Shepherdstown Edition: Betty's Restaurant

Betty’s Restaurant

Betty's Restaurant is known for its sausage gravy.

Betty’s Restaurant

This Shepherdstown breakfast restaurant is cash only, which has prohibited me in the past from checking it out. Until now.

Something about this homestyle meal just makes it so comforting.

Inwood Edition: Jules of Inwood

Jules frozen custard

Imagine this: A carnival food truck. Minus the carnival.

That's kind of what Jules is like. It's flashy and lit up, but it's all the goodness of carnival indulgence food.

So, of course I had to go with a s'mores option.

Morgantown Edition: Panda Express

Panda Express

Candace, are you really going to review a Panda Express?

Panda Express

No, no I won't. BUT, it is fun when a new restaurant comes to town - and since there aren't many Panda Express locations in West Virginia, it's good to know there is one here!

Panda Express

I got the sweetfire chicken, honey walnut shrimp and crab rangoons. Mmm Chinese comfort food.
