These 10 Restaurants Serve The Best Pepperoni Rolls In West Virginia

Pepperoni rolls are a West Virginia tradition. They started as a lunch option for coal miners of the north-central part of the state during the first half of the 20th century. They don’t need to be refrigerated for storage, so miners could easily pack them in their lunches. Italian immigrant Giuseppe “Joseph” Argiro, who is credited for inventing them, first sold them at the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont in 1927. These days, they can be easily made at home or picked up at several local gas stations. But if you really want the best pepperoni rolls in West Virginia, here are some great bakeries and restaurants to try.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

What foods is West Virginia known for?

Aside from pepperoni rolls, the Mountain State has several other foods it’s famous for. Ramps, also called ransom, is a type of wild leek that is usually cooked in bacon grease and served as a breakfast side dish. West Virginians love their hot dogs so much that they have their own version, the slaw dog. Just take a hot dog and add mustard, onions, chili (or sauce as it’s called here), and coleslaw and you’ve got yourself a slaw dog. The state is also known for black walnuts, molasses, and venison.
