Q&A from Readers

FreeHollowBooks writes and says "I'm hankerin for a new review......I check everyday. Who has the hottest sauce in WV btw?"


Well, FreeHollow, I just posted a new review. And there is no question that Yann's Hot Dogs in Fairmont has the hottest sauce in the state. It is insanely hot. So hot that it has apparently killed the brain cells of many Fairmont hot dog fans since they are nearly the only ones in the state who stubbornly insist that coleslaw shouldn't be put on hot dogs.


HaveFoodWillTravel asks  "is there a festival that truly captures the wv dog culture? i would like to know if there is. my favorite dog to date is from the parkway in logan, wv."


Unfortunately no, HaveFood. The Southern Ohio Hot Dog Festival that is held in Huntington each July is called The W.Va. Hot Dog Festival, but we all know the truth. Last year some of the vendors didn't even have slaw. And kudos to you for liking Parkway;s hot dogs; just another great HDJ in Logan, where they know how to do hot dogs right. Hey, why doesn't Logan have the REAL WV Hot Dog Festival?

We need to find a Coal Fields weenie wonk, but all potential applicants keep trying to namedrop Landau before answering any questions about cabbage texture, sauce spiciness, or the proper dice on an onion.

I'm new to the blog and have a general comment only... I looked at the facebook WV Hot Dog page and still vote for the Dairy Queen, Scott Depot, WV hot dot as the most delightful experience you will ever have.

FreeHollowBooks here......I made the trek to Yanns this Tuesday and you are correct. Spicy delicious sauce. Prompt service. Charming atmosphere. They get my vote for the best hotdog on the planet. Go early and try a pepperoni roll with sauce. I even added some of my own dried habanero pepper for an extra kick, but NO ketchup.

Two things here:

1) Where on earth are your updates? I need to know where else is WV hotdog-approved.

2) Who decided that hotdogs MUST come with slaw? I mean, I'm okay with them either way, but I'm curious who made that official rule. And I'm curious where in the northern part of the state, if any, has the best hotdog?
