Not eating out or just not posting?

Yes, it is tiresome to hear that there are no good bagels, pizza, barbecue, et al, in DC.

The harsh winter weather may be a reason for lack of participation.

Thai Taste by Kob, Wheaton

Ate there last night. Good value on the dinner deal. Salad, soup, two spring rolls, entree, and soda for $10.99. My entree was Duck Kaprow. Nothing was outstanding, and certainly not better than Nava in its heyday, but quite serviceable, nonetheless. Good service, and nice people.

Neopolitan Pizza in and around DC

Mia's is good but very pricey. Da Marco's is a better value. Oh, and Haven's pretty good.

Bethesda takeout - best seafood stew and best fried seafood

Cameron's (several locations) is carry-out only. Seafood In The Buff is in Glenmont, not as good as Cameron's.

What would you say is your favorite Pizza chain?

I like Ledo's and think the Wheaton branch is the best.

Season"s 52 has anyone been there?

I've eaten at the Tyson's Corner branch twice, and enjoyed it both times. Food was better than average, and service was outstanding.

Random Rockville eats (mostly Chinese) - 12/13

I love Shanghai Taste, and wanted to mention that their prices are probably the lowest of any on your list. You can also order small or large on many of their dishes.

For chain donuts, Shopper's Food Warehouse are good and cheap.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit

Just visited the Frederick, MD branch, and what a bargain. Friday special: half-pound pulled pork, two sides, a roll, and a large drink for $7.99. The pork was good, the onion rings were very good, and the beans were average. I'll be back.

Looking for "Nutrageous" snack size candy bars in NoVa….

I'm thinking the 1.92 oz size is full-size. I just bought some from this eBay seller: http://www.ebay.com/itm/REESES-NUTRAG...

Looking for "Nutrageous" snack size candy bars in NoVa….

Nutrageous is hard to find in it's full-size version. I usually buy them on eBay. I doubt they even make a fun-size or miniature version.
