I'd add Proud Mary's to the list.

Yeah I was going to add that, but I was thinking more of carryout type places, but yeah that definitely should be on the list.

Thanks for this list, I didn't think there were any Thai restaurants in this part of the county. And I didn't realize there was a Chick fil a in Brandywine...I cant stand traveling on Route 5 though

Yeah Bangkok Golden is a very well regarded Thai Restaurant. It has had write ups in the Post. There is also another Thai Restaurant at the National Harbor, but I am unsure what the quality of that is.

As far as going down Route 5, I don't blame you. Going up to Capitol Heights is usually a lot easier traffic wise.

i like the 4 pho restaurants in beltsville/laurel [pho88 has a slight edge over phoVN1, imho], and sardi's peruvian chicken in beltsville is awesome.

I like the suburban feel. Right now I live in College Park and I really don't think it's too bad at all. I like that it's more affordable than other parts of the DC area (my rent would probably be $1000 a month if this was Bethesda). I've also been around the Woodmore area a lot and it seems pretty quiet and peaceful despite being near two big roadways. I think PG gets a bad rap, there are a lot of parts that are pretty great.

I will definetely be moving to Bowie or Hyattsville when my lease is up, or stop being lazy and cook
Chipotle isn't that healthy, loaded with calories and salt. Oh well I still like their food.

I love living here in Greenbelt! Been here almost 5 months. I love that I'm so close to DC it's an easy Metro ride in and there is always parking at Greenbelt when I need it. I love the neighborhood, the fact I can walk to everything - I just adore Greenbelt (I live in Old Greenbelt). Neighbors are very friendly and we all look out for one another. My daughter also loves it here - we picked the right place. I work in PG County and my commute is fairly easy so no complaints there (I chose where to live partially by where my work was).

We have really enjoyed the food options too - we have a new fave restaurant in Greenway Plaza called Polla Cabana - Peruvian - the chicken is awesome and the fried plantain and rice and beans I swear I'm addicted too!

We also love going down to Franklin's and Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville - and then exploring on route 1 all the restaurants. I just feel like everything is so convenient to us.

Its suburban but urban enough as my daughter says - plenty of green around to enjoy - stroll around the lake or just go for a drive a bit. We just hit up Bowie Town Center and that was fun - should be even more fun now it is Christmas time.

Hilarious!! I went to elementary school with Clint Hovermale and the Charlies pizza kids (Cally, Patronda). Back in those days Charlie's was a greek pizzeria run by a greek family, the Alarofas(sp) family. I wonder if it's still them. Anyone know?

I'm in Texas so I can't just drive over to that place and check it out - though I will in a few months.

I haven't been to Charlie's in a long time, but I think Hovermale is run by the next generation these days. It is still just as good as it was when I was little.
