Roanoke Weiner Stand 1/21/2011
Roanoke Virginia is a hotdog rich city. And one of its best is the Roanoke Weiner Stand. Since 1916 the Weiner Stand has made one of the best dogs in the U.S. This, the original Roanoke Weiner Stand, resides in downtown Roanoke near the historic farmers market. The hotdogs here are grilled and the buns are steamed in a steam-box. My two dogs were topped with a slap of mustard, onions and chili. The dogs were excellent! These chilidogs are definitely some of the best I’ve ever had. Note: The Roanoke Weiner Stand does serve beer.
