We have learned that Ellwood City has been home to hundreds of different businesses through the years but few have left an impression like Pe’Wee’s Lunch on Lawrence Avenue. The menu is hanging at the Ellwood City Historical Society above one of the unique spinning metal stools that lined the counter.
No matter what time of day or night you were hungry, Pe Wee’s was open. You walk in and can not help but notice the assorted variety of clientele sitting on the stools at the counter and you just look for an empty seat. If there were no empty seats, you just stood behind someone and the cook would take your order. Everyone had their favorites they would order; my personal order was usually three “yappers” with everything (mustard, onion, & chili) and a chili cheese hash brown. Wow, just saying that took me back in time. Not a lot needs to be said about Pe Wee’s Lunch as it seems that it is still one of the most memorable places Ellwood City has ever seen.
I am sure that you have a personal memory of Pe Wee’s that you would like to share. Please leave your story below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
