The Oldest Fast Food Restaurant In West Virginia Is Wheeling’s Coleman’s Fish Market And It’s Delicious
What do you think the oldest fast food chain in the world is? According to our research, it’s A&W, which opened the doors of its first restaurant in 1919. That’s an old restaurant chain, but guess what? There’s a local West Virginia fast food-ish restaurant that’s even older – Coleman’s Fish Market in Wheeling.
There's some fun stuff tucked away in the historic Centre Market in Wheeling, West Virginia.
One of them is an especially unique, interesting, famous shop: the state's oldest fast food restaurant! That is, if a delicious fish sandwich qualifies as fast food.
It certainly qualified as fast food back in the day when Coleman's Fish Market first opened, more than one hundred years ago!
That's right, Coleman's Fish Market has been serving up extraordinary fish sandwiches since all the way back in 1914.
And what a fish sandwich it is. It's kept Coleman's Fish Market in business and going strong for over a century now, so you know it's got to be good. In fact, it's not just good; by now, as you might expect, the Coleman's fish sandwich is actually pretty famous in its own right.
As the name hints, Coleman's Fish Market sells more than just sandwiches with a side of fries, although that's their most popular choice.
This fish shop also sells other types of fresh seafood, in both cooked and raw form.
