You're right about the DQ on Cumberland Rd. I don't like the one in Princeton at all. I get to go there on Wed. to get me a good BBQ. They really do sell a lot of hot dogs there. Most people who come in there get one.

I thought the one in Princeton used to make a good dog, but that was 40 years ago. I am sure things have changed. My uncle used to live right behind the DQ there so we were there all the time.

The one in Princeton wasn't that clean the last time I was there. If you like BBQ the one on Cumberland has the best around. Been babysitting today so will post hotdog chili recipe as soon as time allows.

Practically all my family worked at the chatterbox. We ate there every Sunday after church.

Hey Dog and WV girl, your chili recipe has been posted on the Recipe forum. You have to make it and just play with the spices until it suits your taste.

I saw it Lucy. Thank you. I have it written down. It is very similar to one my aunt Margret had in Princeton, except she didn't use the hot stuff in hers. I bet that might actually make it better.

There is not a time that I go to Walmart that I don't "see" the Chatterbox sitting there. It had some really great food.They had a wonderful roast beef sandwich with gravy and mashed potatoes.

i know its been a long time since anyone posted on here but i was wondering if anyone got any pics of the school and also the chatter box. we lived in bigfour bottom. when we visit family in w.va we try and come by bigfour but its been a while. my dad went to that school and i would love to get a pic of it and chatter box. i went to school in the 70's with some lesters.it would be good to get in touch with people from bigfour or people who use to live there. oscar pace was a family member of mine. he walked on crutches alot of people knew him.the chatter box did have great hotdogs we loved them.
