Tasty Tuesday: Lightburn's Family Diner

By  | 

JANE LEW, W.Va (WDTV) - If you like a place with good comfort food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and a place where you can hang out for a bit and bring your family, we've found that spot!

"If I have the stuff, I'll make it for you," said co-owner and chef Daniel Castro.

Castro has some of the best comfort food on the menu.

"Classic Philly Cheesesteak, stuffed french toast, this is just my take on it, classic fare chicken and waffles," Castro said, are some of the things on the menu.

"March 23rd will be 27 years I've been cooking."

Having worked at restaurants in Philadelphia and other cities, it was his wife who brought him to Jane Lew. Together only about a year and a half ago, they brought Lightburn's Family Diner to Lewis County.

"I'm not reinventing the wheel," Castro said. "I'm reinterpreting what I've learned and what I draw inspiration from."

They have classics like a BLT, but two of their specialty items are the omelets and the french toast.

"Every week I make it a point to make it different so this way it keeps it interesting."

Castro pushes the idea of fresh ingredients and nothing pre-made. Everything is made from scratch, and that includes the decor of the restaurant too.

"I like to cook from scratch. I think it's fresher, it's healthier, and it's better that way."
