Tony’s Lunch

Hamburgers | Hot Dog
One of the best

Tony’s is a coal country legend, open from 7:30pm until about 2am and serving an outrageous burger called The Screamer: a huge hunk of fresh ground beef topped with a dark chili sauce, preferably “SOS” (sauce on both sides), quick cheese (un-melted) and — are you ready? — Marshmallow Fluff. Devotees contend that the Fluff and chili sauce make a great burger dressing.

Tony’s Lunch, Chocolate Milk
Chocolate Milk
The chocolate milk is the beverage of choice, to help soothe the heat from the hot sauce.
Tony’s Lunch, French Fries
French Fries
The French fries are a popular side, but were too airy for me.
