Occasionally I check the stats and the search engine terms that bring people here to FrederickMarylandOnline and one caught my eye the other day that got me thinking. The search was “top 10 restaurants in Frederick, MD” and I thought, hmmm, I’ve never really thought to try and put together a top 10 list. Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy! If you could see my scratch paper with restaurants crossed off and moved up or down the list, you’d see how difficult this was for me. I have my own personal favorites (some of which are chains that I purposely omitted from my list, mostly because I think I prefer the people who work at those places rather than the actual food), but I decided to put together a list of my family’s favorites rather than my own. Here’s mine:
10: Barley and Hops
9: La Paz (one of older daughter’s favorite)
8: Toppings (great bread for the subs, great wings, good pizza)
7: Pane e Vino (Mt. Airy)
6: El Paso (younger daughter’s favorite)
4: Mangia e Bevi (best pizza, in my opinion)
3: Acacia (good for special occasions)
1: Monocacy Crossing (yummy everything I’ve ever had there, especially the scallops appetizer)
I’ve left off certain places that are known for their seafood because I’m allergic to crabs, shrimp and lobster.
What’s on your list?
