    We all have food franchises around us, but is there a little mom and pop type joint that you like to eat at, that's basically owned small time by a mom and pop or some family? There's a pizzeria here in the city called Luke's(if you live near you might know about it). It's become pretty popular as of late, but I usually hit because they have yet to change their price for a slice of pepperoni and a drink for years, which is what keeps people coming. There is a Pizza Hut, Papa John's and others all around it, but I never hesitate to go there instead.

    so you like "italian beef", huh?

    i usually go to either "joe's cafe" down the street from my place or "lisa's radial cafe" for a good old fashoined, artery-clogging breakfast with friends on saturday or sunday mornings. you can't beat coffee, eggs, toast and hashbrowns with a heaping helping of grease when you're hungry and hungover.

    Back where I used to live in Laurel, MD there's a diner called "The Silver Diner" that was open til like 4 a.m. I remember in high school we'd always go there really late and just talk for ages. They have the best milkshakes ever!

    I live in a rural area, so pretty much every restaurant outside of fast food is 'mom and pop' type. We have a mexican place called Ayala's. Good food. My wife works at Cheezie's . They have practically anything you could want to eat. There's also a 24/7 place called Bimbo's. I s#it you not. Bimbo's.

    Depending on which side of the state I'm living on at the moment, I either go to Boomers Drive-In

    [​IMG]

    or to Cougar Country Drive-In

    Not very exciting on the outside, true, but both make excellent burgers, fries and milkshakes, and that's all that matters. :word:

    I remember that place, though I don't remember if I ever ate there as a kid. Laurel used to be a decent place...now, not so much. :csad:

    Spartanburg, SC........The Beacon

    I don't know why it is so famous, but whenever a presidential candidate comes through town, they always stop at The Beacon. In fact, there was some republican candidate there last night. I can't remember who.

    They have the best chili cheese burgers and their banana splits are big enough for four people to eat off of.

    Yeah, I'm glad I don't live there anymore. My dad still does, and it's not a bad neighborhood at all, but as a city I just don't like it.

    This thread makes me really hungry :csad:

    It got too crowded. Used to love going to the drive-in across from the Laurel mall...when there was a drive-in that is. God I'm getting old. :csad:

    Is Maryland City Elementary still there?

    Haha wow, I can't remember there being a drive-in. I'm not sure about the elementary school...I never really paid attention to the schools when I was going through the Maryland City area. I just know that there are a million stores there now!
