Being a child of the 80's(35 now) and growing up in Arbutus, I remember eating out at a lot of great places growing up. We would travel all over Maryland for a good meal and sometimes meet up with family.
Earlier today my parents and I were talking about some of these great places(some still around, some closed) and it brought back memories. Now that I have a child, I would like to start a whole new bunch of memories for her. Even take her to places I once ate. So here's a list of places that I remember. I know I'll leave some great places off the list but here goes nothing.

Buelles- ellicot city
Cozy inn-Frederick
mountaingate- Frederick
Bowmans- Parkville
baughers- Westminster
bullocks- Westminster
Candlelight inn- Catonsville
sorrentos- arbutus
The loop- Baltimore city
Our place- Baltimore city
Some place that some orioles Legends(brooks, palmer,cal) used to frequent
G&M-Lansdowne
Little tavern burgers- highlandtown
Any place in little Italy
Mrs. K's tollhouse
Mr.G's- westview
Ginos- the old version
Bob's big boys
Haussners(sp)-highlandtown area
Atmans deli(Jewtown)- Baltimore city
The dogpound(best meatloaf sandwiches)-Baltimore city
Manny's deli-Parkville

So please chime in with your childhood favorites, even your family's favorites. From pizza to burgers to casual or high end restaurants no matter how old or how dumpy it is, it meant something to you and maybe someone else. Newer fast-food and Chain restaurants obviously didn't make my list. I'm looking for the nostalgic places. Places that will spark a conversation amongst family and friends.

Thanks,
Kevin
