pups224, I have been checking back here since reading your original post hoping to grab some new ideas for myself. Red Door sounds good but I wanted to be sure you saw this review by Ike who is usually the Salisbury Chowhound. Tuscany Grill also sounds like a nice place for lunch if it is not too much of a drive for you.

I hope you enjoy the Poodle Show. It sounds like fun.

I grew up on Red Door Sub Shop subs. Left town in 1976, but they are still going strong, and I still get back there for a submarine everytime I'm in town. The epitome of good eating in Salisbury. They are on Rt 13 and about a 15 minute drive (west on Main from the Civic Center area and then left on 13 for about 2 miles. Best to use a Garmin to find it.
