They put a California Tortilla there years after I moved away, but I always eat there when I go to visit my Dad... Its mostly just chain restaurants and suburban sprawl...

The Olney Tavern is good... not a huge fan of Shoppers but Safeway is good for a grocery store (although I've never been IN the one in Olney)..

Safeway in Olney is gross cause its old. The last time I went in there some lady was buying Honey Bunches of Oats with a WIC card (food stamps) while I was buying generic with my hard earned money (thats for another post). Its being demolished soon and rebuilt. The best grocery in Olney (reasonable prices and good selection) is Giant. If you are seriously wealthy and healthy and want only organic, try Roots on GA Ave. Its got good stuff but is 3x the cost of Shoppers. I like that shopping center-- If you get your pet food at Bark and grab a latte at Starbucks then you are all set. Welcome to Olney!

Oh and by the way these are my favorites for eating out:

Pizza-Jerry's (Its cheap and quick so whatever)
Chinese takeout-House Fortune
Chinese eat in-Hunan Delight (really good)
Thai Food place near McDonalds is good, as is Wasabi Zen for sushi also near McDonalds.
Mexican-California Tortilla
I like Olney Ale House and Olney Grille for dinner, they are great.
I had a REALLY bad experience at Ricucctis but everyone else loves it.
I really like Jullianos Pizzeria in Laytonsville as well.

Despite these items I still drive to Aspen Hill for Panera and Chipotle which are the greatest places to eat cause they are cheap and somewhat healthy (depends on what you like at Chipotle, but I get salad.)

There is an Urban barbecue if you go east on 108. I recommend it to the fullest.

The olney grill has excellent lunches (burgers, sandwiches fries, etc).

I like Mamma Lucia's for italian.

Sol Azteca for mexican.

There is a "Fitness First" in Olney for working out (although I am not a member), there is also a swim club over on georgia ave.

I think the liquor store on georgia ave (in the Giant grocery store parking lot) has the best alcohol prices.

If you like football go to the Olney tavern. They have all the games on about 8 screens. It's the best place if you like Sports bars.

If you are so inclined, I'd love to hear about your place. I'd love to buy a plce in Olney.

Olney has lots of chain restaurants, but like the other posters indicate, there are lots of other good choices. I would add Mannequin Pis is a Belgian restaurant that has great mussels, among other things. I agree that, while Olney has 3 grocery stores, none are great: Harris Teeter is coming soon, which I am looking forward too...Roots was a good recommendation as well. Welcome to Olney!
