Grillbilly's Drive In (Princeton, WV)
Princeton, WV, T: 304-487-2201
I came across Grillbilly's Drive In by accident, on my way to Starbucks for coffee and breakfast. I couldn't resist, and decided to go for a burger rather than a croissant; after all, it was already 11 am! Fortunately it was a pleasant morning, as Grillbilly's has no place inside, only one table with benches outside. It has a classic snack offering: burgers, hot dogs, and other fried meats.
As it was still morning, I only had place for a burger, no fries etc., but I made it a big one... the Big Evil Burger! The Big Evil come on a big mush bun, has a thick patty, three pieces of crisp bacon, lettuce, tomato, mustard, hot sauce, jalapeno peppers, and pickles. The Big Evil does almost everything perfectly... almost everything! Oddly enough, the burger itself wasn't convincing. The texture and taste were quite mediocre. That said, the Big Evil Burger is one tasty burger!
Grillbilly's Drive In is a true snack shack run by two big tattooed guys. Based on my encounter with the Big Evil Burger, it is definitely worth a visit... if you ever find yourself in the neighborhood of Princeton, West Virginia.
