Grafton Edition: Biggie's
My quest to finish trying all the drive ins in West Virginia has ramped up ever since the Charleston Gazette-Mail started their drive-in series. What I would give to be doing that assignment! Trying all the drive ins left in the state has been a bucket list thing of mine, and I have about six done and five more to go.
Biggie's, located in Grafton, is the only drive in remaining in the northern part of West Virginia. We made the quick drive out from Morgantown and pulled into a spot. We waited for a few minutes, but nobody came out - so I'm not sure if they still do curbside service or not. My stomach wasn't willing to find out. We went inside and looked over the menu of options.
They have burgers, hot dogs, fish sandwiches, chicken salad, ham sandwiches, BLTs, chicken sandwiches plus tons of sides like coleslaw, applesauce, deep-fried mushrooms (mm), broccoli and cheese, hot cheese balls, corn nuggets, onion rings and more.
I ordered two hotdogs (I feel like that's a very drive-in thing to do) with "everything," which included chili, mustard and onions. I also got slaw for an additional charge. And I ordered a side of small cheddar cheese balls. Deep-fried cheese, how can you pass that up?
My hotdogs were pretty good! The sauce was a little different - chunks in a very thin sauce so it wasn't the same overall consistency. But the slaw was delicious, and the bun was steamed. The cheese balls were delicious. Hot, cheesy, crunchy - what more do you need in life?
Biggie's does take Visa and Mastercard. They are open 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week.
