Do you watch Diner’s, Drive-ins & Dives?

If so, then you’ve seen Guy Fieri travel from coast to coast in search of the country’s most legendary dishes. 

He has made several stops in nearby Baltimore, and the restaurants not to be missed near our Ellicott City apartments include:

Broadway Diner

Open 24 hours, the Broadway Diner, located 22-minutes away, was visited by the Food Network in 2009. It’s recognized as one of the “most coziest and delicious diners in Maryland,” and the booths feature jukeboxes full of classic tunes. The service is always fast and attentive, and regulars are known by name. For lunch or dinner, Guy recommends the Hungarian goulash, which he called “goulishious.”

Blue Moon Cafe

Featured on season three, the Blue Moon Cafe is famous for its unique breakfast offerings. Sarah Simington opened the restaurant in 1996 after honing her skills at restaurants across the nation. She serves huge portions and wants every bite to invoke discovery and playfulness. Sarah’s eclectic, rock and roll style is also reflected in the dining room that’s complete with stripes, murals, and chandeliers. Try the Captain Crunch French toast. It was Guy’s favorite and can be enjoyed with hash browns or crispy bacon. Blue Moon Cafe is a 24-minute drive away.

Boulevard Diner

Step into the Boulevard Diner, located 26-minutes away, where the decor reminds everyone of a simpler time. Its fifties theme features stainless steel, neon lighting, and a jukebox that plays all of your favorite tunes. The diner has many loyal customers, and it even inspired author Bob Staab to pen his book Growing Up in Dundalk. Guests enjoy friendly service and are invited to dine between 6:00 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. You can’t go wrong with the Boulevard’s famous sour beef and dumplings. They were sampled by Guy, and are a customer favorite. 

These are just a few of the renowned restaurants near our Ellicott City, Maryland apartments. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We would love for you to see our vibrant community firsthand.
