Tasty Tuesday: 8th Street Confectionary

By  | 

FAIRMONT, W.Va (WDTV) - When you walk into 8th Street Confectionary, it's like taking a step back in time and feeling like you're in your neighbor's kitchen.

That's what you'll find at a local place in Fairmont that is a bit of a hidden secret tucked off Fairmont Avenue.

"We're working on 46 years," said owner Michael Riggi.

If you come in during lunch during the week, almost every seat at the counter or booth is full.

"All of the locals from bus drivers to lawyers, to doctors, to mechanics, to car salesmen, little bit of everything," Riggi said.

You'll feel like you're in your neighbor's kitchen. Their recipes are all homemade and that includes sauces, meatballs, and one of the most popular -- their sausage and potatoes. They have specials throughout the week like ribs and stuffed peppers.

"My grandparents had sausage recipes," Riggi said. "We grind our own pork, make our own sausage, we cut our own ribs, we cut our own meats -- fresh every day."

Their mission is to give you tastes and flavors that have a homemade feel and that are though to get anywhere else.

"We offer people what they would want to make at home but just don't have the time or they say it's not worth four hours to make meatloaf for two people," Riggi said.
