South Charleston Daity Bar (Charleston, WV)
120 D Street, Charleston, WV 25303, T: 304-744-6735
The South Charleston Dairy Bar is a classic small-town snack bar, serving all-American snacks and frozen dairy products. It hasn't been updated since it opened, I assume in the 1950s, and is run by a couple of nice local women.
I ordered a Bacon Double Burger, a hot dog, and a small banana shake, together $8.24. The hot dog comes on a toasted bun with chili, slaw, onions, and mustard. Many different tastes, but the sausage is too small to add any taste to it. The Bacon Double Burger consists of two thin patties, lettuce, pickle, bacon, tomato, ketchup, mustard and mayo. The bacon is tough and the tomato is as thick as the two patties together, but overall it is a greasy but fine burger. Finally, the shake has real banana in it, but is too sweet.
The South Charleston Dairy Bar is a run in the mill snack bar, which can be found in roughly any small and large town in the US. It serves decent snacks, but nothing remarkable.
