home of 4 1/2 Weenie hot dogs and Five Star pies is no more. Citing the ol' "want to spend more time with family" excuse, they have closed down.
For those of you feeling nostalgic, you can read our review from 2008 here.

...it has ceased to be.
The little pocket of Huntington in Putnam County, the Monty's Pizza/Sam's Hot Dog Stand, has closed up shop.
Folks in the Hurricane-Scott Depot-Teays Metropolitan Statistical Area will have to jump on I-64 to St. Albans or Barboursville to get their spicy sauce fix.
As for Monty's...no real loss there. Graziano's and Husson's offer much better pies.

The place that Rick Lee pronounced as having the "Best Romanesque Architecture in a Hot Dog Stand" is no more.
I'm sad to report that the excellent hot dogs are no more and that the snack bar has been replaced with a whole host of vending machines that block the old snack bar window like so many mechanized storm troopers.
And yes I looked; none of them vends hot dogs.
