If you have ever been to Buckhannon, Elkins or Ashland, you may have noticed, or been fortunate enough to dine at, a CJ Maggies. As a Buckhannon native, I have patronized CJ’s many, many times. You can read our review on the Buckhannon location by clicking here.
I have it on good authority that CJ himself is considering another location for his culinary empire besides the soon-to-open Fairmont space. My tummy would be overjoyed if he would choose Teays Valley! After all there is a perfectly good building just sitting there beside the Hampton Inn at the Winfield/Teays Valley exit where Uno’s and then La Sha’s served up grub.
Don’t frown donwtowners…It would only be a half hour drive for you to snag some brick-oven pizza, a list of pasta dishes as long as your arm, huge salads and satisfying sammies.
One of the great things about this restaurant (dare I use the word?) “chain” is that CJ restores old storefronts in downtown areas to house his eateries. I realize the empty Uno’s building in Teays Valley doesn’t have that kind of history or charm, but maybe some of you can come up with other cool locations that fit better into his style.
If you would like to see CJ Maggie’s open their doors in the greater Kanawha Valley/Huntington area, send an email to the nice folks making the big decisions in Sunny Buck. Click here for their contact information.
