...ASAT restaurant ranking for 24 May, 2007

Here are my top ten Huntingtonland restaurants as we barrel headfirst into summer:

1) Sam's Hot Dog Stand (all most locations)---Nothing says "summer" like the dog that is the right balance of heat 'n sweet. Note that quality of Sam's locations can vary greatly and, if you have a crappy Sam's in your town, head to any of the locations in Huntington and y'all will be set up proper.
2) Austin's Home-made ice cream---Great ice cream and very good hot dogs.
3) Jim's Steak and Spaghetti---'nuff said
4) Panera Bread---Fast food that makes me feel falsely smug. I like that.
5) Tie: M & M Dairy Bell and Hillbilly Hot Dogs (downtown)---More great hot dogs (I'm seeing a pattern). Also check out HBHD's fried bologna sandwich.
6) Nawab---Best veggie korma between Cardiff and Seattle.
7) McDonald's---An odd choice for a ranking, I know, but their new Southwest Chicken Salad is by far the best new/limited time menu item at any of the regular fast food haunts.
8) Chili's---Best of the clone restaurants in terms of summer grub.
9) Applebee's---Second best.
10) Tudor's Biscuit World---I think I saw a billboard for them once that read "best breakfast ever." They should win a truth in advertising award.

Honorable mention:Midway Drive-in, Calamity Cafe, Mycroft's, Wiggin's, Lorenzo's---We hardly ate yee.

Dishonorable mention: Chili Willi's---Please let everyone know when y'all get your act back together. I haven't heard of anyone having a good experience there since they moved into the old AT&T Wireless building.

Good list, can't disagree with a one.

By the way, there seems to be some work going on at the now-closed Midway every day as I pass by it. Could it be re-opening!?!

For a great fried bologna sammich you need to goto Andy's grill across the street from WVSU in Institute. Not only is it a great sammich, but Andy's offers a kickass ghetto atmosphere.. And you can enjoy your meal with a cold 40oz from the cooler if you so desire.

Also, I discovered that Arby's now has its own BBC.. While its not as tasty as the RAX version we know and love, it beats not being able to have a hot BBC if'n you want one.

Man I miss Rax. It is one of the few restaurants that I will seek out if I am in a area that supposedly still has one.
