“It’s been 17 years since this West Virginia hillbilly and
California city girl followed our dreams of being together
and opening a weenie stand along the riverbank of the Ohio River
in Lesage, West Virginia.
In the fall of 1999, we built a 12x16 building on the land where
Sonny grew up and Hillbilly Hotdogs opened its doors for the
very first time on September 6, 1999 but then we closed three
days later so we could get married - we have renewed our vows
over 30 times since!
A decade and a half later, we are still crazy in love and still
going strong. We have outgrown and upgraded from that 12x16
building; we added two old school busses and we continue to
grow more and more every day. We owe our success to all of you
thousands of weenie lovers who visit us each and every year.
Thank Ya’ll so much for your continued support and patronage!
-Sonny and Sharie Knight
