Where to eat? We're all about supporting the family-owned restaurants!
- Frank's Pizza & Pasta: In 1985, Italian cousins Frank & Armando moved to Maryland and opened this pizza shop on Belair Road, using only fresh ingredients (and no dough preservatives). Over 30 years and two generations of the family later, they continue the tradition of quality food that brings people together. Try the cheesesteak!
- Killa Dogz: Another family-run business, this one begins with a love story and the dream of spreading joy through funky, fantastic dogs! Adding a feisty flare to the traditional ballpark delicacy, founders Fredericka and Keith Dockins provide hunks of burnin' hot dog love throughout the community. In addition to a wild menu, they also have a special "Dog of the Week" like the Summer Slaw Dog featuring pulled pork & barbecue sauce.
Grab a beer!
- Oliver Brewing Company: As one of Baltimore’s original craft brewers, they are always pushing the boundaries with new styles, ingredients, and flavors. In addition to the tasting room, Oliver's also delivers around the state. Check out what's on tap!
