This Tiny Shop In West Virginia Serves Hot Dogs To Die For

At the intersection of Washington Street and Jefferson Street in Fairmont, West Virginia, sits an unassuming little shop. You might not even notice it if you were passing by. But what’s served here is quite a legend in West Virginia, and even the surrounding states.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Some other important notes: Yann’s is only open Tuesday-Friday. It’s cash only. There is very limited seating, so you may want to take your dogs to go. They can freeze dogs in advance to take home or to ship to other states.

Some people travel hundreds of miles just to get a taste of these hot dogs. We’re fortunate to have them right here in West Virginia.

What do you think? Does Yann’s have the best hot dogs in West Virginia, or should someone else take the crown?
