Hinton Edition: Kirk's

Kirks

You probably have heard of the Dairy Queen in Hinton, which overlooks the beautiful river.

Kirks

But there are actually some delicious restaurants in Hinton, including this gem of Kirk's.

Kirks

Kirk's has the same beautiful view of the river - if not better - and serves some homestyle dishes that people love.

Kirks

The restaurant serves breakfast, but I knew I needed to try one of their hot dogs.

Kirks

Look at that view!

Kirks

Lots of fishermen in this area.

Kirks

The menu at this restaurant is so neat - pointing out landmarks and fun places in the county.

Charleston Edition: Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

Rolled ice cream has made its way to Charleston, and this trendy dish is making a name for itself.

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream, located in the mall, had only recently opened when I went, but it was still steadily busy.

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

The menu allows you to customize your ice cream and toppings, but there are also "specialty" ones.

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

S'mores caught my eye, so we went with that. How can I pass up anything s'mores?



In case you wanted a quick view on how they do it - take a look!

Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream

These are actually pretty large - and thick! - so there's a good bit in there. What's your favorite one?

Charleston Edition: Fresh Wraps & Grill

Fresh Wraps & Grill

I think I've tried just about everything there is to eat at the mall. Except Fresh Wraps & Grill.

Fresh Wraps & Grill

This food court spot is a counter-service concept that essentially makes a wrap - or salad - right in front of you.

Fresh Wraps & Grill

Since these are made-to-order, you can create it however you want. They do have a few premade selections you can work from. And I went with a buffalo chicken wrap with all kinds of delicious vegetables.

What's your favorite combo?

Charleston Edition: Las Trancas Mexican Cuisine

Las Trancas

I'm slowly making my way through the Mexican restaurants in Charleston, and Las Trancas was next on the list.

Las Trancas

This Mexican restaurant, located on Corridor G, is a bit newer and more modern than some others in the area.

Las Trancas

The menu has the standard options, and I always try to find something that is essentially a burrito covered in queso because mmm.

Las Trancas

Las Trancas, I believe, has a few other restaurants in the state.

Las Trancas

First, queso and salsa.

Las Trancas

I swear, I could just live on the queso.

Las Trancas

Enchiladas Mar y Tierra - one potato, shrimp & crab, and shredded beef enchilada covered in cheese sauce!

St. Albans Edition: Mountain Pie Company on the River

Mountain Pie Co on the River

Mountain Pie Company has a location in Hurricane, and another here in St. Albans.

Mountain Pie Co on the River

The really cool thing about this pizza place is that it overlooks the river. So, perfect for those days where you want to relax.

Mountain Pie Co on the River

I ordered some pepperoni rolls, which are served with their signature pizza sauce.

Mountain Pie Co on the River

The Freaky Greek pizza with olive oil base, Mediterranean feta, tomatoes, spinach, roasted red peppers, Kalamata olives and red onions then drizzled with a balsamic glaze.

Flatwoods Edition: The Spot Dairy Bar



The spotThe Spot is the alleged area where the Flatwoods Monster landed.

The spot

I love West Virginia folklore. I love even more so that they put an ice cream shop in this place because there's no better combo than folklore and ice cream.

The spot

The Spot serves up ice cream, plus sandwiches, fried appetizers, and more. There's a little of everything!

The spot

And, they serve "Flavor Bursts," which are those pretty swirled ice cream cones.

The spot


But, it's hard for me to pass up anything that resembles a blizzard. So, I got a Reese's "Razzle."
The spot

And, an order of fried hot pepper bites.

The spot

Have you been?

Ansted Edition: Chimney Corner Cafe

Chimney Corner Cafe

Chimney Corner Cafe is a fun restaurant that sits in this intersection right before Hawk's Nest.

Chimney Corner Cafe

I've passed it many times, but only recently stopped after checking out the gift shop across the way.

Chimney Corner Cafe

They have plenty of outdoor seating and even a pavilion area which would be perfect for shows.



Chimney Corner CafeIt's even tiered so everyone could see!

Chimney Corner Cafe

The menu is simple, but they do have daily specials.

Chimney corner

Their daily special on this day was pulled pork french fries. That seemed like a perfect snack.

Chimney Corner Cafe

And, here are some views after I went to Hawk's Nest! Never actually made it to this overlook before!

Chimney Corner Cafe

The tram is unique.

And, I even took a jetboat ride!
