West Virginia Hot Dog Map

I've been told that a true West Virginia hot dog is a heavenly creation that begins with a wiener on a bun. Add mustard, a chili-like sauce and top it off with coleslaw and chopped onions.

However, coleslaw is not a standard topping at hot dog joints everywhere in West Virginia. The food culture is diverse and influenced by many factors such as predominate ethnicities and a melding with cultures of surrounding states. This West Virginia Hot Dog Map project attempts to document this diversity.
