The lines at Samo's (makes you think you're in on something) but I still like the Shrimp Kaloumi and the avogolemono soup. Friendly staff
The stories from the guy behind the counter at Sovlaki Place. (I hear good dolmathes and salad but I haven't been yet)
The Prime Rib
Mathew's- great pizza and a busy bustling place
Scechuan House in Towson. 40's costumed waitresses- how does she keep those stocking seams straight? Masters at handling large parties. Don't forget to check for an exit location when they are reallly busy. Great food (whole steamed rockfish with scallions and ginger for $12.95. You've got to be kidding)
Thai Arroy (my favorite Thai food) with the pleasant staff dressed in beautiful Thai silk.
What are your favorites?
