    Depends what you mean by "nice." If you're looking for a waiter, your choices are limited to Mamma Lucia, Cheeburger Cheeburger, and Tokyo Taipei.

    While you're nixing ML, I'd consider it the nicest in terms of classical appearance and formal service. CBCB is fun, but you're either in the mood for burgers, fries and rings or you're not. TT does both Japanese and Chinese, but neither cuisine would be a standout on its own.

    From a strictly chow perspective, you'll want to skip all three and head to Moby Dick for a kabob.

      Not in the Fallsgrove shopping ctr, but near: Nick's Chophouse, Thai Farm, Amada Amante in Traville, the French place (name escaping me now) in King Farm, etc. How close to Fallsgrove do you want to stay? Within 10 minutes drive are restaurants in Kentlands, the rest of Gaithersburg, the rest of Rockville.

        I "second" Nick's. It is not really a chophouse.
        It is light and airy and the service can be very nice.
        They have a Chef Special every night - the two I have had have been super. They also have wonderful fresh LOBSTER.

          Amada Amante is fantastic, and just a few blocks away from Falls Grove (closer than King Farm).
