Spaghetti Sauce from Jim’s Steaks and Spaghetti

Dave T.


Jim’s Steak and Spaghetti House in downtown Huntington WV is an institution if there ever was one. It’s been in business for 78 years. The current owners, the Tweel family has operated it since 1944
The Spaghetti sauce is the star of the menu. Slightly sweet, just a little heat on the back side, but actually just an good old fashion no frills sauce.
