Bethesda (Stromboli and Moby Dick)

I now have cause to drive by these two places several times a week after work.

Can anyone tell me what exactly is good at each one? Exactly what do you order?


Moby Dick's
721 S Broadway, Baltimore, MD 21231

  1. Moby Dick, compared to other kebab places, really is subpar in my opinion, though many like them.

    Stromboli is decent but not fabulous. The pizza is okay relaxed eating in. The real winner is to keep a couple of their frozen stromboli's in your freezer for a pinch hit.

    1. I haven't been to them in a while, but before I decided that eating nothing but cheese for lunch was a bad idea I would always get the calzone at Stromboli that, I think, is called the Stromboli. It was cheese and cheese and spinach and garlic, served with a little pot of marinara sauce on the side. I've had friends who always ordered the Miss Piggy, which I think had sausage.

      I've seen other reviews on here of Moby Dick, some good, some bad; you can search them. It isn't the greatest kebab in the world but it's fine, and inexpensive for Bethesda. When I go there I get the chicken kebab and these great big pieces of naan.

      The other good thing you're probably driving past is the felafel truck at the Farmers Market, about a block north of that.

        I didn't find the felafel truck to be all that good.

        Was wondering about the taco truck on River Rd. Was just up there last week and usually stop at it but it wasn't there. Anyone know?
