Where to go in the Reisterstown area?

Any good advice would be so greatly appreciated. I don't care what type of restaurant it is or what they serve. Just has to be with in a 20-30 min. drive from Reisterstown. I've tried Harryman house and did not like it for many reasons. Anyone tried Michos?
Please help. We are a family of 5 with 3 little ones (all very well behaved)

  1. Mr Chelsea's BBQ is very good, on Reisterstown near Painters Mill. Very casual so should be good for kids. Excellent pulled pork and pretty good brisket. Love the beans. Haven't had the ribs yet but they look very good.



    1. Try TONINI'S its about a mile or two above the Harryman House
      right at the split for #140 and #30(across from the Royal Farms)..casual Italian with great food....
      Micho's is upscal white tablecloth and my one experience was so so!!!(both places run by the same folks)

      1. I know there must be folks in my area that are logging on to chowhound. I'm tired of "family restaurants" that serve burgers (I do love burgers) and brown food.

        1. Perhaps you can be more specific as to what you're looking for. Tonini's has gotten some good reviews, and you didn't say you didn't want burgers. Not sure what brown food is.

          Bateman's has a varied menu and is relatively kid friendly.

          Que Rico has pretty good rotisserie (sp?) chicken.

          Mark's Deli, near Tonini's, was good in the past, but I've not been since the old owner died.


          1. Try Mari Luna Mexican place south of 695 about 2 miles on Reisterstown Road. Not exactly in Reisterstown, but close- and excellent, but popular. Also, in the same area is decent Chinese at Mr Chan's.
