After shopping in nearby Calcutta, OH, my sister & I decided to have lunch at Connie’s, in the heart of Chester, WV. Located downtown along State Rte. 2, the eatery is owned by Bob & Connie Hissam, and is always busy at mealtime. Limited parking along the side of their building, but parking is free along Carolina Ave. & the side streets. Street-level entry. Country kitchen decor, with seating for about 75 at tables or booths. A nice variety on their menu, to please virtually any taste. Known for their breakfast buffet on the weekend. Catering service available. Meals are served on Fiestaware, manufactured at the local Home Laughlin factory in nearby Newell, WV. Cash or plastic accepted. Connie’s is a main draw for local folks who are bored with the fast food fare. (While we were there, members of Chester’s police force and clergy were having lunch.)
Although I’ve enjoyed items from their dinner menu in the past (excellent roast turkey dinner), my sister & I came for lunch at the noon hour — one of Connie’s busiest times. Although there were lots of customers (totalling about 40), there was plenty of wait staff to meet, greet & satisfy everyone.
I ordered their grilled hamburger with a side order of chilled, cinnamon applesauce, which was served first. Then came the fresh ground beef grilled patty (quarter-pound size) with lettuce & tomato on a toasted potato bun. The burger was juicy and tender — no prefab frozen stuff here. Serving of rippled potato chips included on the plate.
Sister ordered one of Connie’s Corner’s lunchtime features, the Connie club sandwich. This is a club sandwich on toasted white bread that’s sort of a combined grilled ham & melted cheese and crisp, fried lean bacon-lettuce-&-sliced tomato with a fried egg in the middle. Very delicious and satisfying. A serving of rippled chips included. With tip, lunch for the two of us totalled less than $12.00.
