The Canopy in Ellicott city, little hole in the wall, carryout only.

 

But their food is fab

 

Not as good as Chap's, but they do have really good pit beef.

I loved The Canopy in Glen Burnie. Used to go there all the time.

Ruth Chris is so over-rated, not sure how they can stay in business with inferior food and high end prices.

Any Odenton people here?

 

Did Jims Hideway ever reopen on the inside?

 

haven been there is years, and been thinking about needing to revisit there.

I think you just described every steakhouse. If you have a cast iron pan and a broiler you can do just as good if not better than a steakhouse for a third of the price. Unless it’s one that dry ages their meats or something fancy like that which you’ll certainly pay extra for. I can’t remember the last time I went out for a steak.

Yep. Wife makes a mean steak at home using stovetop and oven and I have an Ooni pizza oven that can get to 900 degrees and I can do a steak in there on cast iron sizzle pans in about 5 mins. Just as good or better than any upscale steakhouse.

Hanger steak at Langerman's was my favorite dish in the city before they closed. That's not a top end cut so not really in the "steakhouse" category.

Was in Mt. Washington. Sons of former Colts HC. Huge memorabilia. But calling card was the steaks which were just ridic.

I think there is a huge difference here.

 

At least in my perspective.

 

Longhorn / Lonestar / Logans / Texas Roadhouse / Outback are all pretty much in the 13-27 range, depending on house steak, ribeye, etc.

 

Of course the Ribeye is going to taste better than the House Sirloin. But, when on a budget. I would rather have a House Sirloin over a fast food burger.

 

Ruth Chris steaks start in the 40 range and end up at 59 for their Ribeye. Longhorn's Outlaw Ribeye is twice the quality at half the price that Ruth Chris is.

 

It would be like buying a Chevy Corvette and it running like a Chevy Impala, Or a Ford Mustang GT and get a Fusion quality.

 

Are the steak chains perfect, no, but typically, they do a better job of cooking steaks, and I will send a steak back to the kitchen if I have to.

 

As the price of the food goes up, my tolerance for inferior goes down.

Stuggy’s is set to move from its cramped location on South Broadway in Fells Point over to a more spacious location on 1928 Fleet St (formerly Papi Cuisine) by the end of the year.

I went to a new BBQ place over the weekend, and it was awesome.  2Fifty BBQ, in Riverdale Park, MD just south of College Park on Rt 1.  We had the Wagyu brisket and pulled pork, and both were great.  I think this is the best BBQ in the area - highly recommended.

Mission BBQ has a new blackplate smokeout strip steak, had that last night, and hard to beat, an $11 that tastes great, is juicy and tender enough to cut with a plastic knige.

Went to Limoncello last week, enjoyed that. 

Also recently went to Perennial, that was also good.
