The Szechuan Inn (new owners)

si-1

  Interested in how much the new owners had done to change the Szechuan Inn, I stopped in for a lunch meeting. The tranformation was amazing. If you were blindfolded and went in you would never realize this was the same place. Everything brand new including fish tanks and sushi bars. It is all much more open and inviting. We ...

Mi Pueblo

mp-1

  I was stuck in Glen Burnie while my car was being worked on so I walked to the bank then to Mi Pueblo for a lunch fiesta. I love the one in SP but had never been to the original. I thought it was great and liked it even better than the one in SP. Same food, same price ... Read More »

Brian Boru

boru-1

  I had been wanting to stop by and review Boru’s for awhile but had not had the chance. It is on Rt. 2 but doesn’t really stand out as you pass by. The last time I went there I remember it having a strange layout and very closed off which made it loud. I was pleasantly surprised to see ... Read More »

The Big Owl

bigowl-4

  It is a rare treat when I am able to get to the Eastern Shore for a day out. A beautiful 78 degree day on the deck overlooking the Narrows is just what I needed. We drove over to The Big Owl around 2:45 and it was already packed with people sitting back and enjoying the ambiance. They had ... Read More »

Lures

lures-1

  I never had any reason to go to Crownsville until recently which is why I had only been to Lures once before. I passed by it around lunch time and made a U turn to grab a sammie. It seemed very busy for lunch as the parking lot was pretty full. In the few times I have driven by ... Read More »

Nando’s Peri-Peri

nando-1

  I had never heard of Nando’s before I saw them on Groupon but I was going to Waugh Chapel anyway so I took a shot. Arriving right around 6pm we missed the dinner rush by about 15 minutes. You go in and are seated with menus, when you are ready you go to one of the registers and give ... Read More »

Houlihan’s

houli-1

  I was in the Waugh Chapel Shopping Center and was going to hit up Red Robin for lunch. Yuuuummmmm. At the last minute I changed my mind and went to Houlihan’s and had mixed feelings about the whole thing. It started out good enough, a little before 1 pm and only about 10 customers which usually means fantastic service. ... Read More »

Garrys Grill

garys-1

  Sunday morning breakfast is the best. I had a Groupon for Garry’s Grill so that pretty much made my decision on where to go, however smart people would read the coupon before ordering. It was only good for dinner but at that point I was stuck so I decided just to suck it up and enjoy it. We arrived ... Read More »

Mi Pueblo II

pueblo-1

  There are no words to decribe how excited I was to have this place open after the incredible feedback I had gotten from the Glen Burnie location. After much anticipation and continued delays on the opening it was finally here. I had the genuis idea to go to a new restaurant on a Friday night. When I arrived there ... Read More »

Honey Bee Diner

honeybee-1

  25 years ago I was a night owl and there was nowhere to eat late at night except for Denny’s and Honey Bee unless I stayed awake until 5am when The Breakfast Shoppe opened. I usually ended up at the Honey Bee because of the food and service around 2 or 3am. I have only been there a handful ... Read More »

Johnny’s Family restaurant

johnny3

&bnsp; When you head down mountain road in Pasadena it is one business after the other. Everything from car dealerships to ice cream parlors, restaurants and bars. A nice little restaurant on the corners called Johnny’s Family restaurant. When You enter it has the feel of a restaurant on a long stretch of highway with nothing around. Everyone knows everyone ...

Boston Market

boston2

&bnsp; They have a combo that is almost impossible to say no to when they ask ” would you like the ribs and chicken cobo with two sides?” Ummm yeah! So I did with macaroni and cheese and creamed spinach as my sides. I also got cornbread which I honestly think gets thrown away 75% of the time. They have ... Read More »

Chris’ Restaurant

chris1

  Exceeded my expectations! I went in for an early lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The reason I had never been here is because I was not impressed with Diego’s that was in it’s place years ago.There were only two other customers when we arrived and one of them came over and started a conversation because my food looked so ... Read More »

Hella’s

hellas2

  I went to lunch to check out the crabcakes and was not disappointed. Two giant crabcakes with hardly any filler. These are some of the best in the area similar to Romano’s, Timbuktu, and G&M. This was enough for me and my son to split and we were both full and satisfied. That is until it was time to ... Read More »

The Big Pig- CLOSED

pig1

  Dropped by for a quick lunch around noon out of curiosity. The parking lot was empty (luckily because there is hardly any parking.) I was the only customer and there was one guy working behind the counter. He was friendly enough but I could tell he did not want to be there. I ordered the beef brisket, cole slaw, ... Read More »

Outback Steakhouse

outback2

  I would love to see Outback move into the SP area (Replace Bateman’s) but for now I will have to settle for a short trip to Glen Burnie or Annapolis. I had not been to Outback Annapolis in a few years and they must have new management because someone grew a brain. They have added tables outside and got ... Read More »

Capri Pizza

cappizza1

  At one time or another you will find yourself on hospital drive and hungry. Capri Pizza is a small, downright out of the Bronx Italian eatery complete with the loud,to the point owner (which I like by the way.) She came to each table and asked everyone there ( in her New Yawk accent) what she could do to ... Read More »

