I cannot help but long for Ocean City, Maryland in the middle of this August. With so many restaurants on the strip, it’s Dumser’s Drive-In that comes to mind today. A classic beach-town eatery specializing in burgers, shakes, and fries. Good prices and good eats. Just don’t go there on a diet. March 2017.

It’s the height of summer, so of course you need to head to Ocean City, Maryland for some world-famous Thrasher’s French Fries. Maybe they aren’t the best thing in the world, but still pretty good and iconic. The line will seem like a mile long just to get some. All they do are fries. You…

I learned how to swim in the pool of this Howard Johnson’s hotel in Ocean City, Maryland when I was about six or seven years old. My parents had signed me up for swim lessons at Dossil’s in Middletown, NJ, but after a horrific experience (the instructor would literally grab and throw us crying, scared…

A 40 ounce “Fish Bowl” margarita from Tequila Mockingbird in Ocean City, Maryland. Will had to tackle this one—I prefer ’em on the rocks. This place does not fool around with drinks. Best, strongest margaritas I’ve ever had, hands down. The gummy worms were a nice touch. March 2017.

Travel Guide MD: An Alamo You Don’t Want to Remember

Please note: I have NEVER stayed here.¬†You may now proceed. I needed to see it up close. One week every summer of my entire childhood was spent in Ocean City, Maryland. On the way in, we would always pass a motel on 50 named the Alamo. A normal person would probably not even pay any…

Travel Guide MD: BJ’s on the Water (Ocean City)

We ended up here by accident. Why this was is cause for another post, but everything happens for a reason. I am glad fate brought us to BJ’s on the Water. I ate here once as a child, when I was about 13. I did not remember anything except sitting outside by the bay. This…

Coming Up on 100 Restaurant Reviews

Tomorrow, I will be posting my 100th restaurant review. I first started doing food write-ups in the spring of 2015 on my personal blog after looking to try something new. This past fall, I decided to move all of my food and drink writing to a separate website, which I called Eating New Jersey. There…

Travel Guide MD: Tequila Mockingbird (Ocean City)

When you have to wait an hour on a Wednesday night in December, you know the food is going to be good. Tequila Mockingbird may have the greatest restaurant name ever. They were also slammed when we ate there a few nights ago. It was as if everyone in Ocean City was getting dinner at…

Travel Guide MD: Decatur Diner (Ocean City)

They have something on the menu called the “Pipeline”. When I ordered it, I was asked if I was absolutely sure I wanted a full instead of a half. I asked the waitress to elaborate further. Her description ended up being spot on, but in my mind, I could not possibly conceive it to be…

Travel Guide MD: The Crab Bag (Ocean City)

Talk about a seafood marathon. After eating way too much fried food that¬†afternoon but still in the mood for seafood that night, we decided to give The Crab Bag a try. I had read that they had the best crabs in Ocean City. Their menu is actually gigantic. There are more choices of various seafood…
