I can think of a few puddles in and around Corbin/ Harlan that serve them.  If you don't know what a puddle is y o u have never been to this part of Kan Tuck Eee.

Are you talking about Duck Puddle in Greenup County?

Hmmmm NO, A puddle is a place in a DRY county (like) Harlan  Co. Corbin area where you can get a real drink.

Technically, yes
Some of the places are at the end of a dock sitting ove r the w ater, so technically not land based therefore not on the land in a DRY county.  This area of Kan Tuck Eee is VERY unique.  There is a reason Harlan county is called Bloody Harlan.
 
If anyone watched the TV Show JUSTIFIED it was based in and around Harlan county.  Raylan Givens was from there.

Born and raised in Southeastern Kentucky. I've never heard the term puddle but I've never watched Justified. Other than filming a few spots around Eastern Kentucky for background color the show was never actually filmed in the state. Otherwise I would have been interested.
You can drink in dry counties in Kentucky at all sorts of places: Moose Lodges, VFW Halls, Amvets etc. Of course there are plenty bootleggers where you can buy whatever you need but those are vanishing as the Eastern part of the state slowly smartens up as to revenue. Corbin is now dripping with municipal dollars after going wet.
 
Back to the original topic. The best chili buns I've ever eaten from a public source are available at the Shopping Cart in Lily, Kentucky. I suspect that is due to their grinding their own beef in-house. The Rootbeer Stand in Corbin puts out a good chili bun too. Their beef gets brought in from Kroger multiple times per day. They also brew rootbeer in house in an ancient contraption that looks like it came over on the Ark.

So it's a Sloppy Joe on a Hot Dog Bun?

Whatever it is it's making me hungry. I think I'll heat up some Tony Packo's chili and put it in a hot dog bun. It is cheating if I put a hot dog in with it?

I know it was first filmed two seasons just outside pittsburgh, the final seasons were filmed in CA.
I can not think of the roadhouse's name. There in Evert but the dock is about 150' long and the roadhouse sits on stilts in the water.  There are still plenty of hollow stumps around if you know what your looking for.  The kantuckee electric spring water is smooth as silk, and sweet as corn.

A cincy style coney without the hotdog, sloppy joe is thicker and meatier

Just a hop and a skip from eastern Kentucky, I had a chili bun for the first time yesterday.  I ordered this at the Hob-Nob Drive-In, Gate City VA, which opened in 1953 and is still in family hands.  It comes with mustard, mayo, onions, and chili, and it was delicious.

Mayo on a chili bun. Fiendish sounding but I'll try it. Good report.

Established in 1953, the Frosty-Ette puts out a good chili bun and an even better hamburger.

Sorry, but that doesn't even look vaguely good.  But, that's just my opinion.

It may not look good but I implore you to try one, just once, pair with a bag of Mike Sells potato chips and a cold pop. You won't regret it.

It's good with a dog but even better without. Sans dog you can take down a few of them, with dog, your intake is limited.
