M*CARBO Brotherhood

Business Venture

The former owner went bankrupt, owing the landlord and myself a fair chunk of money. The deal was to leave the equipment and we would forgive the debt. I slid right into an established and running restaurant.
It got run down the past few years and no one wants to offer me any grace or credit because of address but the trust will come. Hoping this is the opportunity to have the chance to get serious about shooting


Any you guys pass through bridgeport/ clarksburg wv on 79 N, show a carbo something and you get a free hoagie

Best of luck, Brother. I grew up in the Philadelphia area, so I know what a hoagie is. However, I migrated south and west to Texas and then Arizona. It may seem strange, but people out in Arizona have never heard of a “hoagie.” Of course, it’s easily possible to get a “sub sandwich” out west, but the term “hoagie” is never used out west. I just find the difference in language interesting. I know what a hoagie is, but some people out west have never heard of that word.

Growing up in the Philadelphia area, I used to eat “grinders.” I know what a “grinder” is, just like I know what a “hoagie” is. However, I never hear those words way out here in Arizona. I guess that is what happens to a person who moves more than 2,000 miles from where they grew up.!

Good luck on your new business!

@Gilligan369 Had the Mrs. stop by today and pick up a couple of steak hoagies. DELISIOUS! The staff was real friendly. Can’t wait to try the other menu items. I highly recommend stopping by if you are traveling on I-79 thru north central WV.

My father grew up in Clarksburg. His father was a wildcatter. We’ve still got a little oil, gas, and coal property in both Lewis and Randolph Co. Was actually back there roughly 2013 on a frack job. Stayed in Elkins. Love that state.

We’ve managed to keep the restaurant open for just over a month and now id really like to make a push for the dinner fare. Ive already switched us from frozen 6oz food service ribeyes to cutting our own from a fresh 10# slab and using the same local butcher for 10oz strips.


My question is what would you be interested in buying for a 12-16 dollar dinner from a place called ‘Cookhouse’. I’m already serving bison burger as well, patties and using it for stuffing and soups. Need the steaks to go so i can start ordering up, better meats including game

Since you ask … what would you suggest? That question has made my tongue dance more than once. My point is: I’m interested in anything you can do very well. If grandma didn’t learn you how to make a Rue - don’t serve me anything you called Gumbo.

Ooh and I’m still searching for my second serving of Ostrich. I had it at the suggestion of a very fancy waiter. I was very surprised to get a piece of red meat and even more surprised by the sensational party it hosted for my tasters.

@Gilligan369 hmmmm …. a place called the Cookhouse makes me think of old school traditional meals like Grandma used to make. Pot roast, real mashed potato’s, meatloaf, chicken fried steak, garden fresh veggies, southern pan fried chicken, and even lasagna or home style mac and cheese and of course some awesome soups - a creative soup artist/chef can be a real asset to a kitchen. Some game sounds great too - @Dred I’ve had ostrich before DAMN good eatin! Plus some killer homemade pies, cobblers and deserts and good coffee. Dangit - I’m hungry now!
