Charleston Area Hot Dog Joints - DeliFresh - Bullitt Street

Right across from Joe Fazio's on Bullitt Street, as part of the BB&T operations center complex, sits a little lunch spot that is operated for the benefit of BB&T employees. I have found that anyone can patronize the place and since it is very close to my office I sometimes do. Much of the food they offer is best thought of as fuel, not entertainment. I'd imagine most of their business is from the captive audience that BB&T provides and so don't vote on the quality the way most restaurant patrons do (with their feet!).

But for you, the WV Hot Dog public, I sacrifice myself so you may know the truth. The truth is that the dogs at DeliFresh aren't bad at all.

The first thing you notice is the bun. Not your basic WVHD variety but at least twice as large in volume. Everything is chili, slaw and onions. You can get a pack of mustard from the condiment rack if you want it. The chili is meatier than most with a pretty good flavor. The weenie was strange - really dark in color and it tasted a lot better than it looked. The slaw was definitely factory made and way too coarse, but it was fairly tasty. Overall a decent, if not classic, WVHD.
