You probably have heard of the Dairy Queen in Hinton, which overlooks the beautiful river.
But there are actually some delicious restaurants in Hinton, including this gem of Kirk's.
Kirk's has the same beautiful view of the river - if not better - and serves some homestyle dishes that people love.
The restaurant serves breakfast, but I knew I needed to try one of their hot dogs.
Look at that view!
Lots of fishermen in this area.
The menu at this restaurant is so neat - pointing out landmarks and fun places in the county.
A slawdog with chili, mustard and onions on an grilled English bun. Side of onion rings.
Nearby Sandstone Falls.
And the Johny Henry statue in Talcott!

Rolled ice cream has made its way to Charleston, and this trendy dish is making a name for itself.
Scrapers Rolled Ice Cream, located in the mall, had only recently opened when I went, but it was still steadily busy.
The menu allows you to customize your ice cream and toppings, but there are also "specialty" ones.
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!
These are actually pretty large - and thick! - so there's a good bit in there. What's your favorite one?

I think I've tried just about everything there is to eat at the mall. Except Fresh Wraps & Grill.
This food court spot is a counter-service concept that essentially makes a wrap - or salad - right in front of you.
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?

I'm slowly making my way through the Mexican restaurants in Charleston, and Las Trancas was next on the list.
This Mexican restaurant, located on Corridor G, is a bit newer and more modern than some others in the area.
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, I believe, has a few other restaurants in the state.
First, queso and salsa.
I swear, I could just live on the queso.
Enchiladas Mar y Tierra - one potato, shrimp & crab, and shredded beef enchilada covered in cheese sauce!

Mountain Pie Company has a location in Hurricane, and another here in St. Albans.
The really cool thing about this pizza place is that it overlooks the river. So, perfect for those days where you want to relax.
I ordered some pepperoni rolls, which are served with their signature pizza sauce.
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.

The Spot is the alleged area where the Flatwoods Monster landed.
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 serves up ice cream, plus sandwiches, fried appetizers, and more. There's a little of everything!
And, they serve "Flavor Bursts," which are those pretty swirled ice cream cones.
But, it's hard for me to pass up anything that resembles a blizzard. So, I got a Reese's "Razzle."
And, an order of fried hot pepper bites.
Have you been?

Chimney Corner Cafe is a fun restaurant that sits in this intersection right before Hawk's Nest.
I've passed it many times, but only recently stopped after checking out the gift shop across the way.
They have plenty of outdoor seating and even a pavilion area which would be perfect for shows.
It's even tiered so everyone could see!
The menu is simple, but they do have daily specials.
Their daily special on this day was pulled pork french fries. That seemed like a perfect snack.
And, here are some views after I went to Hawk's Nest! Never actually made it to this overlook before!
The tram is unique.
And, I even took a jetboat ride!
