After the Hike: Local Favorites

Ernesto's Fine Mexican Food Great atmosphere loved the Tamales and Margaritas!
10040, Ellicott City MD — (410) 750-1005
Honey Pig Gooldaegee Korean Grill You must get the Jumuluck-Seasoned Beef Ribs! Medium rare! Also, start with Pork Bellies!
Sonic Drive-In The cherry limeades will bring a smile to your face.. especially the Rt. 44 size!
Pachanga Cocina Mexicana The guac is always fresh and they make a great margarita to go with their delicious food.
Mission BBQ This place is awesome! Everyone we encountered here was friendly and super helpful. Supports Military/Police/Fire/EMT. DELICIOUS BBQ. I wish this place would come to Western PA.
Lighthouse Tofu New combination menu. Select entree with a choice of tofu soup. Great deal!!!
Shilla Bakery Shilla is remarkably similar to the beautiful French inspired bistros and bakeries in downtown Seoul. I simply love this place!
Nora's Kabob All Greek food, hummus, falafel, kabobs, salad
Bonchon Chicken Wings are sooo crunchy and good!
The Canopy A favorite when i was a teenager. Cheap, quick, delicious. Now, if only there was a place to sit and eat!
Solana Pizza & Sub Best cheesesteaks in Ho Co
Ledo Pizza Awesome service and great prices!
Tian Chinese & Korean Restaurant Best jjajangmyun and tangsooyook I've ever had five star status
Tigi's Ethiopian Restaurant and Market The food here is amazing! Whatever you get, you won't be disappointed. Grab a menu and seat yourself. Owners are very helpful in explaining the items in the menu.
Little French Market I am in love with this place! Love the caramel kiss! :-)
Manor Hill Tavern Beer, obviously. Wine selection isn't bad. Cocktails are not great. I've been here twice, and the cocktails are not quite up to snuff. Pickle-brined fried chicken is great. Really light. Food great.
The Trolley Stop The BEST bread pudding EVER.
6 Oella Ave, Ellicott City MD — (410) 465-8546
Carrabba's Italian Grill The Chicken Bryan is the best thing on the menu.
Outback Steakhouse Don't go when there's supposed to be 24 inches of snow. I know u live in columbia and drive a suv but still. Just stay home
