Ritzy Lunch is a small lunch spot known for its hot dogs in Clarksburg.
The menu features pepperoni rolls, sandwiches and breakfast items, too.
I wanted to try their hot dogs, so I got one with chili, slaw, mustard and onions.
I gotta say, that's a pretty decent hot dog.
The slaw had bits of carrot so it gave a pop of color, and it was flavorful. Definitely solid.

Oliverio's is a hometown shop that sells a variety of goods: snacks, pepperoni rolls, Oliverio style peppers, etc.
D'Annunzio's is not a bread you can find everywhere, so it's excited to see it on shelves in this neck of the woods.
The peppers are the mainstay here. They were born from this shop into a full-blown business that can be found in most Italian kitchens in the state.
They come in all different styles and are the perfect complement to pastas, sandwiches, pepperoni rolls and more. Which is your favorite?

Fairmont is home to a lot of small, old-school restaurants that serve simple entrees and, of course, pepperoni rolls.
I'll admit, though, when I heard "confectionery" in the name, I was thinking I might be in for some sweets.
Rather, the space is filled with a long counter and a line of booths with patrons digging into piles of spaghetti and hoagies.
I saw "pepperoni buns" on the menu and knew I had to try it.
I got the sauce, peppers and cheese atop mine.
It may be heartburn city, but man was it good! It really takes a pepperoni roll to the next level. Mmmm.

Downtown Morgantown is home to a new restaurant named "Almost Heaven."
As soon as I heard the name, I knew I had to check it out.
It's in a large space on High Street that has seen a number of different restaurants and bars over the years.
We were seated in a little nook area, and it was neat to have a sort of private spot for our small group.
The menu said that the space is made from local materials, and they source local foods for the menu, too.
But, first, we had a drink, and I had to try this pawpaw inspired drink - coconut rum, midori, banana liqueur, OJ and sours mix.
It was tasty!
If you like bananas or pawpaws, it's a good one to try.
For my meal, I simply went for nachos (I'm on a kick lately!)
But take a look at this "hundred dollar burger." Whoa. Nachos with pulled pork, jalapenos, and cheese were fabulous, though!

Smokin' Jacks has taken over the former Schmitt's Saloon location.
Smokin' Jacks has been a Preston County staple for some time, and they've just recently begun moving into the Morgantown area - with sister restaurant Smokin' Jills and their initial location back in Sabraton.
The building here is nice - large, rustic and ample parking. It looks just like the previous restaurant.
Which made me hope the pepperoni rolls were the same, too, because I really liked them. And they're pretty close! They're fried with cheese and sauce. The ultimate guilty pleasure.
For my entree, I went with wings, which seems to be one of their specialties.
These boneless honey bbq wings were pretty tasty. What's your favorite item here?
