Dinner near Rockville, MD?

A colleague and I will be in the Rockville MD area for a week and need some suggestions for dinner. Can't go too crazy on the expense account, but we are looking for good food! American, Italian, Asian, seafood are all options. We will have a car, so we can travel if it is worth the ride. Thanks in advance.

  1. Joe's Noodle House. Best Sichuan food in the area. It won't break the bank, either.

    1. Joe's Noodle House in Rockville is my favorite. Sichuan small plates. Wontons in red hot sauce, shredded radish, homemade bacon and leeks. Too many to mention.

      1. Third Joe's. Search this board to help navigate the extremely extensive menu.

              Well, it is good for breakfast but otherwise, I agree with your comment. And Hooters? Really? Fridays? Really? Original Pancake House? Really? Chilis? Really? Cheesecake Factory? Really?

                I like the silver diner especially with their newer healthier menu. I included the chains for historical reasons since he was looking for inexpensive options

          1. Crisp and Juicy across from Haverty's furniture on Rockville Pike. Chicken, Rice and Beans - get the hot sauce which isn't that hot. We moved two years ago and it's the one thing we really crave.

            Also Thai Farm which is kind of hidden in the back of King Farm in an office building.

            Uncle Julio's is just an extra exit up 270. Quite the experience if you don't have one. Great fajitas, frozen sangria to die for and I am quite find of their Camarones Brochettes; shrimp wrapped in bacon.
