Top 10 Hot Dogs near Fairmont, WV 26554 · Woody’s Restaurant · Yann’s Hot Dog Stand · Wright Dawgs · Hometown Hot Dogs · ATT’s · Dairy Creme Corner · Hometown. Fairmont has a special little hot dog stand that has apparently been around as long as most of the city. Their menu extends beyond hot dogs to include hoagies, pizza, and burgers — like the Husky Burger, which adds Oliverio’s mix of peppers, mozzarella cheese, and bacon to a beef patty. Some of the really unusual regional hot dog sauces (see some here) are more intriguing than delicious, but Yann’s is one of the best
I’ve ever had.
Sam’s Hot Dog Stand has over 45 locations in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Georgia. I’m pretty sure the coleslaw purists at West Virginia Hot Dog Blog think Yann’s is Pennsylvania or Maryland (even though they enjoyed the chili), but locals who grew up with the stuff swear by it like nothing I’ve ever seen. I’ve also dropped off a few on Hot Diggity, and you can check out her review of Yann’s dogs in the video below. Known for its great hot dog sauce — mild, medium, or hot — it makes a great topping not only for hot dogs, but also for their loaded
baked potatoes and pepperoni rolls.
I took a hot dog tour through West Virginia (at least the northern part of the state) and one of my main goals was to finally try the infamous Yann’s. Russell Yann serves hot dogs in a tiny, eight-seat hut with no opening hours and no sign, as well as a barebones menu with hot dogs, pepperoni rolls, and white or brown milk bottles. Russell, the owner of Yann’s Hot Dogs, has been serving these delicious dogs with hot chili sauce since the 1960s
