This Unassuming Restaurant In West Virginia Hasn’t Changed Much Since It Opened In The 60s

Many have heard the old saying, ‘Don’t fix something that isn’t broken.’ At this old fashioned restuarant in Fairmont, that’s been the mantra for nearly 80 years. With the exception of expanding a 1960s bar to a full restaurant menu, the 8th Street Confectionery has remained largely unchanged (in the best way possible) for decades.
