No, the wings are just a little smaller than you'd be used to because that's what they're used to I guess. I have no idea where they get the chicken.

If you go down the road in the bethany 40 shopping center, tehre is a small korean restaurant name "Rainpia", that serves excellent chicken. Before BonChon opened up, that was my go to place for some awesome spicy korean wings... Also, for those who are adventurous, try out the "Jokbal", which are pig's feet. Make sure you get the spicy one though.
Got some chicken at the Burtonsville Roy's. Not as good as I remembered from 10+ years ago
Read the first few pages, but got annoyed, so forgive me if some of these have been mentioned.
Coal fire is great. The coal dust you get on your fingers after eating one of their pizzas is different, but pretty cool. Their crabby mac is also fantastic.
Asean Bistro by Howard is pretty good.
Chen Hibachi grill off Baltimore nat'l pike near the post office is really freaking good. Imagine Old Country buffet, but instead with all sorts of asian food, and a sushi bar. Pretty cheap to.
Crab Shanty is one where it's a 50/50 shot if your food is great, or not. However their whipped baked potato is alone worth going there. You have to wait a while for foob, but my understanding is it has a pretty good bar.

Agree about Coal Fire. My favorite pizza place in Howard County by far. Their Creole is really good, too.
Any of you fine folks shop at Boarman's Meat Market? LS today.

I thought it was glorious.
Not HoCo-- but we don't seem to have a Baltimore restaurant thread
so how is Roy's in Harbor East, going there tonight. Is it fancy?
gotta admit-- when I heard we were going to "Roy's" i got excited for a gold rush chicken sandwich and a holster of fries
There is one, I'll link it/bump it. Might be something in there.
Went to Columbia Ale House a couple weeks ago. Food wasn't bad at all. I got a burger that held its own and the mussels that my friend got were pretty good. Lot of Oliver drafts. A pretty solid addition to the growing line-up out there.
Taking a business partner out tomorrow night in Baltimore for dinner. Looking for a good seafood or Italian place near the Convention Center
That place is souless. I felt like I was in a doctor's office when I went there. Im not sure what niche they're going for. The beer selection doesnt compare to Frisco or Klobys (the few guest beers were ok, but the Oliver beers are meh for the most part). The food seemed over-priced to me for the area, Id sooner go to Victoria's if Im going to spend their prices.
Food prices seemed reasonable to me, but maybe that was my hangover speaking. Don't think they're trying to compete with Frisco or Victoria.
It wouldn't be my first choice by any means, but there's a market for it and I expected worse than I got.
You have no idea how excited I was at first when reading "Roy's in Harbor East"
Wearing a fry holster is one of the five coolest things a human being can do. Stupid Hawaiian fusion.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
I've been avoiding it. I'm way too familiar with Pratt St. Ale House, which I hate. Can't imagine this place would be much better. Maybe a little cleaner than Pratt St.
I've been to the Columbia Ale House three times. First time, both my wife's salad and my chicken sandwich were sub-par. Maybe it was just working the kinks out at a new place, but I was really disappointed and probably wouldn't have gone back anytime soon except we had a group outing calendared for that Saturday. The next two times we just got appetizers and they were fantastic. The nachos, sliders and spinach dip are all fantastic. I would put their spinach dip up against any restaurant in HoCo, and just below the holy grail of spinach dips - Houston's. They also have really good HH prices on apps and beers. So my advice is to go there for HH and get apps.
As for it being "soulless," to use that elitist expression, I don't expect much "soul" in HoCo and don't think Victoria's or Frisco really deliver on that front either. Victoria's bar has some swag, but it's grossly overpriced and I find their food and menu to be just OK. Victoria's is going for a more high end crowd than the Ale House or Frisco. The old Frisco had some soul, the new one not so much and the food isn't as consistent as it used to be. Come on down to T-bonz if you're really looking for some soul. I'll be sitting at the bar.
I'm not a fan of Pratt Street Ale House or the Oliver's in Fells. This place is much better imo. They have about 20 Oliver's beers on tap and about the same number of "guest" beers on draft, and the selection is surprisingly good. One time I went there and they had Chouffe Houblon on tap, which is an amazingly good Belgian. I find Frisco's beer menu to be too IPA heavy. The owner is an admitted hop head, but c'mon man, a little diversity is in order.

Got it again today. Boy was I wrong. It's real, and it's fantastic.
So I went to the Wegman's for the first time today. Not much of a crowd at all between the weather and middle of the day on a Monday, but I can see how people love the place. Would definitely go more often if I was in the area and it wasn't a zoo and a half like it usually is when I drive by.
Anyone been to Xitomate? Relatively new mexican place in the same complex as Victoria and Dunkin Donuts (it's where the Donna's used to be). I was there last night, margaritas were pretty awesome, but food was in the average-to-above average range. Columbia's mexican scene is pretty poor, imo, which might make this the best restaurant by default.
None of these are technically Columbia but nearby. El Azteca on 108 in Clarksville is pretty good. Go get tacos at R&R Tacqueria at the Shell at Rts. 1 and 175. Awesome stuff. I've only been once but El Hidalgo near Rts. 100 and 103 was pretty good, too.
Zapatas has pretty good authentic mole's and stuff. I like the place, but it gets mixed reviews. Plus it's located in ghetto-ass Harpers Choice
yeah Zapatas gets the love from somebody who knows authentic Mexican
