Sam's Casino Hot Dogs

I have noticed a trend, disturbing for me, for Sam's Hot Dog Stand locations being opened as part of a gambling parlor. Malden and Marmet were the first two such places but a new one has opened on Greenbrier Street in Charleston. I'm not sure if these are hot dog joints that have gambling rooms attached or gambling parlors that offer hot dogs to their addicts, I mean customers. Is this a new corporate direction for Sam's? Does anyone care?

Nope, dont care at all. As long as they do a good dog.
I dont gamble so they will not get any of my money in that part.
But I dont drink anymore either but I and I believe you have had some darn good dogs in bars, pool halls and beer joints.

This isn't the first time I've seen this sort of thing happen (video lottery/gambling places attached to HDJs or other restaurants)....see this post on Lupo's in Fairmont at as an example.

Unfortunately, it's a growing trend. I normally try to avoid reviewing places like this at all, on account of the quality of the food ultimately takes a back seat to the hand-over-fist profit made be exploiting the addictions of a few.
