This place is very close to my home, and the service is usually pretty nice and 10 mins quick. The issue is it isn't what I am used to
My mother's peppersteak lacked the spice and my general tsos chicken wasn't too flavorful. It is good for a run of the mill place to eat, but far from it's near by competitors.
The menu is a relatively similar to the joint that started it all in Clarksville, but the service gig is the same. You order at the counter and they just bring you the food...but that's about it. No real table service, which makes the notion of tipping confusing. I got the white pizza and the gnocchi sorrentina...the gnocchi, good as always, but I felt like I have had better white pizza in my times. If you are in Glenwood though, this is a good place to call in and pick up!
I love gnocchi and I can say that these are not an item that you can readily find in all sorts of different places. I think it may be a little expensive, but it depends on really what you order. The Gnocchi al pesto/sorrentina are delicious. The Sicilian thick crust pizza is good too. It's a family favorite in Clarksville.
I am one of those guys that feels that the society of hats was a much classier way to go out on the town. This place has all sorts of hats for both men and women, all sizes. I am pleased with the products and the service there...one time they didn't have one in stock, so the cashier went to the phone to the other Baltimore store and asked if I wanted it shipped there. They arranged for me to pick up the hat there and all was well!
Of all the Indian places I have been to, this one takes the cake for having the most extensive menu. The service, like a lot of Columbia Indian places is great, and the food is pretty good. I like their soups, something that not all Indian places have. Get some naan and some Malek Paneer for a toe tappingly delicious meal.
I understand DC has pretty big restrictions on dispensing alcohol to minors, but after I got into the front of the place, getting by the bouncer and going to the nice and cool smoking lounge at the top I found myself awe struck. I had already ordered one drink, and then my situation deteriorated:
"Johnny Walker on the Rocks"
"How about this, you show me some ID, the drinks on the house."
Well, obviously I was not going to turn that down, but he thought I was not 21. I show him my ID where he proclaims I was not who was on the ID...that it was my brother. And I said, what? This is me...he walked away and didn't give me my drink, in attempts to serve others. I removed my library card, visa, student ID, insurance health plan and asked
"Would I take my brother's entire wallet and manage to look just like him for these other photos?"
It was worth the laugh and the free drink, but that bartender completely ruined my impression of the place. Talk about profiling.
This place had a good deal for a night's stay that included late check out, included breakfast in bed, all sorts of other perks on a Friday night's stay. The bed was amazingly comfy, the food was great, and the bathroom was quite a site. The desk was extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a great location, not far from metro or Georgetown. It was expensive though...but they had a good deal, so I jumped on it. Price may be a huge detractor for some.
I have nothing against the quality and the service of this place...but I am quite objective and immune to cupcake pandemonium. They have quite the selection of rotating cupcakes, some are incredibly delicious and others are just too rich to enjoy. All the same, I don't think the price is fair, and the only way to get a reasonable bargain is to buy in bulk (surprise surprise). I know people really enjoy waiting in lines to get into cramped spaces to find that it isn't the day their cupcake is available...or go at a reasonable hour to see it is actually not even open...(sarcasm)
Bottom line is give the place a try and see if the price justifies the taste. I frankly don't think it does. I'll go to a grocery store or ask my mom for a cupcake.
Not too old on the scene, Frederick's Black Hog is a premiere place to get exactly what you order, with chicken, ribs, pork or beef, corn bread, white bread, slaw, and so forth. Modestly presented on plastic trays and napkins all over, the place is quaint and often packed. There is good reason for the buzz...it is not pretentious like some other places downtown and the food is quality.
At here last night! Very good food and at reasonable prices. I got the spinach dip appetizer, the beer sampler, and the plain burger. All were terrific! The waitress was nice to let me sample a beer I asked for when she thought I may not actually like it...and I did and she made a good call. I took her official recommendation and it was much better. Try the aprihop!
