Piro Pizzeria will be coming soon to the Shops at Kanawha, formerly known as the Kanawha Mall.
Teays Valley will soon be home to another Mexican eatery, El Rancho Grande. They will be occupying the former Schlotzsky’s space near the Kroger at the Teays Valley/Winfield exit.
It is lucky for them that the Schlotzsky’s sign just so happens to be in the colors of the Mexican flag.
A google search turned up another El Rancho Grande in Beckley. I wonder if there is a connection other than a common name?
Tomahawk’s Tuesday Special
Recently, Ron and I enjoyed an afternoon on the deck at Tomahawk’s in South Charleston amid the boaters that docked for a bite and the bikers that rode in for a rest.
You may want to consider giving them a try on a Tuesday evening when they are featuring a 16″ cheese pizza for only $5. We really enjoyed the veggie pizza on our visit. Additional toppings will set you back a mere $0.50 each. We recommend it!
Of course there are other specials during the week and you can see them all on the Tomahawk’s website.
We reviewed Tomahawk’s a while back, but they are under new management these days. We noticed a marked improvement in the quality of the food we ordered and a much great variety on the menu. We will be back for a re-review soon. On a sunny day, of course.
Get a Pitcher at La Roca
La Roca, at Nitro Marketplace near the Wal Mart off the Cross Lanes exit, offers pitchers of draft beer for $6.99. The draft Michelob Ultra was the perfect drink to wash down the yummy shrimp chimichangas I ordered for dinner.
With the upscale furnishings, this is the “fanciest” Mexican joint I have visited around these parts. It is a clean, large, well-appointed comfortable restaurant and was very busy on Friday night. Oh, and they have outdoor seating, which is why we chose it.

If You Happen to Be in Buckhannon…
Stop in at Allburgher’s on Main Street. Intending to pop in only for a couple cold drinks during Strawberry Festival Week recently, the half-off Pub Favorites during Happy Hour were too tempting to pass up.
I ordered the fish & chips basket and, as you can see from my photo, it was a load of food for only four bucks – which means the regular price is still a reasonable $8. I received a piece of fried fish as big as the one on the Anchor’s King Fish sandwich and a huge pile of HOMEMADE shoestring fries. The only bad part of my meal was trying to keep six other hands out of those delicious fries.
I will definitely go back to Allburgher’s during one my future trips to Sunny Buck.
And Just To Prove I Eat Too Much Mexican Food
Check out this picture of the shrimp enchiladas at East Tenampa in Milton.
This meal consists of FOUR shrimp enchiladas with that yummy cheese sauce. These babies aren’t made on the cheap, either. They are full of shrimp and only shrimp – no filler material. To make them extra special delicious, I ordered them with tomatillo sauce in addition to the cheese. They were spicy, shrimpy and awesome.
