Ritzy Lunch, Clarksburg, WV

Ritzy Lunch, Clarksburg, WV

Ritzy Lunch, 456 West Pike Street, Clarksburg, West Virginia. From the Ritzy Lunch website:

The Ritzy Lunch was opened in 1933 by Joseph Selario and Mary Biafora Selario at its present location and has remained a family-run business for over 77 years. Joseph Selario emigrated from St. John’s of Florenza, Italy in 1911 to Clarksburg, WV when he was five years old. Joseph worked for both the Coca-Cola Company and the Budweiser Company as a young man before deciding to open the restaurant with his wife. Of course, with their natural cooking skills, how could they go wrong?

When first opening in 1933, the Ritzy Lunch had a full lunch, breakfast, and dinner menu catering largely to an evening crowd that would come to downtown Clarksburg to watch movies at the Robinson Grand Theatre two doors down. In 1952, patrons could dine on a steak dinner at the Ritzy for just eighty cents or a spaghetti dinner with salad for sixty-five cents. The cost to see a movie at the Robinson Grand Theatre in the late 1950’s was eight Pepsi bottle caps and ten cents!

When Joseph and Mary’s son, John, was in high school he spent his lunch hours and evening hours working at the restaurant. Every day after school, he would pack the steak in coolers for the next day. John was given a key to the Ritzy when he was 10 years of age, which he still carries today.

In 1970, John Selario and his wife Patti took over the restaurant. After having two sons, Dax and Antonio, they decided to cut back the restaurant hours to serve only breakfast and lunch. Dax and Antonio have many memories of visiting their grandfather and father at the restaurant growing up. Antonio recalls riding to the Ritzy after school on the bus and he and his brother running back and forth along the bar spinning the tops of the barstools as fast as they would go. Of course, that usually prompted his grandfather to say “sit down in a booth, stay there, and don’t touch anything!”

In 2000, John started the weekly bike night now known as “Hot Dog John’s Bike Night". Weather permitting, every Thursday evening during the spring and summer the Ritzy stays open until 9:00 PM and motorcyclists from near and far travel to Clarksburg for hot dogs, cold beer, and time with friends. Most recently, the popular game of corn hole has been added, and patrons enjoy playing on one of the three corn hole boards in the parking lot across the street. Motorcyclists have traveled as far away as California to Hot Dog Johns Bike Night to enjoy a famous hotdog and a cold beer.

The employees at the Ritzy Lunch are considered a large part of the Ritzy family and are one of the many reasons you can always count on great food! They have over 92 years of combined experience working at Ritzy Lunch. Phyllis Wanstreet has been there since 1974, Cindy Jenkins since 1976, and Mike “Skinny” Sandy since 1988. You can count on them for great food and service … they don’t even need to write your order down!

In keeping the family tradition, Antonio Selario became the owner of the Ritzy in 2007. Of course, John is still a large presence at the Ritzy and is there most every day. If you see him, don’t try to pay with a credit card! The Ritzy lunch is a cash only restaurant and does not accept credit cards or checks. Although some things have changed over the years, most things remain the same as they did when the Ritzy Lunch first opened. You can still sit at the counter and watch food being prepared from recipes handed down from generation to generation.
