      KBQ is only about 15 minutes away. It's not "nice", just BBQ, but it's pretty good BBQ.

      Anything within 5-10 minutes, or walking distance, is a chain.

        Are you looking for a sit down place or a place with decent food you can grab and take for tail gating? Youll have much more success with the latter.

          Yes sit down place - thinking of going to National Harbor - seems to only be about 15 - 20 minutes away.

            Hmm... that MIGHT be 20 minutes in no traffic. But hey if you are willing to go there you may as well look at places in Old Town Alexandria or even in DC. National Harbor is an overpriced and generally mediocre convention bubble. Ive had season tickets for years and on the rare occasion Im not tailgating Ive been known to eat on Capital Hill and then just take East Capital out to Central Avenue right to the stadium. Easily under 20 minutes unless you are really running close to kick off.

          Wegmans is right there. Not a restaurant but decent options.

            East Moon Asian Bistro - http://www.eastmoonbistro.net/ - located in Bowie MD not far from Fedex.

            Nice sit down location gorgeous dining room and great service

            You can also try Grace Garden off of Route 450 and Half Note Lounge which is about a 1/2 mile up from there

              Unless there's another Grace Garden, that's in Odenton - closer to Ravens stadium than FedEx!
