Going Back to My Roots

The iconic Frostop restaurant is one of Huntington, W.Va.'s best known and best loved little dives. I was in pure heaven stopping in for a frosty mug of root beer last weekend while visiting family.Frostop has a long history, but this little chain of drive-ins was at its hey day in the 1950s. The menu is simple and relatively inexpensive. You can choose from hot dogs (with or without slaw), BBQ sandwiches, cheeseburgers, onion rings, fries, ice cream and much more.
In a city that loves frankfurters, from Stewart's to Hillbilly Hotdogs, Frostop is the best in my book. Maybe it's the nostalgia more than anything ... there aren't too many places left out there where you can see car hops in action.
