For those visiting Bridgeport who have already sampled the city’s fare or those who are residents of the city and beyond looking for a trip for a new culinary experience, here’s a recent edition of WBOY’s Restaurant Road Trip. This week, the restaurant in question is in a brand new location and is 32 miles north of Bridgeport.
Located off the Pierpont exit in Morgantown, Big Red’s Shanty is known for their generous portions and fresh ingredients with an Appalachian twist.
Previously located on Cheat Road, Big Red’s was forced to move to keep up with their booming business.
When ordering you’ll notice menu items named after Appalachain themes and local legends, like their hillbilly egg rolls and mothman meatball subs.
“We put the Appalachian mark on the hillbilly egg roll, the Appalachian dog, the little Appalachian, the county roads meatloaf, and the loaded mashed potatoes,” said Big Red’s owner, Chris Hewitt.
Their most popular item is the monster burger.
