Slaw Dog (Charleston)
In a handful of states including West Virginia, Georgia, and North Carolina, cole slaw is the hot dog topping of choice, generally alongside mustard and chili. It’s usually mayonnaise-based, though vinegary BBQ (red) slaw is more common in parts of western North Carolina.
Where to Get It: A beloved roadside institution since the 1950s, West Virginia’s Skeenies is a great bet for this regional specialty, where ordering with “everything” gets you ketchup and onions in addition to the usual creamy-white slaw, chili, and mustard, in a soft steamed bun. 2399 Sissonville Dr., Charleston, WVBack to top
