Driving from Pittsburgh to WV

Sorry, I don't have time to thoroughly search the board since I just booked a flight to PIT on Fri. morning. Will drive from there to Morgantown then Fairmont. Looking for an interesting stop on the way, not too far off the highway, and since I won't have eaten that morning, the stop should be closer to PIT. Not expensive, southern style if possible, maybe good hash browns, scrapple, something I can't get done well (or at all) in Boston. I see the towns of Canonsburg and Washington on the route, anything there? Thanks.

  1. Scrapple is Philly food, not Pittsburgh. You won't find it many places here. Most of the notable breakfast joints are in the close-in burbs, not out by the airport or Interstates. But Canonsburg does have a winner in Alice's Restaurant.

      Thanks for the one reply. I ended up at Eat n Park in Washington cuz I'd never heard of that chain and decided to give them a chance. They unfornately didn't have sausage and biscuits and their hash browns were very prefab, so I wiish I'd gone to Bob Evans instead (which I did hit on the way back). I did see a place while searching called Eat at Penny's which sounded promising.

        Next time do pamela's. Midwestern cuisine at its finest.

        Southern style doesn't exist west of the Appalachians -- at least not as a "cultural preference"

    2. Don't know where you're from, but there's a place called Biscuit World. First time I saw it, IO just howled. Then found out it was actually a fairly good-sized chain. Can't say they're great, but anywhere that thinks enough of itself to choose a name like that.... Anyway, there are some in that part of the world.

        I'm from Boston and heard about Biscuit World when I was in WV. Sounds like my kind of place but I doubt I'll be in the area again (or at least in the foreseeable future).

          Are you referring to Tudor's Biscuit World maybe? Love their fried apples on a biscuit.

        2. There is the Gab n Eat in Carnegie. Great sausage and home fries. Try the mixed grill. Get half an order unless really hungry.
