HUNTINGTON - Whether you're looking for a quick lunch or a cool treat, there's a new restaurant to suit your needs in West Huntington. Huskey's Dairy Bar serves up all-beef hot dogs, hamburgers,and sandwiches alongside Hershey's Ice Cream.
The restaurant marks the second location for restaurateur Shi Quan Wang, who opened the original Huskey's in Charleston. The new Huskey's is located across the street from Heiner's Bakery Surplus Store in West Huntington and next to Dutch Miller Hyundai.
"My husband opened the first Huskey's in Charleston about eight years ago," manager Yan Chen said. "We moved here to Huntington to start the new one, and our family is taking care of the original. It took us about nine months to get everything ready. We had to redo the entire inside of the building including the kitchen. We also had to redo the electricity and replace the floor in the bathrooms."
The dairy bar opened Feb. 1 and features the same menu as its Charleston location.
If you're looking for lunch, the restaurant offers hot dogs topped with mustard, chili and onion for $1.99. For $2.29 you can get a English Dog served on a New England bun. Lunch offerings also include a Philly Cheesesteak ($4.59), Hot Bologna ($3.89), and Fried Fish ($3.59).
There are more than 20 different flavors of ice cream to choose from, including Birthday Cake, Salted Caramel, Bananas Foster and Mint Moose Tracks. Customers can enjoy their ice cream by the scoop ($1.99, $2.99, $3.99 for 1 to 3 scoops) or in a waffle cone ($2.59 for one scoop, $3.49 for two scoops). Milkshakes also are available ranging from a $2.99 12-oz small to a $4.99 24-oz large.
Huskey's offers a variety of custom sundaes for $4.99 including the Frozen Hot Chocolate with chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, hot fudge and marshmallows. Another option is the Caramel Peanut Delight featuring vanilla ice cream, caramel syrup, whipped cream and salted peanuts.
"I think all of the flavors sell pretty well at the Charleston location. Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are our most popular." Chen said. "Strawberry Cheesecake, Banana Pudding and Cappuccino Crunch are my favorite flavors."
