Chesapeake Chicken and Ribs

Is C&R closed? I tried calling for delivery in Bethesda and it forwarded to the main restaurant which was disconnected. Did they go out of business? I thought they were very popular. Maybe they needed some help from Gordon Ramsey

    Noticed they were out of business about a week ago as I passed by. I ate there once - had a barbecue chicken sandwich and a side (slaw?). I remember I was really underwhelmed and the price seemed high for the quality and amount.

      I think it took down the original one on Kent Island. Noticed it looked close/empty when I drove by last week.

        One hates to see any business fail, and the folks there seemed nice enough, but I, for one, won't miss it. The chicken was bland and grossly overpriced. I hope this means more Bethesdans will check out the vastly superior Chicken on the Run, on St. Elmo.

          Closed or just closed for the season?

      2. Closed and gone. Never liked them long!

          Thanks. I didn't think they were that great but they did deliver, which was a boon with a new baby. Ended up getting bbq from Redland on Rockville Pike. Not Urban BBQ quality but the sides are better and the chicken is decent. Plus, open later.
