CH has changed - WHY?

Thank you. I was about to abandon this site.

CH has changed - WHY?

When I open a thread, I am seeing every post including ones I have already read. Obviously, that makes the whole process unwieldy and time-wasting. Is this just a momentary glitch?

Anything halfway decent really close to Skyline

Anyone Remember Red Barn (fast food chain)?

We had both Red Barn, Burger Chef, and Jack In The Box in the DC suburbs of MD.

Crab cakes near BWI

G & M gets bad-mouthed a lot, but I've never had a bad meal there. I usually get the seafood platter, and always have some leftovers for the next day.

Smashburger -taste!

Their burgers are okay, but their haystacks onions are the best onion ringy things ever.

Dim sum recently?

Wong Gee has dim sum? Is it cart service on weekends?

Frustrated in Rockville -- why can't I get a decent deli sandwich?

And don't forget: http://cornedbeefking.com/

My oldest friend who grew up working at Famous Deli in Langley Park says this is the best corned beef sandwich in town.

Heckman's on Cordell Ave. in Bethesda is serviceable.

Amsterdam Felafel - Clarendon

Thank you for your service.

Amsterdam Falafel Shop

I believe they have plans to expand to Bethesda and Silver Spring.

Best veggie burgers


Taco Fiesta

I can't remember a thread about this place:

I used to eat at the College Park location, and it was good. Anyone eat at the Baltimore location recently?

Phillips Seafood - Ocean City

"Stuck", eh? I'm not sure that even your dogs would want to eat at Phillips.

Red velvet cake at Costco?

Red Velvet cupcakes were underwhelming.

Phillips Seafood - Ocean City

After decades of bad reviews, I had heard that Phillips had improved in the last few years. Seeking a fried platter, my friend and I ventured into the uptown Phillips. Results were not good.

I ordered the fried platter, and my friend ordered the broiled stuffed flounder. While hers was at least passable, the only things decent on the fried platter were the crabcake and the baked potato. Shrimp were tasteless, fried fish mediocre, and fried oysters were just off-tasting. The meal ran ~$90 - complete waste of money.


Peter Chang opening restaurant in Rockville in early 2015

Good move now that P.F. Chang's is gone.

Mango's Grill - Laurel, MD

This has been a regular spot for me for the last eight years, and I drive fifteen miles to get there. My favorite dish is the seafood fajita's - shrimp, scallops, and a large lobster tail.Market priced - last night it was $24.95. Good chips & salsa, beans and pico de gallo. I also like their crab enchiladas. Great service, and the owner is usually there to say hi.

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2014

The red velvet cupcakes are featured in this month's coupon booklet, IIRC.

Summer seafood takeout from Bethesda eateries

Black's is great, but not inexpensive.

Shawafel -- Best Inexpensive Food in the Atlas District

I've only sampled their food at Nationals Park. Their falafel was inferior to Kosher Grill.

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - July 2014 [OLD]

Never ever send food back. You won't like the results.

Best BBQ in Baltimore - Help!

Pit beef is Baltimore BBQ.

Ocean City, MD?

Dim Sum

Had dim sum at Oriental East. Pretty good, but no better than Hollywood East. Factoring in the crowd, I'll stick with Hollywood East in the future.

KFC ~ Bon Chon Etc

Any reports on Mo Mo Chicken & Jazz?

best crab cakes in maryland - any suggestions?

Crisfield's is still terrific, but their crabcake has never been outstanding. For crabcake, Jerry's (Lanham or Bowie) is best. Clyde's is pretty good, as well.
