My neverending quest to try all the restaurants on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list has taken me to Tunnelton. Despite the fact that Preston County borders Monongalia County, this restaurant was quite a bit more out of the way than I anticipated.
Company's Comin' is old-fashioned country food. They serve breakfast all day and buckwheat cakes yearround. They're open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday and closed Monday and Tuesday. Also, they are cash only.
After seeing the entire dining space taken up, we made our way to a long bar area and made ourselves comfortable. I wasn't totally sure if we were allowed to do that since no one acknowledged us for a bit, but finally, we were brought drinks. And a booth opened up so we slid on over there.
The menu is small. Breakfast has eggs, buckwheat cakes, bacon, sausage, etc. For lunch, a chicken sandwich, hotdog, wings are the main options. I went for a chicken sandwich with a side of onion rings. And you know what? It was actually really tasty. The chicken was really crisp, the bun was buttered and grilled, and the veggies were fresh.
Afterward, I ordered an apple dumpling. YUM. You wanna talk about comfort food - a hot from the oven apple dumpling topped with vanilla ice cream hits the spot.
There's nothing outstanding about this restaurant, but it's comfortable and familiar. If you're in the area, stop in.
