Looking for good chow stop along I95 on my way to DC
My fiancee and I are traveling from North Jersey to DC next Friday evening and I'm looking for a good stop along the way for dinner. Looking for something moderately-priced and local.
I've been reading good things about Frank's Diner in Jessup, MD. Any thoughts on Frank's? Any other recommendations?
both the Canton & Fells Point neighborhoods in Baltimore are right off of exit 57 (canton is closer, fells is under 10 min). this board is full of suggestions for those neighborhoods. a few suggestions:
canton: mama's on the half shell
fell's point: mezze (tapas), red star or koopers
SAMOS is on Oldham Street in Baltimore about three minutes off of I-95
(Just a mile or so before the Fort McHenry Tunnel) From I-95 south take the exit for Odonnell Street (west towards Canton) go past Ponca Street (1st light) over thr railroad tracks and make a lefyton Oldham Street. SAMOS is about 5 blocks on the left on the corner. Great Greek food and if the are crowded there are several other Greek Restaurants within a block or two , Ikaros, Acropolis, Zorbas all on Eastern Ave...
Two other thoughts for the Jessup area if you take the east exit onto Rte 175 from I-95 and go a block to Rte 1. Try either El Patio Restaurant for empanadas and Argentine food (a block south on Rte 1 next to the El Patio market) or the Fortune Star Buffet for Chinese (just across Rte 1 in the shopping center on the right).
If you can afford a few more minutes and want a quick meal in Howard County, I would also suggest either Indian vegetarian food at Mango Grove (which is off Rte 175 a few minutes west of I-95) or Vietnamese at An Loi (which a few turns off Rte 32 west of I-95)
You'll find Chowhound posts on all these places. Or some links --
