Light Dinner Stop On The Way Home From New York

I'll be driving back to Falls Church from New York on Sunday evening and will probably want to make a stop to eat a bit north of Baltimore. I've stopped at Clarence's Taste of New Orleans a couple of times before and enjoyed it, but now it's closed.

I recall seeing a recommendation for a Mexican place, I think in a shopping center, just a few minutes off Interstate 95 somewhere around Edgewood but I couldn't find the post here. Anyone know what I'm talking about, or have a suggestion for a good stopping place?

It needs to be open on Sunday in the 7-8 PM range. I'll be alone, but I don't like eating at the bar. I'm not keen on Chinese for this kind of a food stop. Mexican, simple Italian, even a good burger, not so much food that I can't eat it, under $20, decent service so I don't have to wait for a table, wait for a server, and wait too long for the check.

A quick Google Map check suggests El Rodeo or My Three Sons might be likely candidates.

  1. My Three Sons is tasty (my information is about two years old, but doubt it's changed that much).

    1. Maybe R&R (Perry Hall)?
      Note hours on Sunday.

        Is that the taco joint in the gas station?

        I see they have another location in a shopping center (this may have been what I recall reading about here) but they close at 6 on Sunday.

          Yes, the one in Elkridge is in a gas station. Yes, I noticed it closed at 6 and that is why I mentioned it.
          Maybe Chaps would be a good match, but it is south of where you were looking.

      2. Just in case anyone's curious, I kind of flaked on this one. I left NY a couple of hours earlier than I thought I would, made my usual stop at McDonald's in Newark Delaware for a drain-and-refill, wasn't all that tired of driving, so I just went straight home. After unloading the car, went to Hong Kong Palace for dinner just five minutes away.
