I still think the original Pechins near the Fayette County Fairgrounds should be remembered. As a carny who traveled all around the state in the 80’s, it was still our favorite stop when we resupplied for all our spots in western PA and WV.

It burned down years ago. Took a few friends from in the city there when they came to visit me in C’ville. Fed all 4 of us for under $20 in the early 80s.

Interesting. I guess I never knew the OG pechin’s, only the second one. Thanks for the info.

We never went to the newer one often but they had good cakes in my opinion. But the original was a landmark id give it that

Grew up in C’Ville and Pechins was an experience you just had to experience.
