You’ve heard the term “go big or go home,” but you’ve probably not heard it in relation to the size of your food. The epic places below are the best to find big food in West Virginia. We’re talking big burgers, big burritos, and much more. Here are our favorites.
If you love steak, then you’ll love West Virginia Polo Club in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Known as a sports bar, this surprising place has amazing food. Hungry diners will enjoy fried pepperoni rolls, smoke gouda mac-n-cheese bites, delicious overstuffed sandwiches, and other better-than-standard bar food, but what sets WV Polo Club apart is the size of their burgers and steaks. Burger lovers can try their 20-ounce signature burger with double meat, double bacon, and double cheese, or for more hearty eaters, there is the two-pound “Big A** Steak” that’s cooked to order. Thursday is steak night when you get a great discount on your steak choice.
Located in Morgantown, West Virginia, this authentic California-style taqueria brings home great taste at reasonable prices. Open until 10 p.m. every night except on weekends when they’re open until 3 a.m., they specialize in huge, fat burritos. Hungry eaters can try eating the enormous 6.5-pound burrito, or choose their own fillings, toppings, and salsa. If burritos are not to your liking, they also have the best quesadillas and fish tacos that are very popular. Everything is made there and from fresh ingredients, and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Hillbilly Hotdogs in Lesage, West Virginia, is home to monster meals like the five-pound and 17-pound burgers they offer. The largest burger is made with 30 pounds of beef, bread, lettuce, pickles, onions, and plenty of cheese. If burgers aren’t your thing, but you still want a jumbo sandwich, they have a 15-inch, three-pound hot dog called the Homewrecker made with a one-pound beef wiener, jalapenos, sautéed peppers and onions, nacho cheese, habanero peppers, chili sauce, mustard, slaw, lettuce, tomato, and cheese on a large bun. The current record for eating this dog is two minutes and 34 seconds, although anything under 12 minutes is considered a win.
What could be better than pizza with all your favorite toppings and gooey melted cheese hot out of the oven? How about a giant pizza with all that?

The pizza is cut into 16 square slices, and is one of Napoli’s best-selling pizzas.
'Twas the Saturday before Christmas and all through the house; Not a creature was wanting to cook, not even the mouse; So they called up Napoli's, all waiting with glee; Watching down the road, for the yellow truck they will soon see; When the truck arrived, they ran to the door; As the Napoli's delivery driver approached, they let our a joyous roar; Before the driver could knock, Little Timmy ran out to greet; The family brought in their pizza, it was going to be quite a treat!; The family with joy, let out a whistle; As the driver flew back to his truck, like the down of a thistle; But I heard the Napoli's driver say as he drove out of sight - "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
