I stumbled across Julio's when I went looking for Tomaro's in Clarksburg, WV. Michael has a brief comment about Julio's embedded in his review of Tomaro's but it really doesn't do Julio's justice. I'm not sure Julio's is exactly what Roadfooders are looking for, but it is one excellent restaurant. The menu during the evening is very upscale, but the the value is extraordinary. There is a sandwich and pasta menu during the day that you can ask for at night, but go for one of the nightly specials. This is a great place with great food. The appetizers are all freshly made with local products and the soup is to die for on a chilly night. There are a number of fish and meat specials that change nightly. Julio's is a little out of the way, but if you're traveling through the Mountain State on Route 79, get off on Route 50 and go into Clarksburg - it may take you a minute or two to find the restaurant but you'll be glad you did.

We tore open this pepperoni roll to show how the twigs of meat are enclosed in the bread and how, as it bakes, oil from the pepperoni seeps out and into the soft fibers of bread all around.

We had no cutting board and no knife, and nothing to sandwich between slices, so we simply gnawed on this hard-crusted loaf as we drove around exploring Clarksburg. It is everything a great Italian bread should be, and it is available with different degrees of hard crust, from barely brittle to wickedly crunchy.

The pepperoni roll is the unofficial state snack of West Virginia. Here is a trio of Tomaro's mini rolls, each a 2-3 bite affair.

Tomaro's motto is no joke. Lack of preservatives insures that by the next day, one of these great loaves is good only for croutons, pain purdu, or bread pudding.

The retail area inside Tomaro's is quite small, so small that it is not uncommon to find a line of customers outside the door waiting to get in and buy their baked goods. Tomaro's has been an Elk Point neighborhood bakery since 1914.
