Road Trip to the restaurant: Uncle Ronnie’s sandwich shop


FAIRMONT, WV — Ronnie Bosley is no stranger to the restaurant scene. He has been cooking for about 10 years and learned his skills from a chef at a local restaurant.

But, Bosley wanted to open his own place.

“I had been looking for a place for a while and was in a food truck last year. I really wanted a brick and mortar place,” Bosley said.

Bosley’s friend discovered that a building around downtown Fairmont was about to become vacant, and Bosley jumped at the chance.opening of Uncle Ronnie’s sandwich shop in January.

The shop sells exactly what’s in the namesandwiches.

However, the naming of each element is unique; some of the sandwiches are named after important people in Bosley’s life.

“You will see names on the sandwiches. These names are very special guys to me. They are like brothers. You can’t buy a friendship like that,” Bosley said. “These guys are great guys.”

So what are some of these sandwiches?

“Some of our most popular are our Willie, which is our Italian sub. We sell a lot of that. We have a white pizza grilled cheese that’s pretty unique, and we sell a lot of our Italian sausage sandwiches and our hoagies. Everything is fresh. Nothing lingers. Everything is made to order,” Bosley said.

Bosley said all of the sandwiches were a huge hit with customers stopping in to try them.

“I love looking out and seeing people leave…they just have this look of love on them, and you come back and ask them, you say, ‘how was everything?’, and they’re like, ‘fantastic, I’m see you again,” Bosley said.

The feeling of eating well is something Bosley can’t even put into words.

“It’s overwhelming at times, the feeling you get. It’s so awesome to know that you can put a smile on someone’s face and just make them…I don’t know, it’s the best thing that ever happened to them,” Bosley said.
