Restaurant gems in a small town….

Traveling is fun when going to a big city and you know there are terrific restaurant…when you are traveling to a small mining town….one might be skeptical as to having a meal that isn’t fast food!

We ate amazing Angel Hair Crab Balls…Crab balls rolled in Angel Hair

I gave up and enjoyed all the flavors….so if you hit Bridgeport, WV….be sure to check out this Italian feast.

The service was attentive and very pleasant which made for an enjoyable dinner….if your in