4 Seasons Grille

4seasgrill

  I had seen this restaurant from the outside but had not heard a lot about it so I never really had any interest in it until I was given a gift certificate and even then it took us months to get there. It was surprisingly nice inside, not uncomfortably nice but clean and spacious with decent decor. The kids ... Read More »

Zandi’s Grill

zandis-1

  Tucked away in the back of a small business building on Veterans Highway is the hidden gem “Zandi’s Grill”. This small but comfortable restaurant had a complete makeover by the Food Network’s “Restaurant impossible”. The episode can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFvj2kSm_bE I had been there before the change and what a difference! I arrived around 11:45am so I missed ... Read More »

Grump’s Cafe

grumps1

  A little drive to Bay Ridge is worth it for a very different small town,laid bay cafe. It has signs in the bathroom such as “Pay Toilet, Drop dime in toilet and flush.” The waitresses also use their pajamas as their uniforms. They offer a full bar and serve breakfast menu all day. The first time I went in ... Read More »

Sunset Restaurant

sunset3

  Due to an online poll of looking for the ultimate local cream of crab soup I was led to Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie which I had been to many times but not in a few years due to an over cooked filet mignon I had gotten the last time. I had guessed that staff or management changed and ... Read More »

Pat’s Select Pizza Grill

pats1

  Grabbing a coupon from the paper we went to grab a bite from a new pizza place I had not heard much about. Pat’s Select Pizza is on Ritchie Highway but you can also get in from the back from Jumpers so the location is great,however the parking lot was packed. We walked in and there were three girls ...

Mother’s Peninsula Grill

mothers2

  After asking on this page about a good place for breakfast in Arnold and driving around around a half hour with no luck and breakfast hours gone I ended up at Mother’s right at 11am. I did get a lot of feedback for breakfast and although I love The Breakfast Shoppe and Garry’s Grill, I was specifically looking for ... Read More »

Mexican Cafe

mexcafe2

  Located across from the Navy stadium, Mexican Cafe replaces Northwoods, one of my favorite local restaurants. With another great Groupon deal I had in my repertoire we headed back to Annapolis for a taste of Mexican delight. If you are on Groupon you cannot beat the deal. For $20 you get $40 worth of food. We arrived around 7pm ... Read More »

McDonald’s

mcds3

  I very rarely go to McDonalds but had a weird craving for a filet o fish so I stopped by the McDonalds I had been going to since they opened in 1976. It was very disappointing to see a local business operating this way even if it is a fast food place. We went in around 11:30 and there ... Read More »

Noodles & Company

noodco1

  After hearing mixed opinions on Noodles I was a little reluctant to try it out so soon after opening but having been to a few other locations I figured how bad could it be? Being a franchise they all have the same menu, however, the seating area in SP was the smallest of the locations I have visited. We ... Read More »

Rams Head Roadhouse

RHRH-Menu-Cover-2012

  Riding down Generals Highway with my boss and decided to buy him lunch since he buys for me almost every day. We almost passed right by but at the last second told him to turn in. I had only been here once before a long time ago and remember having a pretty decent cheesesteak. A modest lunch crowd when ... Read More »

The Grill at Quarterfield Station

grill1

  In 2002 Severna Park resident Bill Chalmers took his 20+ years of experience in the restaurant industry as the regional manager at The Chart House to open his own place. I had heard people mention “The Grill” from time to time but never made it there until today. I rarely eat breakfast during the week so this was a ... Read More »

The Point Crabhouse and Grill

point1

  What a perfect day for lunch outside on the water! I had been to Magothy seafood many times before just because I love the water but was never impressed with the service or the food. What an upgrade! The place has been fixed up,tables added,new deck on the outside,better service,better food and a nice experience. Arrived at 11:30ish and ... Read More »

Atlanta Bread

atbread1

  Grabbed a afternoon lunch at Atlanta Bread which was here for a few years gone for a few months, then returned.┬áToday was a perfect day for an outdoor lunch which is one reason why I chose Atlanta Bread. Another is that I had only been here a couple times before. I was surprised to see there was no line, ... Read More »

Jeno’s Steaks

jenos1

  Cheesesteaks are my all time favorite lunch sandwich and Jenos has been a favorite of mine since the first time I went. The walls are plastered with local sports pictures and memorabilia and the staff is always friendly. I see the same people there over the years and Rudy (found his name out today) always makes time to strike ... Read More »

Safeway at Benfield Deli

safewaydeli

  I have grabbed a sandwich from this deli 8-10 times and although I have never received my food in under 3 minutes (which supposedly makes it free) it was never as bad as this time. It took me 15 minutes to get my sandwich and there was no one else in line. Unfortunately there was one elderly lady working ... Read More »

Romilo’s

romilos1

  I have visited Romilo’s several times over the years and have never had a problem with the food but never had anything so good I remembered it and wanted to return. Nothing was different this time. Seemed very average. I waited about 10 minutes for someone to take our order I ordered the drinks and meal at the same ... Read More »

Squisito

sqiz1

  We all know Squisitos has phenomenal pizza but I had a different mission today. I had a cheese steak craving, so taking the advice of a friend I tried Squisitos in Odenton. The building had been redone so it looks a lot nicer then it used to. The service was okay and the cheese steak was very good (not ... Read More »
