As I was driving around B'more the other day, the question occured to me--what would Chowhounds say is the best diner in the Baltimore area? Any thoughts?

  1. That one is tough. Baltimore is a great town for diners and other greasy spoons.

    One of the best would have to be Sip and Bite on Boston Street. And I am not sure if others would even classify it as such, but Jimmy's is at the top of the list as well.

      State Diner, 2821 Wilkens Ave. You know what to do.

        I've got a soft spot for the Double-T on Route 40 in Catonsville, as that's the one I went growing up. And it's still quite good. Like a 20-page menu. Now, I like Pete's Grille on Greenmount in Waverly, 'cause it's right near the house and quite good. Great blueberry pancakes and hamburgers (though not together). But it's not open for dinner. Boo! So, I usually end up having to drive to, say, Valentino's on Harford Road in Hamilton or the Sip n' Bite on Boston Street in Canton.

          I second the Jimmy's vote.

          Also, although it's too upscale and sparkly to qualify as the traditional greasy spoon diner, I've had a couple good breakfasts at Nautalis Diner in Timmonium. They've got a pretty huge menu selection.

        3. Alot of people swear by Pete's Grille on Greenmount, and I like it, but when I worked over that way, I liked the New Wyman Park Diner (which is only open for lunch) over on 25th.

          1. I'd have to put in a vote for Tamber's Nifty-Fifth Diner (33rd & St. Paul). Excellent food; anyplace where you can order both indian and diner food has to be great. Not open late enough, and the indian isn't up to some of the neighborhood standards, though (it's right down the street from the ambassador). However, it's definitely worth a trip. Or three.
