Un-Chowed Treasures?

What's your favorite place that you have *not* seen mentioned (or mentioned very little) on Chowhound? And yes, I expect responses to abide by the usual "no national chians" rule. I'm just looking for great places that haven't been mentioned on here. Heck, you can do a search on your candidate before posting, and check how often or if it has been mentioned!

The goal here is to perhaps scare up some under-appreciated or overlooked gems. Everybody has their "usual suspects" list that one mentions reflexively. For example, some have noted that my answer to a lot of Chowhound questions is "Ras Doobie!" What can I say, I like the place, and the man. But for this thread, my hope is to nudge all of us out of our normal "go to" lists, and to see if we can rediscover some old faves, or get some attention for deserving up and comers that haven''t gotten into our collective "regular rotation".

For a start, I'll mention "Viva La Raza" for good "I'm the only person speaking English here" Mexican in Glen Burnie - an alternative to the better-known La Sirenita and El Salto. Yes, it's been mentioned on Chowhound a couple of times, but mostly in references to "What went into the place where Shaking Duck Butt used to be?"
