Hillbilly Hotdogs made it to #15 for those who didn't get to watch the final show. Here's the link to the shows website.

They've had some good exposure over the last couple of years. I talked to the people there a couple of months ago and they said that they were trying to get Adam Richman from Man vs Food there to come to Huntington and try one of the eating challenges. That would be pretty neat as well.

I love all the publicity this place recieves. I've never ventured over to the Lesage location, but have eaten at the downtown store, and at their booth at the Hot Dog Festival.

I haven't lived in W.Va. for almost 40 years, but remember the great Hot Dogs there when I was growing up.
Use to go to the Mecca Drive Inn. Hot Dogs 10 cents or 3 for a quarter.

Never found them that good anywhere else !!!
